Blake Griffin Stars as a Cowboy in Kia Ad (VIDEO)

by December 22, 2014

LA Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin once again displays his acting chops in the latest funny spot from Kia.

Griffin plays a sheriff in a Western, but decides to improvise by ditching his horse for a sedan.

Hilarity ensues.

Per the NBA and Kia Motors:

NBA All-Star Blake Griffin and his comedic talents are back in a starring role in a series of new television commercials for Kia’s best-selling Optima midsize sedan.


Continuing the signature, satirical comedy of previous efforts, Griffin is cast in the lead role for several big-budget action movies set in the Old West, ancient Rome and an aircraft carrier in the series of three 60-and 30-second spots.


Much to the concern of his directors, Griffin begins improvising and replaces his scripted mode of transport – be it horse, chariot or fighter jet – arriving instead in the Kia Optima, and making each movie better if he does so say himself.
