Sock Monkey in Super Bowl Commercial

By Rachel Choi – 12 Comments

This is so cute! Did you see the Kia commercial during the 2010 Super Bowl? Kia, if you’re familiar with their ads, always have things (not people) driving the cars. Well take a look at the commercial for yourself, there is a sock money that is knitted (unfortunately not crocheted). The best part is when the monkey is getting a tattoo and it’s being stitched on!

What do you think?

    I love the commercial! My grand-girlies, Emma and Sophie, are into YoGabbaGabba bigtime and I can imagine how excited they get when they see this commercial. I agree, the sock monkey’s stitched tattoo is hilarious.

    I made Muno and Brobee for Emma’s Christmas last year. They often have tea.

  5. I love it! Thanks for making me smile.

    The minute I saw the commercial, I put a sock monkey on ebay and offered to tattoo it. I had no idea of how I would duplicate it, but I thought I would try. My ad must have been shared with others because I had over 150 hits. The monkey only went for just over $20. I was able to offer 2 second offers. One person wants a tattoo like on the commercial. THAT was when I really looked at the commercial and noticed it was KNITTED! I am not a knitter but thanks to a google search I found a simple knitting pattern that works up to be the right size. I haven’t added lettering yet, but it is going to be cute! I think I might try to crochet one with thread because knitting made my middle finger go numb and then tingle in what little time I did it!
    By the way, the lady that won my auction wants a tattoo of the breast cancer ribbon on the right waist of the monkey where she has hers. She has been over 5 years cancer free so this will be a neat project. Might be able to crochet a pink ribbon. I’ll keep you posted.

    The picture isn’t coming through, Rachel. Just a blank square.

    The first time through, I got the blank square also. Then I hit the play button and the picture showed up. By the way, Rachel, is the headline “Sock MONEY in Super bowl” a fraudian slip?

  10. I’m an old lady as far as the sock monkey I have four old ones from the sixty’s but have been thinking about doing one with either crochet or knit. Mine were made with the old work sock.
    Both colors the brown and the bluegray.
