Blake Griffin pokes fun at himself in new commercial


If you do not watch television, for whatever reason, then you may might not know Blake Griffin is a huge spokesman for the car company Kia. The Los Angeles Clippers star is frequently in Kia’s commercials endorsing their Kia Optima.

In Kia’s latest commercial, the former Oklahoma Sooner hoops star pokes a little fun at himself.

I think it is really cool Griffin did this commercial. He is becoming one of the faces of the NBA, and keeps adding to his reputation as a goofy, likable guy.

Griffin is already one of the most exciting players to watch, but these advertisements have to be big for his popularity as well. Kia will hopefully keep rolling out these hilarious commercials featuring arguably the most emphatic dunker in professional basketball.

Update: Somehow missed this one just released. Still hilarious.
