Kia’s Super Bowl 2020 TV ad stars Raiders’ Josh Jacobs in fight against youth homelessness

The ad is part of Kia's campaign to raise money for charities that address the issue of homelessness among the youth.

“An ongoing tenet of Kia's Give It Everything philosophy is to give back in meaningful ways, and we at Kia both admire and identify with Josh's tenacity and determination… The all-new Seltos is a powerful addition to Kia's roster of tough and ready SUVs, and the idea behind
