Kia unleashes the Christopher Walken ‘Walken Closet’ in Super Bowl 50 teaser

South Korean auto brand Kia has revealed that Christopher Walken will be its Super Bowl 50 ambassador with a brief teaser clip.

Kia will utilise the slot to promote the 2016 Kia Optima, according to Adweek.

A 60 second slot is set to run during the third quarter of the game.

Walken will engage in some literal sock-puppetry during the slot, Kia announced.
