Pulling the ’ole Superman trick, eh?

We’re just a few days away from the Big Game, and the commercials are coming at us fast and furious. Earlier this week, we got a preview of Kia’s spot with a 30-second clip that showed a pair of Stingers lined up on an old, abandoned race track. Leaning up against one of the high-powered four-doors was Formula One and Indy 500 champ Emerson Fittipaldi, while inside the cabin of the other was a mystery celebrity sporting a big silver ring and two-tone nail polish. We speculated that the finger belonged to none other than Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, which turned out to be spot on.

In this new one-minute, 14-second update, Tyler slams the Stinger into reverse and performs a big smokey burnout. He continues to accelerate, lapping the abandoned race track faster and faster, until suddenly, he’s transported back the ’70s, complete with screaming bell-bottomed fans and a rejuvenated Tyler. It’s the classic Superman spin-back-in-time trick, and certainly speaks to the Stinger’s impressive power potential.

Look for the full 60-second ad spot to air in the third quarter of Super Bowl 52. Check out this latest update below.

As a reminder, the Kia Stinger GT is equipped with a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 engine producing upwards of 365 horsepower. 60 mph arrives in 4.5 seconds.
