Kia car dunks over Blake Griffin video

One year later: revenge of the machine.

Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin catapulted over a Kia and caught an alley-oop pass to win the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. On the eve of the 2012 Slam Dunk Contest, Kia and have teamed up to produce a video riffing on the famous dunk by flipping it on its head.

This time, Griffin is the prop for the car to dunk over. 

"What's crazier than dunking on a Kia Optima? Having it dunk over me," Griffin says as the video opens. "I looked into it and it's entirely possible."

The video then cuts to a so-called "Dunkologist" and a team of scientists who designed a ramp for the car to launch over Griffin with a basketball attached to its bumper. Bla bla bla, the plan doesn't work out and we all slap our thighs in amusement (feigned or otherwise). 

Here's the video of Blake Griffin getting dunked on by a Kia via YouTube user KiaMotorsAmerica.

That was funny.  Reminds me of the bit the TNT crew did when Kenny Smith tried to jump over a car (ala Kobe) but got ran over instead.
