Plot / Description

"2013 Kia Optima Blake Griffin Time Travels - 2006 Bench Press" 
This commercial begins with NBA star, Blake Griffin, driving around in his Kia Optima. He tells the voice activated UVO system to take him back to 2006, play jukebox. The car is engulfed in electricity, and it travels back in time to Griffin's old house where younger Griffin is lifting weights with a friend. Older Griffin teases the younger version of himself about his bench pressing abilities, and gives him some advise on how to get bigger muscles. 
 
Do you even lift?

Voiceover

Take me back to 2006. Play jukebox. 
You call that a set? 
Who are you? 
I'm you from the future. 
Are those weight lifting gloves? 
No, they're racing gloves for my Optima Turbo with paddle shifters. 
Any advice? 
Keep lifting and you'll look like this. Yeah. Yeah, I know. 
 
(Lyrics) 
Takes ya back to the past
