So gross, y'all.

So gross. I am skeptical about whether this ad will actually air.

Also. I am offended at this depiction of a "smart person".

Smart people know how to not look like that.

I know it's early but I'm calling this the worst of the Super Bowl ads. What...the...f*ck! Did that rosey cheeked fat virgin win some sort of nationwide contest to make out with a model? WHY DID THEY HAVE TO PHONE IN SLURPING SOUNDS WITH A CLOSE UP. Seriously, how does this sell web hosting? How? Who sees this ad and is like, yeah Go Daddy....that conjures up good memories.

Also as a webmaster, I'm pretty pissed off at the "anyone who works on computers is a fat male nerd". Go back to 1980 with that sh*t.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Agreed on the f*cking slurping.  I didn't even see this commercial and the sound of it made me sick.

I wonder how many takes it took to get the kiss just right.  Hopefully for Nerdboy, he screwed it up a lot.  He will never have that chance again.

I hate GoDaddy ads in general because they try so hard to be edgy, but this one just made me sick. If you kiss someone and you're making slurping noises like that, you're doing it wrong. Nothing romantic about that at all.

Ugh. This one was absolutely DISGUSTING. I was watching it with my fiancee and a bunch of guys, and one other girl. This one came on and we watched it for about 5 seconds and my friend Matt goes, "This is making me really uncomfortable...." We all had to turn away or shield our eyes - and averting your eyes wasn't enough! That slurping sound - GAG ME!!! Totally disgusting. Dead
 
My other friend Kenny was saying that there is an outtake from this commercial on YouTube somewhere where it shows the model - after making out with the fat virgin - makes this awful face and tries to force a smile. Ugh.

I don't get why offending and disgusting your target audience is supposed to sell products.

Unfortunately for me, I used GoDaddy to obtain one of my domain names -- it's paid until early-2014 so now I'll hear that ├╝ber-nasty slurping noise every time I enter that website via the domain name they host. CryCryAngryCryCry

Whether or not people found it disgusting, it seems to have been a brilliant marketing strategy. EVERYONE is talking about this thing, and up until the ad, I had never heard of godaddy.com. 

It is kind of squicky, although it could have been worse. There could have been lots of tongue and ropes of saliva everywhere Dead

Re: noisy kissing - it's amazing how disgusting it is to see/hear other people doing it, compared with actually doing it yourself. I've been with someone who was incredibly noisy and slobbery and it was oddly quite enjoyable Embarrassed

It does make sense from a "word of mouth" perspective, but what about the appeal?  It sure as heck doesn't make me want to go to godaddy.com and learn more about their company. Dead

The success of a marketing technique isn't just based on whether or not people are talking about the product - but also how much it draws people to the product and encourages them to spend their money on it. I would say this one is a HUGE fail. I would NEVER have my web domain hosted by GoDaddy.com because I HATE their commercials and I find their commercials to be very unprofessional and totally random. Not someone I would want handling my website. So, everyone may be talking about it - but I doubt this commercial made people spend their money with GoDaddy.

Very valid points. For the very same reason I refuse to buy Folgers coffee (the incest ad!) Cox service bundles, or Progressive insurance. However . . .

What if the target audience IS the fat nerdy geek? Or guys who live in their Moms' basements who like to think they're as smart as that guy and want to snag their WoW character's name as a domain? Hmm? Wink

Note: I am not that guy. I'm quite female and do not play WoW or live in a basement. But I know enough of them Confused

I'm sure this type of advertising works on a certain type.  Good point.

I don't mind the kissing, but the smacking, slurping, gurgling-like sounds did it for me.  But what's funny is that for a while now, I have been getting more and more tired of seeing make-out sessions on TV and movies and they get almost this loud.  As my Mother would say, "Sounds like a cow pulling its foot out of the mud."  Now, I know people are not usually quiet about it but sometimes I just know they tell the actors to be louder and it just is awful.  Sounds like someone trying to Hoover someone else's face off, or a guy has half of a woman's face in his mouth. Sheeesh!

Highlighting the keyword here. As I've mentioned here before, teenage boys are the only ones who find these ads cool or edgy. Until they see their first nudie magazine...
