Kia Hamsters Bringing Down The House

Kia is promoting the 2013 Soul with “Bringing Down the House”, a television commercial featuring the Kia hamsters in an 18th century opera house. The time traveling rodents transform an opera performance into a party house with the help of Axwell’s remix of “In My Mind” by Ivan Gough, Feenixpawl ft. Georgi Kay. Launched during the MTV Video Music Awards show, the Bringing Down the House campaign includes the Kia Motors America Silent Disco, and the In My Mind music video challenge on the Kia Youtube channel.
