GoDaddy.com CEO Bob Parsons reports that the NFL pressured FOX to can the second running of the GoDaddy.com ad during the Super Bowl telecast.
As you may have noticed our Super Bowl ad only appeared during the scheduled first quarter spot. It was scheduled to run also in the second ad position during the final two minute warning. Our ad never ran a second time. Instead, in its place, we saw an advertisement promoting “The Simpsons.”
The NFL persuaded FOX to pull our ad.
We immediately contacted Fox to find out what happened. Here’s what we were told: After our first ad was aired, the NFL became upset and they, together with Fox, decided to pull the ad from running a second time. Because we purchased two spots, we were also entitled to a “Brought to you by GoDaddy.com” 5 second marquis spot. They also chose to pull the marquis spot.Apparently a hot chick in a tank top is now too risque for the Super Bowl, though cleavage shots of an Eagles cheerleader (For TiVo’ers that’s 3:04 into the game recording with 7:52 to play in the 3rd quarter) is fine…

Go see GoDaddy’s Super Bowl ad!
Update: In case you’re wondering who the female in the ad is, it’s WWE diva Candace Michelle. Not safe for work pictures of her here
i think the commercial was ok and there was barely any pornographic images.
anyways guys like me enjoy to see hot chicks and could use a nice comeercial like this one.
peace im out
Tomoroww Bob Parsons from GoDaddy will be on Fox the Xfactor…that should be intresting, lets see how “fair and balanced” works with this
The website you guys are asking about is http://www.GoDaddyGirls.com it is not connected to GoDaddy but the Name per whois was registered there, it looks like GoDaddy is not Censoring the domains
You know our site is getting better and we have new pics on the way…how do you like our site.
http://www.godaddygirls.com, godaddygirls in not a part of godaddy.com we do use them for domain reg. and other services. If they were going to censor there stuff they would not of sold the domain for our NEWS site.
The fact that this got pulled is ridiculous. If they had an ugly flat chested girl in a tank top and jeans the ad would not be controversial or pulled. Whats next, mandatory one pieces at the beach. All the people that find silly things like this offensive, get a life!!!!
We are all created thru sex, babies nurse off a boob, but if you show those 2 things soceity gets in a upror…Silly?????
We are all created thru sex, babies nurse off a boob, but if you show those 2 things soceity gets in a uproar…Silly????? I think so!!!!
This entire situation is pathetic.
If we find nudity on television wrong we should get a life, as the person a few threads above states? And what would that life be? Watching naked woman? Jeez. You should get a life.
Oh, and violence is a completely different matter than nudity. Have you ever pricked your finger and thought “Crud, I just mooned society”?
You know, one of the reasons that nudity in public has been banned by the government is the effect is has on men and woman. Want to know what it is? Read psychology.
Oh, and for the idiot at the top who mentions that we “see nudity every day when we take a lead, we even see it in the shower,” I have one thing to say. An ad like godaddy.com’s ad is meant to have a sexual influence on men. If you’re being arroused by seeing yourself naked in the shower, then you seriously have problems.
By the way, don’t bother responding. I’m not hanging around this thread.
