It's been 16 years since Pets.com's sock puppet graced us with a starring role in a Super Bowl commercial. That didn't work out so well. But maybe it's time for another sock puppet, as modeled by Christopher Walken in the photo above, released Thursday by Kia to hype its upcoming Super Bowl spot.
Kia didn't reveal much about the 60-second commercial, from David & Goliath, which will run in the third quarter of the Feb. 7 telecast and push the 2016 Optima midsize sedan.
