Despite being a bro who loves the ladies, I’ve never really enjoyed Go Daddy’s overly suggestive Super Bowl spots, because they typically lack creativity. And that doesn’t just apply to Go Daddy either, as I think that the majority of scorn dished out at Mercedes and its Super Bowl ad featuring Kate Upton stemmed from people just thinking it wasn’t very clever. That’s why I’m tipping my sweet fedora to Go Daddy today for its very simple yet considerably more ingenious ad for Super Bowl 47.
The commercial features super duper DUPER model Bar Refaeli making out with some dweeby dude, while recent divorcee (and current girlfriend of official NASCAR racer of With Leather Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.) Danica Patrick says something. I don’t know what she says because every time I’ve watched Bar make out with this geek, I’ve heaved my monitor across my office.
What I would like to know – and I’d be more than happy to interview that young man about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – is A) Did he at least try to slip her the tongue? And B) If not, did he screw up a bunch of times so they’d have to keep re-shooting the ad?
I only ask because they do a pretty great job of executing the PG-13 tongueless French kiss, so I’m hoping that the actor, Jesse Heiman (according to my bros at Larry Brown Sports), pulled a Michael Palledorous and got himself a little Wendy Peffercorn.
Otherwise, Bar does a solid job of portraying the “I don’t feel like puking face” at the end.
