Let’s Go Back to the Future Once Again with Blake Griffin

The Deadpan Dunker is at it again, traveling back in time for two new spots with his faux-DeLorean Kia Optima. In this latest series from David&Goliath, Blake Griffin targets his younger self in 2006 and 2002 to impart wisdom on lifting weights and wearing sunblock. He listens to a little Sean Paul. And he wears the genius red jumpsuit with the griffin logo.

One of the best campaigns on TV continues with more quality spots. Most athletes can’t act, but Blake’s straight-faced delivery and self-deprecation puts him ahead of every competitor out there. He also listens to Eiffel 65 and used to wear jean shorts, so there’s that. And if you need proof of commitment to the brand, he won the 2010 NBA Slam Dunk Contest by dunking over a Kia Optima as a gospel choir serenaded the crowd. Cliff Paul’s mustache can’t compete with that. Credits and the second ad after the jump.

Rappaport Heads to D&G

Just two years after reuniting with his former TBWA\Chiat\Day LA cohort Paul Nguyen at McCann Erickson’s LA office, we’ve been told by sources familiar with the matter that Jason Rappaport has split for an ACD gig at David&Goliath. D&G wouldn’t provide further comment on what clients Rappaport will be involved with, when he started or when he got his last haircut, but during his career, the creative spent a majority of his time at Chiat LA and Ground Zero. As for Nguyen, as far as what our sources say, he still remains an SVP/CD at McCann LA.
