WWE Hall of Famer Mr. T will be appearing in a new ad campaign for Skechers.

On Monday, Skechers announced that Mr. T will be part of the brand’s latest campaign. You can check out the official announcement below:

Mr. T Is the Only ‘T’ in Skechers
For more than three decades, Skechers has been spelled the same way…without a ‘t’. Now for the first time ever, there really is a ‘t’ in Skechers…Mr. T. The A-Team legend showcases himself wearing styles across the Skechers product range in a campaign that makes light of a common misconception about how to spell the global brand’s name, which has been unchanged since Skechers was founded in 1992

“The people have spoken and it’s about time there was a ‘t’ in Skechers,” said Mr. T. “I pity the fool who doesn’t see how easy I find my way into every comfortable pair!”

“The letter ‘t’ has never been part of our name but sometimes computers and voice-to-text apps autocorrect it the wrong way,” added Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Not that we are considering changing the spelling of our name, but it would have been foolish to say no to Mr. T – the only ‘t’ that belongs in Skechers.”

Mr. T is an actor, former wrestler and television personality known for his signature gold chains, mohawk and distinctive nickname. He began his career as a celebrity bodyguard and bouncer before breaking into film in the role of rival Clubber Lang in Rocky III. Since then, he’s appeared in multiple films and television series including the animated Mister T and his most memorable role as Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus in the hit series, The A-Team.

The complete range of Skechers footwear is available in Skechers retail stores as well as at, plus department stores and footwear retailers around the globe.

Jimmy Hart composed several theme songs for a bunch of WCW stars back in the day, and he recently noted that the old themes are just ‘in limbo.’

On a recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Hart stated that WWE acquired the rights to the songs following the purchase of WCW in 2001, and those tracks have been left buried due to issues with ownership.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On still earning royalties on the songs: “We do. The thing too, it’s like here’s what’s so strange … when we [him and Hogan] went to WCW, I did a lot of the music. Eric Bischoff signed us to be part of the music too… All those songs, when WWE bought the tapes to all that, they re-dubbed other incidental songs on that. They never used any of those songs that we wrote when they put those tapes out.”

On WWE not doing anything with the songs: “All those songs, people ask me about ’em all the time. So they’re just kinda sitting in domain down there … they’re just all kinda in limbo down there.”

Hart then rattled off a handful of other wrestlers he did music for at the time, including the Nitro Girls, Jeff Jarrett, and Eddie Guerrero. But when WWE purchased WCW in 2001, all those songs came with them, and to this date, they’ve still found no use for them “due to some ownership issues.”
