Melissa McCarthy Hilariously Tries to Save the World in Kia Super Bowl Commercial

Melissa McCarthy Hilariously Tries to Save the World in Kia Super Bowl Commercial

Melissa McCarthy is down with the cause in Kia’s new Super Bowl commercial pushing its eco-friendly 2017 Niro crossover.


The spot finds the Emmy-winning actress, known for roles on the sitcom Mike & Molly and hilarious movie hits Ghostbusters and Bridesmaids, driving through a snow-covered forest when a voice comes over the car speaker.

“The whales need your help,” the voice says.

“I love whales,” exclaims a sympathetic McCarthy, who soon finds herself battling big waves to save her beloved sea creatures.

The ad pits McCarthy, known for her physical comedy prowess, in a series of environmental undertakings — saving trees and ice caps. All of her endeavors end with her goodwill turning to pain — falling off a cliff while rescuing trees and being gored by an angry rhino.

The ad ends with, “It’s hard to be an eco-warrior, but it’s easy to drive like one.”
