David&Goliath Stages "Talent Show" For Kia
The average person’s attention span is just eight seconds. To promote the 2017 Kia Forte, agency David&Goliath plays on this insight by showing where the mind might wander (while driving) after eight seconds has elapsed.
In the :30 “Talent Show,” an aspiring singer daydreams that she is on stage performing in a competitive singing show. Kia Forte’s driver assist technologies bring her back to reality as the automatic braking system helps to avert a potential accident.
Phil Morrison and Joe Ventura of Epoch Films directed for agency David&Goliath.
