I don't know what Godaddy is going for in their advertising, but it's really odd. For those who might not know, Godaddy is a site where you register domain names (anything.com). Their advertising typically features scantily clad women, and a visit to their site has founder Bob Parsons set up as some sort of an amalgamation of Larry Flynt and Hugh Heffner. Really strange stuff.
I just saw the following Super Bowl commercial on the Godaddy site. It was douche chill inducing, to say the least. First of all, the premise is just entirely deliberate, dull-edged, and ham handed. It goes on and on with the joke, failing to observe any sense of comedic timing. Adding insult to insult are Danica Patrick's reaction shots, all of which are mind numbingly embarrassing.
Godaddy needs to understand that the era of "tease TV" is over. It's 2010. For no charge, I can turn on my computer and see HD videos of 3rd-world prostitutes passing bowel movements into the mouths of their colleagues. Danica Patrick getting a massage from some broad next to the pool is hardly what I call interesting. Sorry, I know... I'm ruined.
Anyway, this is just an awful, awful commercial:
