Someone is having fun with GoDaddy’s withdrawn commercial…and doing it with GoDaddy services.
GoDaddy won’t run its controversial Journey Home commercial during the Super Bowl on Sunday. The ad featured a site called Gabby’s Goldens that sold dogs online. It drew the ire of pet lovers and advocates everywhere.
Yet someone is having some fun with it, and using GoDaddy’s services to boot.
GoDaddy registered GabbysGoldens.com ahead of the commercial. Another customer just registered GabbysGoldens.org and created a website using GoDaddy’s Online Store service.
At the URL gabbysgoldens.org/products/buddy-coming-soon, you can “Reserve your first choice of this litter” for $699. (The product is out of stock.)
A reviewer states:
I always like Puppy Mills!
This puppy mill has the cutest puppies! I like buying from a puppy mill since I get to choose exactly the product (I mean doggy) I want to purchase like ordering from a mail-order bride catalog where I purchased my wife from. I also recommend F&R Auto Sales if you want to start making it big in the pizza delivery business!
There’s also a corresponding Twitter account.
A GoDaddy spokesperson told AdAge that, of course, they have nothing to do with this site…and they don’t condone it.
