The Skechers Super Bowl 2012 Ad has already raised controversy early on as it involves racing greyhound dogs. Animal rights groups are against greyhound dog races as the dogs are supposedly not treated well. Indeed the first comments on the just released Skechers Super Bowl 2012 Ad teasers are criticizing Skechers for "promoting" greyhound racing. Skechers PR will have some work ahead. Maybe they should have stuck with Kim Kardashian after all.
The main star in the Skechers Super Bowl 2012 Ad though is Mr. Quiggly. Mr. Quiggly is a tiny French Bulldog wearing Skechers GOrun shoes. Apparently he is going to race Greyhound dogs for the win.
Watch the 15 second teaser of the 2012 Skechers Super Bowl 2012 Ad below. The teaser doesn't reveal too much. Also Mark Cuban is not shown yet.
The Super Bowl 2012 is taking place in Indianapolis on February 5th, 2012. Just like last year, I4U News will again be featuring the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2012 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the game. Watch the first 2012 Super Bowl Ads in our Super Bowl Ad Video Gallery.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
