I get it, sex sells. I love a pretty girl as much as the next guy and if anyone that has ever hung out with me knows, I appreciate the female form. But there are limits. Godaddy has crossed them. Godaddy is by far the most popular registrar in the world and also one of my favorite but everything their company was built on was thrown out the window when they make these type of commercials. They are uncreative and boring. Built for the last 5 years on “Here’s a hot girl, go to our website to see more of her” Nothing about domaining, nothing about platform, nothing slightly funny, amusing, or informative.
I have a wandering eye and would consider myself very liberal when it comes to using hot girls to sell but I was embarrassed. Godaddy represented domainers everywhere with that junk they threw up there. The net is full of creativity and fun and Godaddy went with a bad interpretation of an Italian car commercial. Doritos did it best. They went to the web and said. “Our commercials suck, please submit your commercials and we’ll make the top 5 into real commercials” They turned out some of the best spots at the Superbowl.
There isn’t a domainer in the world that comes to their site for the pretty girls. Hell, Danica Patrick isn’t even that pretty and if I were her I would try everything she can to get out of her contract. It is ruining her image just like Godaddy is ruining theirs. Fortunately their platform is top notch. It’s a shame Bob Parsons is such a pervert.
PS If they wanted to have sex sell, they should have gone a funny sexy like this. Funny to guys, nice to look at for girls and subliminally makes us want to buy their product.
