Skechers Cheetah Super Bowl Commercial: Ad Features Sneakers, Unlikely Animal Chase (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

If you've always felt that the only thing holding you back from chasing down a cheetah was properly weight footwear than Skechers has just the shoe for you.

In one the sneaker company's ads aired during the Super Bowl, a man laces up a pair of lightweight running shoes before chase down a fleet-footed cheetah, much to the relief of a gazelle.

After Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones motored for a 108-yard kickoff return to open the second half, one reaction (other than "Wow") was that he must have been wearing those shoes.

As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battled for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers competed for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cut away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills (or because the lights went out), another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers were unveiled (although many had been teased). At your Super Bowl party, were people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?

While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
