Lady Gaga Helps Kia Hamsters Get a Slick New Look

Running to Red CarpetThe Kia Hamsters, one of the most recognized advertising mascots of all time, are now sporting a slimmed down, slicked back look, thanks to multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning artist Lady Gaga.

The newest Kia commercial, a montage of the hamsters going from frumpy to fit and finishing with a red carpet strut, debuted after Lady Gaga’s performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

“Totally Transformed” also features Kia’s design-guru and company president Peter Schreyer working on the sleeker and sexier 2014 Kia Sportage.

Kia Hamsters Go from Thick to Thin

Take a Look at “Totally Transformed”:

The Kia Hamsters: The Surprising Sensation

The Kia Hamsters debuted in 2009 with the commercial “A New Way to Roll”, which showed stationary hamsters spinning a wheel and going nowhere. Enter the Kia Hamsters, riding in a sleek Kia Soul, and the sensation began.

Kia Hamster commercials go hand-in-hand with popular music. Songs featured in these spots include LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem, and songs from artists like Black Sheep and Goldfish.

Take a Look at the First Kia Hamster Commercial:

2014 Kia Soul: Totally Transformed

Although the Kia Soul is already one of the most popular vehicles available, winning honors and awards like Best Deal Under, $15,000, Coolest Cars Under $18,000, and topping the J.D. Power APEAL Study, the designers and engineers at Kia are not sitting still.

They have added a wide variety of design features, while maintaining the Soul’s recognizable look and feel.

2014 Kia SoulXenon headlights compliment the front grille, while vertical LED lights accent the rear.

On the inside, the 2014 Kia Soul has heated and cooled seats, an engine start button, and lighting that responds to audio cues and changes color and intensity based in the music track.

“Now in its second generation, the Soul maintains its individualistic edge with a fresh take on its iconic design as well as a ‘Totally Transformed’ driving experience, and the hamsters have followed suit by getting fit and developing a new fashion sense.”

– Michael Sprague, KMA’s VP of Marketing

Video: Learn About Kia’s UVO eServices Infotainment System

Kia is one of the most technologically advanced automotive brands, with favorite cars like the Soul, Optima, Forte, and Sorento leading the way in design and infotainment.

One feature that has helped Kia rise to the top of the automotive world is the UVO eServices system, which is continually recognized as one of the most convenient and easy-to-use infotainment programs on the market.

UVO eServices: Creating a New In-Car Standard

Wyatt Snoddgrass of McGrath Kia Helps Explain Kia’s UVO eServices system:

Available in Kia vehicles right now, the advanced UVO eServices system will help drivers have a smooth, hassle-free driving experience.

This system is setting the bar for in-car technology and convenience, and drivers can expect to see many other companies attempt to replicate Kia’s lead, both in technology and design.

UVO eServicesObviously, we’re a little biased towards Kia cars and the UVO system, so take a look at what a couple of the most popular automotive and technology publications are saying:

“Overall, UVO eServices’ Google integration seems really solid. It’s helpful being able to search for destinations using your phone or via the web before you even get inside your car. Not only is it faster and more efficient, but it’s probably a lot safer than whipping out your phone while driving.”

– Amir Iliaifar of Digital Trends

“The system provides a number of handy convenience features designed to give owners a certain peace of mind for their safety and for their car’s health. We think the biggest boon here is the automatic 911 dialing, but the system’s maintenance and diagnostics features will also ensure that owners complete recommended services.”

– Andrew Ganz of Left Lane New
