Worst: Kia Optima - 'A Dream Car. For Real Life.'
There's perhaps no advertising trope more odious than an over-reliance on gender stereotypes, and this Kia Optima commercial joins a . When a pajama-clad "dream dwarf" accidentally sprinkles too much fairy dust on a sleeping man, every testosterone-driven fantasy he's ever imagined becomes a slumberland reality - wide-open racetrack, Motley Crue concert, giant submarine sandwich being sawed in half by hairy lumberjacks, bleachers filled with screaming, bikini-clad women - and, of course, Adriana Lima as the flag girl. The only problem with this particular fantasy? He's driving a Kia Optima. Oops.
