I'll tell you the commercial they'd like to do, if they could, and I guarantee you, if they could, they'd do this, right here. Here's the woman's face, beautiful. Camera pulls back, naked breast. Camera pulls back, she's totally naked. Legs apart. Two fingers, right here, and it just says, "Drink Coke." Now I don't know the connection here, but goddamn if Coke isn't on my shopping list that week.

"Bar Refaeli is  the quintessential Sports Illustrated model. That's what everyone says. The embodiment of her superiority to us: beautiful, exotic, highly sexual and yet unavailable to everyone but the likes of Leo DiCaprio. Sh*te. Let's face it: if she'd snog one fat bastard in a Go Daddy ad, she'd shag the f*cking lot of us."

You sound like you understand advertising perfectly. Godaddy is a company. They have made many big money super bowl ads in the past and they are still around so I think their bean counters know which way the wind is blowing on whether or not their ads have been worth the expense.

I'm all for nastiness on TV.  I don't care about nakedness.  Hell, bring on full penetration.  As long as it's rated appropriately, then it's all fine, and that includes the commercial content.   But here's the thing:  The super bowl is rated TV-PG.  That guidance is:

This program contains material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. Many parents may want to watch it with their younger children. The theme itself may call for parental guidance and/or the program may contain one or more of the following: some suggestive dialogue (D), infrequent coarse language (L), some sexual situations (S), or moderate violence (V).

We can talk about how prudish the FCC is, and there are plenty of examples of it.  But this is not one of them.  It's damned straight that it required parental guidance.  I needed to provide context for my 6 and 8 year old on that commercial and a good amount of others (pole dancing, etc).  If it got much racier than it was, then I would have just recorded it and let them watch while fast-forwarding through the commercials.
 
2013-02-05 04:18:40 PM
Ok so here's a question...

I found this ad mildly upsetting/uncomfortable. I didn't throw up or anything, but I definitely found a pained look on my face after it was done.

I don't care that the dorky dude made out with the the hot chick. It was just watching them make out for 5 minutes (seemed like) that kinda grossed me out. And I thought about it and decided watching people seriously make out is just kinda gross and I don't like watching it.

But then it occurred to me I've watched and "enjoyed" a lot uglier people doing a lot nastier things on line and found them perfectly arousing. So what is so gross about watching people make out that it makes people recoil but hey, sticking it in her butt is just good wank material? What's up with that?

I don't have the answer. Just what I thought about after that commercial...how come them making out is kinda gross but 3 midgets, a donkey and a pre-op tranny is 90 seconds of fap?

Especially since what he fails to realize is that this particular commercial is not meant to make you want to buy GoDaddy's services right now. Instead, GoDaddy gets ingrained in your head, and the next time a discussion comes up about domain name registration and website hosting, you're going to remember the name, even if you don't remember the commercial. Even moreso, if you can't get the commercial OUT of your head (either because it was so good or so horrifying is completely irrelevant) then the ad spot did what it was supposed to and forced you to remember GoDaddy's name.

Quick; without using Google or any other search engine, tell me the name of another Domain name registration company?

Go Daddy's ads are all about brand recognition.  They might not get an instant spike in sales from the ad, but if someone is thinking of registering a website domain, the Go Daddy name is often the first one on their mind.  The fact that people keep talking about the ad, and that it gets tons of free publicity by being shared and replayed on websites like Fark, or by news organizations that want to say how terrible it is, means that the Go Daddy ads are very effective.  They serve their intended purpose, which is to increase brand recognition.

This longer, "unrated" edition was actually easier to watch than the first one.  They cut the slurping kissing noises down and covered them with the Go Daddy jingle.  I guess showing French kissing is too much for network censors.

I suspect Deutsch NY never submitted that version of the ad, and this is a way to get more viewers.  It was 49 seconds long, and you buy 30 second blocks.

At any rate, is it completely unreasonable to call either version of the ad an "intense sexual situation"?  If not, what is required for an "intense sexual situation"?

Success is getting people to remember you is not always good. While GoDaddy may be the only one many people can name, their ads have indeed turned off many potential customers. When I was looking for webhosting, the one company I refused to consider was GoDaddy, precisely because I disliked their advertising strategy (I like hot women as much as any other straight male, but their advertising exists ONLY to gain name recognition...  you don't know shiat about anything else about them from their ads, and even though I like hot women I do not like that kind of blatant pandering).

Ads are only truly successful if they drive business. I don't give a damn how many people TALK about the ad or my company. I care about how that talk translates into actual money spent on my product.

However, I do think the GoDaddy ads have been successful. They've been at this for how long now? If they didn't see a business boost from nothing other than sexist objectification of women* in their ads, they'd sure as hell have packed it in by now and done something else.

*Damn, I hated writing that phrase but it's sure accurate to describe their ads.

"Bar Refaeli is  the quintessential Sports Illustrated model. That's what everyone says. The embodiment of her superiority to us: beautiful, exotic, highly sexual and yet unavailable to everyone but the likes of Leo DiCaprio. Sh*te. Let's face it: if she'd snog one fat bastard in a Go Daddy ad, she'd shag the f*cking lot of us."


I've just got to point out that quote was from Sick Boy, not Renton.

Meh, I use GoDaddy to register domains and get SSL certs.  Cheap.
 
2013-02-05 05:47:01 PM
Yeah, gross sounds, weird commercial, but if you ask Jane Q. Middle America what company she should register a domain name through, GoDaddy is probably the only one she knows.
 
2013-02-05 05:58:50 PM
As a mental experiment, imagine it was Ryan Gosling or [insert other attractive male celebrity] with the same noises. The noise still isn't very pleasant but is the gut reaction at the same level of disgust? Would you even call it disgust at that point?

Whatever they paid that girl, it wasn't enough.

Celerian: GoDaddy gets ingrained in your head, and the next time a discussion comes up about domain name registration and website hosting, you're going to remember the name, even if you don't remember the commercial. Even moreso, if you can't get the commercial OUT of your head (either because it was so good or so horrifying is completely irrelevant) then the ad spot did what it was supposed to and forced you to remember GoDaddy's name.


Except now GoDaddy = Gross. If GoDaddy's goal was just to get their name out there, then they succeeded.  If they intended people who watched that commercial to give them money, they failed miserably. I doubt it was the former because their name is already out there extensively.

I've got to imagine, even as a fat bastard, that this would lose it's appeal really quickly.  Kissing is nice and all, but after a few minutes it needs to lead to other things.  Hours and hours of tonsil hockey with no satisfaction would get gross and chore-like no matter who the partner.

douchebag/hater: RocketRay: It's a very effective ad.  We're still talking about it.

Ah no.

The ad is effective if people start using GoDaddy more; i.e. a spike/increase in business.
No increase in business means the ad fails.
Talking about an ad is the same as an ad being effective.


Oh. That's how it works.

I mean. It works.

2013-02-05 09:44:34 PM
It would be interesting to get an honest appraisal of how well the ad worked. If you are looking to register a domain name, and you aren't very knowledgeable about the internet, Go Daddy is probably the only name you remember. Most of their commercials are stupid, and sexist, but it gets their name planted in people's minds. It may take a few months to really judge, but I wonder if the number of new clients rise, fall, or stay about the same starting from last Sunday. Are these sort of things independently monitored by a trade organization or a regulatory branch so we can somewhat trust the answer?

Steve Zodiac: I wonder if the number of new clients rise, fall, or stay about the same starting from last Sunday.


So does GoDaddy. It's not a matter of trusting the numbers, it's a matter of generating numbers in the first place. There are many things affecting their business and this sort of top-of-mind ad has a potentially very long impact period, making it all but impossible to measure in any objective way.

I'll tell you the commercial they'd like to do, if they could, and I guarantee you, if they could, they'd do this, right here. Here's the woman's face, beautiful. Camera pulls back, naked breast. Camera pulls back, she's totally naked. Legs apart. Two fingers, right here, and it just says, "Drink Coke." Now I don't know the connection here, but goddamn if Coke isn't on my shopping list that week.


I've used this joke more than once in reference to this commercial.
 
2013-02-06 08:19:33 AM
I have just found out that Fark is about 80% full of jealous bastards. Why not be happy for the guy? He's sucking face with a hot broad, and the best most of you Farkers will be able to do is print a pic of the whore, lay it on the table, and have yourself a tribute. Then you'll probably kiss it afterword, and twitter all your friends to tell them how we her lips are.
 
2013-02-06 08:24:40 AM
Any of you Farkers complaining about the noise, are really turned on by it, and don't want anyone to know, just like that boner you had in 5th grade from checking out Mrs. Miller in all her grandma glory, when she called you to the board to work out a math problem.

That is not at all true.

Ads are also there to MAINTAIN market position. If the only success were an increase, barely any ads would be successful.

The marketing research question would be, "Which company or companies do you think of when you think of domain name registration?"

I hate marketing and marketing research, but you're still wrong.

Yes, but if people think of you but never give you their business, that is not only not new customers, but you can't even maintain your position if people are turned off by your ads.

In GoDaddy's case, their ads apparently work- I heard on the radio this morning that they've pulled down 10K new customers since the ad aired. They're ecstatic over the performance of the ad.

Which means they'll keep on doing this kind of thing. Dammit. People are morons.

Depends.  what is their new customer signup for an average week?

Also considering that it costs as little as $6 to register a new domain for a year, then, well, it doesn't make it a good investment.

All ad campaigns are portrayed as successful until it's time to fire the agency.

[Insert applicable reference to Jaws Indianapolis speech about Bar's eyes], but it wasn't so much the noises made but the sheer, unmitigated revulsion on her face the scant second before they locked lips.  It's the look on the face of the starlet who heard "this scene won't have a facial" from the casting agent the few seconds before she looks like an extra from a Three Stooges pie-throwing scene.  Maybe the kid had dragon breath, maybe he tried too hard on the other 44 takes.  Maybe she had to drop a deuce and they wouldn't let her.  In any case, the sheer fembot pose and disgusted look ruined the commercial even before the noises.

Call the kid lucky all you want, call it a simple grab with the gross-out (note: Even Stephen King admitted he'd stoop to the gross-out if he can't scare people - one does what one must), but the perfect fusion of looks and nerdy isn't what I saw on the screen.  It was just uncomfortable.

True, but GoDaddy has been using this kind of advertising since they popped on the scene. If it wasn't working for them they'd have stopped long before now. It drives away some folks (like me), but it apparently attracts a bunch more.

I posted at a website he was part of when he was just getting into showbiz. They gave him a hard time but he never let it bother him. The main purpose of the site was to go as a group to other websites & troll. FARK should try the occasional trolling roadtrip. It can prove very entertaining when there is a coordinated effort.

Go Daddy has painted themselves into a corner.  If they don't drop millions of dollars every January, people will think the company is insolvent and won't register with them.

But they're losing share.  They may claim 10k new customers, and that's fine, but they've been losing domains at the rate of over 10,000 per day since December of last year.

http://www.webhosting.info/registrars/reports/gain_loss/GODADDY.COM/


But even if this campaign is truly successful, there will come a time pretty soon when GoDaddy will regret it.  The total addressable registrar market is about $3B of which they have a very impressive 33% share (about $1B in yearly revenue).   That's actually a pretty small market.

You grow in IT by leveraging your customer base to move into adjacent markets.  IT services to small/medium businesses, for example, is about $19B yearly.  I might consider registering a domain with GoDaddy, since it's cheap and I might not know about the alternatives.  But I doubt too many people would outsource email services, collaboration and document management, supply chain management, etc to them.  For most companies in the registration business, the actual domain registration is a loss leader that allows a foot in the door for those sectors.  Not so for Go Daddy.
