Skechers, Super Bowl
Following in the footsteps of an adorable French Bulldog named Mr. Quiggly that wore Skechers GOrun footwear during last year's Super Bowl, SKECHERS USA, Inc. released the first commercial for Skechers GOrun 2 performance footwear, which will premiere on TV during SUPER BOWL XLVII. Fans can now get a sneak peek of the ad ahead of the 100-million-strong audience for Sunday's game.
This year, a fast cat is center stage in a spot that again uses humor and animals to illustrate the speed of Skechers GOrun 2 performance running footwear. The ad is slated to air after the two-minute warning of the first half. (Watch now at http://youtube.com/skechersperformance)
A brief teaser for the Skechers GOrun 2 ad was released on YouTube last week, generating early buzz with nearly 300,000 views. And on Wednesday, Bleacher Report placed the ad at No. 2 in its "Super Bowl Commercials: 2013 Power Ranking." SKECHERS continues to leverage the power of social media with a Facebook sweepstakes tied to the campaign that promotes both the ad and Skechers Performance product.
The 2013 Super Bowl campaign, which also includes a Joe Montana SKECHERS Relaxed Fit ad, marks SKECHERS' fourth consecutive year of commercials on the world's biggest advertising platform. In 2010, the Company first utilized the star power of Joe Montana to launch its fitness division, and then followed up in 2011 with Kim Kardashian in the Company's fitness footwear. Basketball and business icon Mark Cuban joined the adorable Mr. Quiggly in 2012 for SKECHERS' most successful Super Bowl campaign thus far-ranking third on the USA Today Ad Meter.
