LA-based David&Goliath and KIA launch a new national campaign for 2016 Kia Sorento

Ads, Creativity

David&Goliath launched an integrated campaign supporting Kia’s sponsorship of Sunday Night Football (network show with 17.5MM viewers), showing how Sorento is a vehicle “Built for Football Families.”

Although it previously sponsored Sunday Night Football in 2014, this is the first time Kia is producing custom creative for NFL programming.


The campaign largely targets young males who are passionate, knowledgeable football fans. With this campaign, Kia’s goal is to further integrate the brand in football culture through the Sorento, a thoroughbred CUV, built for any football family of any size, in any part of the country. Other elements of the campaign include digital, social and promotional components.
