Kia’s Super Bowl advertising campaign in 2013 included a television commercial, “Space Babies”, aired during the fourth quarter of the game. The ad involves a six-year-old boy, a passenger in a 2014 Kia Sorento Limited, posing the classic question “Where do babies come from?”. Caught off guard, his father conjures up the wondrous tale of Babylandia, a distant utopia filled with baby humans and baby animals of all kinds. They graduate from Babylandia and board rocket ships and travel across the universe, parachuting down from the sky and finding their Earthly parents.
