2011 Kia Optima 'One Epic Ride' Super Bowl ad – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We know the 2011 Kia Optima is an excellent sedan, but apparently it's so desirable that anyone and everything across time and space are clamoring to get it.

In the Korean automaker's new Super Bowl ad, a police officer playing 'bad cop' decides to take the car off the hands of a couple, now cuffed to his parked motorcycle. The constable, in turn, is no match for a super villain, his slick helicopter and a waiting mega-yacht. The Optima nearly falls into the villain's hands, but by then, the all-new sedan has piqued the interest of the gods (we would have pegged Poseidon as a Maserati guy), and that's when things get really interesting.

Click past the jump to watch the elaborate and visually impressive journey unfold.

      Kia has always been good with their advertising and I must say, this really outdoes ALOT of its competitors (tho the VW dark vader is really cute). Plus good job on the design! Korean cars are really something else these days and makes me really want one!

      Reminiscent of the Smirnoff ad 'Emerald Girl'

      KIA Optima: Can't outmanoeuvre worm holes. Not such a good point to advertise.

      Epic commercial is epic. Nice touch using the futuristic (but canceled) RAH-66 Comanche.

      Makes the Camry looks more bland.

      Yeah... WHAT-Ever....

      I wonder if any body ooh and ahhing over it has actually priced one out? Loaded is 31 grand with one interior color for all exteriors cloth not leather (thats only available on the cheaper model and gross beige at that) , no wheel or tire options really nothing for your money. Oh yeah it's a 4 banger period. Buy a Malibu instead you can get a loaded LTZ v-6 with far more color choices inside and out for 28 grand with a 110 volt out let for your laptop a Bose stereo on star sat nav included!

      Once again.. the best looking mid-size sedan in US!

      I saw a black SX at a local dealer last night. Seriously killer looks that can put smiles to the owner while standing next to A4.
