Plot / Description

"2013 Kia Optima Blake Time Travels - 1995 Free Throws" 
This commercial features Blake Griffin in his Kia Optima. He is talking to the UVO system and tells the stereo to play a song from 1995. He then starts driving and his car time travels back to 1995 too. He stops the car, gets out, and talks to a little kid hanging from a basketball rim. The little boy is Griffin's past self. They have a short conversation, and future Blake tells past Blake to practice his free throws. Future Blake then throws the ball and it gets caught in the rim (which is why he needs to practice).

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Take me back to 1995. UVO, play jukebox. 
Who are you? 
You, from the future. 
Is that your space ship? 
No, it's way better. It's my Optima with UVO voice-activated infotainment system. 
What else can you tell me? 
Practice your free throws... a lot. 
This is how we do it 
Whoa yeah 
This is how we do it
