Blake Griffin 'Zones Out' in New Kia Ad

Clippers All-Star power forward delivers another entertaining commercial.

Published October 27, 2015

It's every baller's dream to enter the zone during a game, reaching a point where the basket appears as big as the ocean and every shot they put up finds the bottom of the net.

Blake Griffin wants fans to know how that bliss feels. That's precisely why the Los Angeles Clippers All-Star power forward is seen welcoming an average Joe "in the zone" in a brand new Kia commercial for the 2016 Optima.

The ad has a reclined, newspaper-reading Griffin telling a lost Optima driver in the clouds that he's "in the zone."

Griffin then reveals that despite appearing relaxed, he's actually in the midst of a pretty intense game and is preparing for one of his signature thundering dunks — at which point he elevates off the plush recliner to slam an alley-oop dunk.

Score another funny Kia ad for Blake Griffin! Now, let's see how many times he could enter the zone during the 2015-16 NBA season, which tips off Tuesday night.
