Steven Tyler appeared in the 2018 Kia Stinger Super Bowl commercial. Tyler uses the Kia Stinger’s optional time traveling reverse gear to roll back the clock and psyche out Emerson Fittipaldi. Aerosmith’s frontman throws his Kia Stinger in reverse, setting off what amounts to a trip back in time that leaves him younger and wrinkle-free, greeted by screaming fans straight out of the 1970s.
However, viewers were not that impressed with the ad on social media. Some were pointing out that Tyler could pass for Johnny Depp’s father in the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
As Tyler burns rubber, viewers then see the years also burn away from Tyler’s face, setting the clock back to the 1970s, and Aerosmith fans with big hair and high-waisted denim rush the frontman, bringing a smile to his newly wrinkle-free face. Tyler’s falsetto sings “Dream On” in the background, and the words “feel youthful again” appear on screen.
“The Stinger is the dream car driving enthusiasts have been longing for,” Saad Chehab, vice president of marketing communications for Kia Motors America, said in a statement.
With 365 horsepower, the new 2018 Kia Stinger is a legend in the making. But what happens when it comes face to face with another legend: rock and roll icon Steven Tyler? Watch as Steven and the Stinger defy history in Kia’s 2018 Big Game ad.

How did #steventyler agree to that ad? Minus the tons of money. The tag line was literally: “feel something again.” Taking the obsession with youth to new levels

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League. The game is the culmination to a regular season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. Normally, Roman numerals are used to identify each game, rather than the year in which it is held. For example, Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season.
The sole exception to this naming convention tradition occurred with Super Bowl 50, which was played on February 7, 2016, following the 2015 regular season, and the following year, the nomenclature returned to Roman numerals for Super Bowl LI, following the 2016 regular season.
