Everyone has their own adventure(s) in life and so everyone obviously has their own definition of what a Hero's Journey is. All journeys, however, include a majority of the same stages; from slaying dragons, both literally and figuratively, following one's bliss and going into the belly of the beast. Before we go any further, let me explain what the Hero's Journey even is. The Hero's Journey is a series of events that Joseph Campbell studied and first identified as a journey that all people go though. The pattern of the events appears in not only works from all ends of the literary spectrum including drama and myths, but is also linked to psychological development and self-growth.

The Kia Niro 2017 Super Bowl commercial, “Hero’s Journey”, is persuading the audience to buy the most fuel efficient crossover. Kia begins the commercial with Melissa McCarthy in a eco-friendly Kia Niro. McCarthy gets a phone call in the Kia Niro about “saving the whales”. The scene then changes to her on a small one passenger boat in the ocean with a flag that says “save the whales” on it. All of a sudden, a whale hits the boats she is in, and she goes flying into the side of a large cargo ship. The second scene in the commercial focuses on saving the trees. It shows McCarthy at the top of a tall tree, putting a sign on the trees that says “save the trees”. As she kisses the tree that she is holding onto, a logger cuts down the tree she is at top of. The tree falls and McCarthy falls of the tree that falls off a cliff. The next section of the commercial focuses on “saving the icecaps”. McCarthy gets to the top of an iceberg and sticks a sign on it saying “save the icecaps”. The sign then breaks the ice cap in half, causing McCarthy to fall through the crack. She hits her back on the sharp edge of the icecap and falls into the water. The fourth section of the commercial focuses on saving the rhinos. McCarthy is shown running from a rhino holding a sign that says “Save the Rhinos”. She gets hit in the back by the rhino and gets stuck on the rhinos horn. The commercial then switches gears to the Kia Niro driving down a road. The commercial closes with the phrase “It's hard to be an eco warrior but it's easy to drive like one”.
