A fantastical super-bowl style ad that has nothing to do with the Kia Sorrento.
Gorgeous to look at, and also babies.
Downside: voice-activated service requires driver to call out its unwieldy name: "Uvo".

'Overpopulation' is a bad thing. 'Cute Overpopulation' is worse. 

We should nuke that planet and tell our kids they are the last of their kind - and quit asking for puppies - ain't happenin'.

Irritating ad. I would chase my husband with a spider if he told such a ridiculous story.

I have no more use for the KIA hiphop fuzzies than I do for etrade's talking babies. A pox on all their houses.

Why is it funny to lie to your child when he asks a legitimate question?  And to lie so freaking elaborately (and stupidly, SO, SO STUPIDLY).  It's no wonder so many people in this world are jacked up.  Horrible commercial.  I wouldn't expect much more from the company that brings us the Fatf*ck Hamster Dancers and the horrible music that accompanies them.

Is it really any worse than saying it came from the stork, though? I mean, parents lie to their kids all the time about Santa and the Easter Bunny. Let the kids use their imaginations...they're not going to become psychopaths because of it.

I've just always been a firm believer in telling kids the truth.  It doesn't have to be graphic at such a young age.  Santa and the Easter Bunny are harmless fun in my eyes.  I just don't see a reason to lie about sex to kids.

Yeah, Santa is all well and good, but there's nothing wrong with telling kids a slightly edited truth about where babies come from instead of being all dippy and stupid about it. It's a natural, healthy thing.

That's exactly what I meant.  I don't want my children having misconceptions about sex.

Did anyone else notice the colorful use of language in describing where babies come from?  The BIG ROCKET SHIP shoots off DEEP into space and then PENETRATES the atmosphere, then they're RELEASED ALL OVER THE PLACE.  He's essentially describing ejaculating deep inside a woman's vagina.  Clever advertising, but at the end of the day, a piss poor commercial.

Okay, I see where you're coming from now. That does make sense...more of a birds and bees discussion.

Agreed. That being said, a kid that age obviously doesn't need a detailed, graphic description of sex. But I think most of us got the 'birds and bees' talk gradually over time. And with large percentages of teen girls claiming they "Don't know how they got pregnant", yes, it's VERY important to teach kids about sex. 

All in all though, the commercial is incredibly stupid and induced eye rolls on my part.

I noticed the EXACT same thing. Then they show a picture of all the "rocket ships" headed toward "earth"... looks very much like a bunch of sperm speeding toward the egg in all of those sex-ed videos I was subjected to in middle school. LOL

Hur Hur Hur kids say the darnedest things. That's so funny hyuk hyuk hyuk. That's a real knee slapper I tell you what. At least it is if you're a 70 year old grandparent with an IQ of about 70.

They need to put this commercial to bed, already.  I see it constantly.

I just saw it, as I didn't watch the Super Bowl. I gotta admit I got a good laugh. For some reason the dad imediately activating the kid song to distract the kid was funny.
