With the Super Bowl this weekend everyone is so excited to see the commercials because that’s what most people tune in to watch anyway.
GoDaddy.com, a privately held Internet domain registrar and web hosting company is pretty famous for their racy Super Bowl ads. Well this year, they have a commercial that sparked a lot of controversy.
Instead of featuring a woman this year, their ad features a cute puppy. It’s about a puppy that is lost and can’t find its family. The commercial shows the puppy going through a rough time finding its way home. When the puppy finally gets home the owners are so excited to see it because they just sold the puppy online from a website built using GoDaddy.
Don’t worry, you won’t be seeing the commercial during the Super Bowl because GoDaddy pulled the commercial. They issued a statement saying, “This morning we previewed GoDaddy’s Super Bowl spot on a popular talk show, and shortly after a controversy started to swirl about Buddy, our puppy, being sold online. The responses were emotional and direct. Many people urged us not to run the ad.”
Why It’s Hot:
Commercials are one of the main reasons why people watch the Super Bowl. This is important because it shows how fast people turn to social media to express their concerns.
