The Underdog
Move over, Kim Kardashian, because there's a new dog in town.

Kardashian starred in a salacious Skechers ad for last year's Super Bowl. But for this year's ad, the reality TV star has been replaced by a French bulldog named Mr. Quiggly.

Being a dog does have certain advantages, at least from a Skechers perspective. Because unlike Kim, Mr. Quiggly can wear two pairs of shoes.

Mr. Quiggly will share the screen with Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks. (That's basketball, folks, not football.) Skechers believes that the little dog has enough star power to steal the spotlight.
