Video: Blake Griffin’s Kia Commercial

As expected, Blake Griffin’s over-the-car jam from the Slam Dunk Contest has been made into a Kia ad, featuring the throwdown in all of its slow motion glory. Check it out.

    Oh, that’s why he won despite all those average dunks.

  • c.a.

    Is anyone actually dumb enough to buy a car just because an NBA player is in the advert? I mean, would Griffin drive this car? No.
    He should have dunked over a Ferrari, that would have been a sight to remember.

    Shameless!! Demar got robbed, Blatantly!

  • Jer dawg

    Perfect storm that Kia and Blake combo. Go Clippers! Go win despite the trade. I hope it works out. Fans want winning and excitement. Half way there.

    Kia’s are 100% lame, Blake is not.

  • KSupreme

    shame on the nba for robbing derozan! next time derozan should jump over the owners/products of all the companies that sponsors the nba

  • KSupreme

    everytime i see a kia logo i get angry, BG still coo though

  • robb

    Well, they saved money. Smart guys.

    I’m with Demar, do away with all the silly props and let the guys focus on the dunks.

  • Riggs

    @C.A.: you can say that about EVERY commercial EVER.

  • TheMac

    He needed to jump over the car to win it, but being marketed helps..

  • Jrooks

    He didnt even jump over the whole car.

  • http://Www.nba.com Gman

    Man jumped over the corner but not fully. Swear he was standing on the hood after. Weaksauce!

    Yep… KIA paid the NBA/judges off so Blake could make the finals and win it with this dunk. You’ve got to be kidding me. I’m not mad at Blake, but wow.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I also like how they positioned the camera to make it LOOK like he jumped over the roof of the car, instead of the hood.

  • http://www.laumol.nl/weblog Laumol

    So DeMar would have won if he’d jump over a bucket of chicken wings?

  • Yesse

    This dunk was lame, even though it was over a car and this commercial makes it look even worse. I have seen better dunks made over a car than this. I personally would have liked to see what Ibaka or Derozan would have done in the last round.

    average dunk

  • http://nicekicks.com Meloman2.0

    i dont understand why they would include the clip of charles barkley saying “that dunk wasnt that impressive” in this commercial

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Average dunk, didn’t have room to land, car was to close to rim. The wackiest dunk of the slam dunk contest and The Blake to me pulled a Shannon Brown. His dunks were the simple for dunkers and he won, to me the Slam Dunk lost its edge after they gave it to The Blake for doing a 360 dunk, a arm in rim alley which is easier and jump over a hood catch dunk. NBA where rigged Slam Dunk contest Happens!!!

    Only adding more fire to the rigging thing.

  • Noses Malone

    they parked that piece about three feet too close to the basket.

  • http://airtsinelas21.blogspot.com Roy

    The Griff already did this dunk anyway, before the dunk contest. What’s the fuss?! Derozan!! Compete next contest!! Shout out to all my peoples! Pistons have a chance against Utah! Whatta game!


    this thing with the dunk contest reminds me of a movie with the wayans brothers dont be a menace…where loc dogg confronts another thug with a knife and the other one has a gun so he pulls out a gauge and so on, till Loc comes up with a rocket launcher..

    @TRIMEGADON lmaoooooooooooooooooo, so true. goodness grief I haven’t seen that movie in a minute, lol that joint was sooooo silly

  • Jose

    yea the dunk contest doesn’t look like rigged at all w/ this commercial. . . ha

  • http://dude Chukaz

    demar should compete next year and just over a can of sprite. he could get a boombox and play some music in the background just to mock griffin. He could call it the “pocket-sized griffin dunk” or “griffin dunk on a budget”

  • http://dude Chukaz

    btw griffin’s dunk was perfect. it totally matched the car. it was average and we’ve seen so much better (in case you ain’t know, i’m talking about the car… and the dunk. see what i did there?)

  • al

    @chukaz, good example use of mirroring symbolism…

  • youngmuggsy

    I can’t help but laugh at the use of slow-mo and the inappropriate music. It’s so over-dramatic I can’t figure out if it’s a parody or not.

  • Charles

    No more props. That was weak.

  • http://www.slamonline.com A.J. Moghaddam

    prolly coulda did that. im just your average white boy, barely dunking
