It's been a while—probably going back to Kodak's dual-cyclops dog—since we've seen a good mutated animal in advertising. Converse gives us a whole host of them—a lion-gerbil, a dog-boy, a sheep-cat and others—in a new Web and wild-postings campaign by (fittingly enough) ad agency Anomaly. The ads send you to ConverseOne.com, where you can customize your shoes (though not any animals) by mixing and matching parts. The Skittles sheep-boys should try to get in on this action. Customized sneakers are getting to be a big deal, with help from Melanie Oudin, who famously made her own pink-and-yellow Adidas sneakers for the U.S. Open.
