Talk about a rough year for Kim Kardashian. Sure, she still makes a gajillion dollars to seemingly do nothing and look good, but she’s had a year of break-ups, the latest coming with Skechers.
According to Yahoo, Kardashian has been replaced by the sneaker company one year after turning heads in a sultry Super Bowl commercial. Her replacement, however, may be a surprise. According to the report, Kardashian will be replaced by a French bulldog.
“Kim got us more attention than we ever dreamed,” Leonard Armato, president of Skechers Fitness, said. “We have to establish Skechers as more than a lifestyle company.”
Of course, Skechers didn’t necessarily opt for a bulldog over Kardashian. The reality TV star’s contract with the company expired when 2011 ended.
According to USA Today, this year’s Skechers spot (which will not be cheap) will feature a bulldog wearing a pair of Skechers and racing a pack of greyhounds. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also makes an appearance, presumably because he needs the money.
Anyway, this seems like a perfect time to show you what Skechers is moving on from. Here you go.
