      Good for Kia! And presenting unicycles as "a bit more adventurous" is great for our image.

      Now we can start wondering what's holding those unicycles up...

          hm. you can tell its not the same uni twice duee to the location of the stem, but i dont think the unis were actually n the car, because they are just kinda resting on the roof. not even connected

            i think what the advert is trying to say is the car drives so smoothly that it can have such an unbalanced machine on top without anything to hold it on

              It's a kind of magic....

              but anyway it's nice to see uni in an ad

                One of the advantages of unicycles over those other vehicles is that unicycles easily fit inside the car.

                      Saw that ad earlier for the first time and did a double take "hang on that's a uni..."

                      Wonder how many non-unicyclists actually notice?

                        There's a thread about this on the UUU forum. UDC UK was asked about it and Kia apparently thought the mountain unicycles were too expensive for the advert...
                        It's a car advert!

                        Not sure why they couldn't borrow some...

                          As is my "other" car. My other car is a unicycle.

                          The way it tends to work in the ad industry:
                          - Kia doesn't make ads, they make cars
                          - Ad agency may or may not be Kia's "main" one
                          - Their idea to use unicycles on top of the car is an experiment; if they buy one it may not end up getting used (so they went cheap)
                          - With luck, the oddball ad with the unicycles will go public! Yaay!

                          I definitely think it's one unicycle, and I'm not even sure if it was on top of the car during shooting, or was added in post-production. Then they played around with the positioning of the copy until it looked the way they wanted.

                            possibly one uni but I think it's two different photos, or else they went to some effort to make it look that way. The valve is in two different spots on the rim, and the spoke pattern doesn't line up with the pedals the same way between them. Otherwise they look the same to me, specifically the pedals seem to be oriented almost exactly the same way.

                            This is so irrelevant, but I find it interesting.

                              According to Rachael on thr UUU forum (from UDC UK) it is 2 unicycles. Perhaps they should have just bought one. Then they could have afforded a decent looking MUni
