The first of today’s Super Bowl car ads comes from Toyota, who have enlisted the star power of one of the hottest actors on television right now.
Kaley Cuoco is one of the stars of the hit TV show “Big Bang Theory”. In the ad, dubbed “Wish Granted”, Cuoco plays a genie who lives in a Toyota RAV4 and has to interpret the wishes of her Toyota driving family.
Just like yesterday’s Hyundai ad, there is fat guy abuse. I think I should complain on behalf of my chubby brethren.
Space Babies: Kia explains where babies come from
As I’m reading about this one, I have noticed an interesting trend. It seems like every car manufacturer has started calling their Super Bowl ads “Big Game Ads.” Makes me wonder if the folks overlooking the big foosball game are getting tired of advertisers taking advantage of their buzz. Isn’t that why the networks are able to charge insane prices for the air time? For this weekend’s game, a 30-second spot is going for $4 Million, up from $3.5 Million last year. Oh well, I suppose that has nothing to do with the Insider, but I thought it was interesting.
“Dad, where do babies come from?” It is one of those questions that every parent dreads. Kia’s interpretation is so cute that it is going to send herds of mommies over to Pinterest and Facebook, doing their part in sending this one viral.
