Feature Flick: Kia’s 2012 Rio Treks Through L.A. to Find Christina Milian

Geocaching is an activity that pairs scavenger hunts with GPS devices, and geocachers usually find little toys or trinkets at the end of each hunt. Today’s Feature Flick has a pair of 2012 Kia Rios and a scavenger hunt, but the prize wasn’t a toy–it was a meet and greet with pop star Christina Milian.
The video is three minutes and 17 seconds of subcompact Kia hijinks on the streets of Los Angeles, with competitors jumping into two brand new Kia Rio hatchbacks to drive around Hollywood and the surrounding landmarks, from Griffith Park to Rodeo Drive and Amoeba Records, the world’s largest independent record store. At the end, the contestants climbed the stairs to the penthouse at the Hotel Roosevelt, where they met up with Christina Milian for a roof-top get-together.
If you’re wondering why we’re watching Christina Milian in a video when she hasn’t had a big hit song since “Dip It Low” in 2004, she’s recently signed to rap superlabel Young Money and is reportedly working on new music. For someone who was a star when Kia sales were a fraction of what they are today, it appears the popularity tables have turned and Christina Milian is looking for a boost from the popular brand. We hope it works.
