Kia will use the Super Bowl to showcase the all-new K900 luxury sedan in a 60-second spot featuring Laurence Fishburne reprising his iconic role as Morpheus from "The Matrix" film trilogy

"The world of luxury has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth." With these words – and his signature trench coat and reflective sunglasses – Laurence Fishburne returns to the iconic role of Morpheus from The Matrix trilogy in a multiplatform marketing effort from Kia Motors America (KMA) for the all-new K900 rear-drive luxury sedan set to premiere during the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII. Modern and elegant, the K900 signals a new era for Kia, and the campaign was conceived to cause people to question everything they think they know about the brand by showing a side of luxury they've never seen before.

Channeling the films' exploration of perception versus reality, the first element of the campaign is the 60-second Super Bowl spot in which Morpheus offers an unsuspecting couple a startling choice while waiting at an upscale restaurant's valet stand: "Take the blue key, you go back to the luxury you know. Take the red key, and you'll never look at luxury the same again."
