Melissa McCarthy's efforts to save the planet don't go over so well (for her, at least) in a new Super Bowl ad from Kia. The spot, which USA Today reports is promoting Kia's eco-friendly 2017 Niro crossover, features McCarthy trying to save the whales, the trees, the ice caps, and the rhinos, which is easier said than done when said rhinos are chasing you down and lumberjacks are cutting down the tree in which you've taken up residence. Kia's tagline for the ad? "It's hard to be an eco-warrior, but it's easy to drive like one." (More Super Bowl ads stories.)
