Super Bowl commercials allow advertising and marketing execs the opportunity to let their hair down, have a bit of fun and get silly. That’s why Audi’s ad features a mutant, CGI-animated dog, GoDaddy’s spot features a beefcake Danica Patrick and Kia has recruited Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, from the Matrix films. Hyundai, meanwhile, didn’t seem to get the memo.
It’s not that its spot is bad, but it does feel a bit boring, playing a lot like Hyundai’s non-Super Bowl advertisements – in other words, not something we’re going to be talking about next Monday around the water cooler. Called Dad’s Sixth Sense, the 30-second clip shows off the 2015 Genesis Sedan and its auto emergency braking system, after showing dad’s saving their kids from what we imagine would be fairly painful, and in some cases horrific, accidents (tackling a hot barbecue, anyone?).
We’ve got the full spot down below. Keep your eye out for it on Super Bowl Sunday.
