"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Can anyone explain this to me?

I checked. I really did. I didn't do any drugs. My hubby didn't do any drugs. Hell, we hadn't even had a beer. Yet, I saw this on TV last night. Can anyone please explain it to me?

Perhaps drugs could actually help with understanding here? Just saying... I doubt liquor can do the trick, there is no liquor hard enough for that. 'Hamsterdam'... phooo!

OMG, this commercial freaks me the eff out! I can't deal seeing those hamsters do all that, and dance and run w/ boxes over them pretnding it's a car! It's so weird.

Hahaha!! This is an idiotic commercial but I think the marketing team got their mission accomplished. They have us regular everyday folks talking about it!

I think they were referring to the shape of other vehicles with the toaster and box thing, although I don't see where their car is all that much different. After the 'used soap' era (where all cars looked like a used piece of soap), car companies are trying to visually differentiate themselves. I don't think Kia did a good job here, because all I see is a box they're trying to market as a 'cool, hip' box. And no, no drugs here, although they may have made the video more entertaining than it was!

I saw this also and it also freaked me out. No explanation here.

Nope. I hadn't seen this one but I've seen a few of the others and didn't get them either. This one however is a bit dumber. And I agree with someone else that their vehicle is just as boxy as most of the others.
