Rincewind53: I don't get the horror this ad seems to have produced.

OH NO. A less attractive male is making out with a very attractive female! THAT'S LIKE TEH MOSTEST DISGUSITING THANG EVAR.


Actually, it was the noises.  The noises kind of are what sent it over the cliff for me.

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.

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 not the same as an ad being effective.


Except it keeps the name GoDaddy! out there. While it may not be as effective here on Fark and certain other websites full of techies who know how bad Go Daddy is as a company but to people like my parents (who, by the way own their own business) I guarantee it is the only webhosting company they know of by name and it's ads are the reason. They have been effective. Think about it, how many other webhosting companies sponsor NASCAR and can afford Superbowl commercials?

No. It would be a very effective ad if we were still talking about the company that ran it or the product it was for. I know it's a popular belief, but it simply isn't true that merely getting people to talk about your ad is "effective".

As others stated, it was the noises that grossed me out. I can't stand loud food eating/slupping noises either. And how many ugly nerds did they audition I wonder?  And Danica Patrick's carrer continues to slide.

Rickj: 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"?

This f**ker can now say that is his second-best claim to fame. And his first - you know, having millions and millions of witnesses to him making out with a famous supermodel - is pretty damn good.

This. The ad satisfied GoDaddy's goal - to get folks talking about GoDaddy again. Any publicity is good publicity when your ad revenue is based on views & clicks.

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.

Yeah, the advertising agency "did their job."

That's the problem: their job is doing the WRONG THING for their clients. I don't mean just this ad, I mean the vast majority of television ads anymore.

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?

They have been effective. Think about it, how many other webhosting companies sponsor NASCAR and can afford Superbowl commercials?


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.

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.
