GoDaddy pulls Super Bowl ad

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.

The responses were emotional and direct. Many people urged us not to run the ad.”
