Trio of Kias ‘Give It Everything’ to Tackle a Strange Landscape

Creative 244 Add to collection

Campaign created by David & Goliath LA and directed by Filfury stars three versions of the Soul model

Trio of Kias ‘Give It Everything’ to Tackle a Strange Landscape
It has been said that, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” And now, with an all-new and greatly expanded Kia Soul lineup in showrooms, Kia Motors America has launched an entirely different marketing campaign that builds upon the brand’s “Give It Everything” mantra and heralds the arrival of the most adaptable version ever of the brand’s iconic urban runabout. 

“We have taken the Soul to an entirely new level by giving it even more of Kia’s ‘Give It Everything’ credo. With the expanded lineup offering more style, utility, technology, comfort and adaptability than ever before, it’s a whole new species of Soul,” said Saad Chehab, vice president, marketing communications, Kia Motors America. “While nearly everything about the Soul is different, this campaign continues the fun and irreverent attitude that turned Soul into an icon over the last decade.”

Set to an energetic custom soundtrack, the spot entitled “The New Species of Soul” is the centerpiece of a multi-faceted campaign starring three unique versions of the Soul model. First, a turbocharged Inferno Red Soul GT-Line speeds down a stark and desolate landscape as the road begins to twist and turn into an ever-tightening spiral. Later, an Undercover Green Soul X-Line climbs dirt trails in a burnt-orange landscape filled with uneven terrain. And then a Solar Yellow Soul EX Designer Collection Package cruises through a maze of what appear to be skyscrapers. 

As the three Souls unite, the various locales are revealed to be a chameleon’s body with its shifting textures and changing colors just before the larger-than-life lizard slurps up all three Soul models with a satisfied smirk. 

“No matter what you throw at it, the all-new Soul has you covered. From the rugged X-Line to the turbocharged GT-Line and the head-turning Soul EX Designer Collection Package, Soul’s extreme adaptability makes it the ultimate chameleon,” continued Saad.

Since taking the automotive industry by storm when introduced in 2009, the Kia Soul defined and still dominates the category. The Soul has proved so popular in fact that in March of 2018, the one-millionth Soul vehicle in the U.S. was retailed, a testament to the model’s enduring appeal as one of the most versatile vehicles on the road today, endlessly adapting to, and changing with, the lifestyles of those that drive it. 

For the third generation, Kia “gave it everything” and poured more of its “soul” into every inch of the vehicle, resulting in rugged performance, thrilling technology and urban practicality, qualities that transcend geography and appeal to drivers of all ages. The campaign includes 60-, 30-, and 15-second broadcast versions for general market; and 30- and 15-second versions for the Hispanic market. A multi-channel digital campaign and in-cinema airings beginning in late April, will support the broadcast elements.
