Doja Cat battles herself in a new Skechers Uno ad released on Friday (April 28). The commercial pits the “dueling light and dark sides of Doja’s personality” against each other in an anime-style battle.
“Building out this campaign and a new world for the Uno with my creative director Bret Alan Nelson and Skechers has been amazing,” Doja said in a statement. “This is just the start. I look forward to sharing more of what we’ve been creating soon.”
Added Nelson, “I was super inspired by the idea of the different Uno colors and which Uno gives you the most power. We reference old school anime fight scenes within a battle of ‘Doja Cat vs. Doja Cat’ and the ultimate theme is that in the end we will never follow another’s footsteps.”
Drawing inspiration from the Y2K, Cyberpunk and anime themes, the vibrant campaign features Skechers UNO sneakers in hot pink and lime green.
