In the latest campaign, Built For Whoever You Are, created by David&Goliath, Kia launches the all-new 2023 Kia Soul in collaboration with DASK, a collection of NFTs as iconic as the Soul they're driving in. The creative supports a modern twist with a QR code embedded in the :30 hero spot. Powered by the Sweet NFT platform, when viewers scan the code with a smartphone, they can easily obtain one of 10,100 Kia-themed NFTs that will be seamlessly deposited and stored in their own Sweet blockchain wallet. “From the outset, my intention was to create empathy in the DASK NFT characters, fully bringing them to life. Showing them having fun together, showing skeletons having a Soul! Creating this playful story has been a thrilling journey with David&Goliath and our partners at KEVIN. I am thankful for the great team we had on this one."
