Super Bowl commercials are beginning to appear and I’ve somehow managed to miss most of them. (As an advertising major in college, I always find them interesting.)
This one that I did see made me as unhappy as the thousands of people who wrote and tweeted to GoDaddy that the commercial was heartless and cruel. GoDaddy announced a day later they were pulling the ad and said a new and better one would appear during the Super Bowl.
Some sources are now floating the theory that the tasteless puppy commercial was a stunt to get attention and build anticipation for the next ad. Maybe. But angering America’s pet owners is a mighty big risk to take …
The red banner at the top of the video refers to the Budweiser commercial that inspired this one. Budweiser ads always get a big thumbs up from me. But this GoDaddy ad is enough to make me consider taking my one measly little account elsewhere.
