All around them are skateboarders, soccer players, karate expert, and a jet fighter pilot who are also entering the zone.

Voiceover

Man: How'd I end up here. 
Griffin: You're behind the wheel of the next generation Optima. Its sophisticated interior has put you in the zone. 
Man: Yeah, that makes sense. 
Griffin: Well, I'm making a PB&J. 
Man: You got in the zone by making a sandwich? 
Griffin: Yeah, but it's textbook. Look at the peanut butter to jelly ratio. There's no crumbs, I didn't get any peanut butter in the jelly jar, or vice versa, and I only used one knife. 
Man: That's a nice sandwich. 
Griffin: It's perfect.
