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.

The lad above has quite the adventure, albeit a short one, in this ad called¬† “One Block,” which comes equipped with the obligatory Amazing Spider-Man tie-in as well as some chipper Matt & Kim music and, why not, a raging war scene. Our smartphone-loving protagonist, though, is totally impervious (sound familiar?), weathering it all and finding comfort in the safety of his home, couch and furry friend. Uh, dude, look behind you. Credits after the jump.
