Kia has enlisted STEVEN TYLER to promote the new Stinger GT in a commercial that will air this weekend during the Super Bowl. The ad, "Fueled By Youth," takes Tyler on a journey back in time to the 1970s. A cinematic remix of Aerosmith's song "Dream On" plays in the background as Tyler drives the Stinger on an abandoned track and transforms into a younger version of himself. The spot also features an appearance from Emerson Fittipaldi, two-time Formula 1 and Indy 500 champion. Kia has released a second ad called "Feel Something Again," in which the events in the original commercial are played in reverse. The commercials are each a little over a minute long.
