Humor Me

If you watch television, commercials are unavoidable. However, if you’re like me, you agree that if you must be interrupted by them during your favorite show or at halftime of the big game they better be funny. Well, Kia and Chevrolet do not disappoint with their recent ad campaigns. Blake Griffin provides awkward comedic humor as he shows up out of no where in Kia’s commercials, while Chevrolet’s holiday ads feature a sales consultant named Nick who resembles someone very familiar to all of us. We’ve selected our favorites from each brand and you can watch them below.

Do you agree with our picks or prefer a different commercial? Is there another ad out right now that you can’t help but laugh at?

Rob Dyrdek Kickflips in a Chevrolet Sonic

A kickflip is a word typically associated with the sport of skateboarding, not one that involves cars. But Rob Dyrdek, star of MTV’s reality show “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory,” changed all that this weekend at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. The term kickflip describes a move in which a rider flips his/her board in a 360 degree corkscrew motion while in air. Dyrdek traded in his board for a Chevrolet Sonic as he launched himself off a titled ramp as he soared above an over-sized skateboard to become the first person in history to successfully kickflip a vehicle. A video of the stunt is available here on Chevrolet’s YouTube Channel and will also appear in the season premiere of Dydrek’s reality show (no air date at this time).
