Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Melissa McCarthy is an eco-warrior attempting to save the planet in Kia's upcoming Super Bowl ad.

The comedic commercial, released by the car brand Wednesday, features the actress driving a Kia Niro as she receives calls to protest and help save wildlife from around the world.

McCarthy soon finds out that saving the planet is no easy task as a whale sends her flying into a boat, a tall tree she is strapped to is cut down, a polar ice cap melts between her feet and a rhino charges at her horn first.

"It's hard to be an eco-warrior, but it's easy to drive like one," the spot's voiceover announces.

The ad will air during Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5.
