Kia Motors America’s groundbreaking introduction of the all-new 2021 K5 continues with this weekend’s 72nd Emmy® Awards telecast. In a year full of firsts, Kia, in partnership with the Television Academy, is implementing a first-of-its-kind integration where the K5 will be prominently featured in what are sure to be the most high-profile and unforgettable moments during the telecast.
Each K5 appearance will highlight the style, performance and driving dynamics of Kia’s most powerful midsize sedan ever.
“Partnering with the 72nd Emmy Awards puts the all-new K5 front and center during one of the most watched live television events of the year,” said Russell Wager, director, marketing operations, Kia Motors America. “The K5 launch is like nothing the midsize sedan category has ever seen and this latest initiative highlights the ‘It Factor’ that sets the K5 apart from everything else.”
In addition to the in-show integration on Sunday, September 20th, Kia will also premiere a new broadcast spot during the Emmy Awards. The :60-second “Stunt” ad finds the sedan performing a never-before-seen jump between two ramps.
Created by our friends at David & Goliath, Kia’s creative agency of record, the effort includes both :30- and :15- second spots that will be used across both broadcast and digital platforms.
The 72nd Emmy Awards Telecast is the latest way Kia is showcasing the all-new K5 midsize sedan through unique and unexpected live events. The launch began in late July with the first-ever Live “Triple Threat Stunt”, and continued with the sedan being prominently featured on the semi-final’s opener of America’s Got Talent earlier this month.
The 72nd Emmy Awards will air live, Sunday, September 20th, at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT on ABC.
