Today’s Odd Pairing: Mark Romanek and Michelle Wie Team Up for Kia Spot

David & Goliath features overhyped golfer Michelle Wie in its latest spot for the Kia Soul. Challenger spirit, superior performance and terrific style are the marks Kia is trying to hit by bringing on Wie.

It makes sense doesn’t it? The music, Kid Sister’s, “Pro Nails,” helps reinforce that idea.

To pull off the TV effort, D&G enlisted, oddly enough, director Mark Romanek (One Hour PhotoNever Let Me Go) and Spotwelders editor Michael Heldman.
