Blake Griffin travels through time in his Kia Optima

Who says you need a DeLorean to travel through time? In this new ad for the 2013 Kia Optima, Blake Griffin travels back to 1997 to teach his younger self some valuable life lessons. Set to the tune of OMC's "How Bizarre", Griffin ends his younger self's football career…and offers some very important fashion advice.

Boy, Griffin could have been one incredible NFL punter based on that kick. However, we are left wondering why Kia would go to great lengths to show their futuristic capabilities only to mention heated and cooled seats. This might have been big news in 1997 but it's hardly news now.
