Here’s proof you can have controversy without nudity.
[Update: GoDaddy won’t run this ad after all.]
GoDaddy made a name for itself with controversial Super Bowl commercials.
If you thought its move from sexy commercials to one featuring a puppy dog meant the company was shying away from controversy, you’re in for a bit of a surprise.
This year’s commercial (embedded below) features an adorable puppy dog that gets tossed off a truck, yet perseveres and finds its way home. Yet “Buddy” is in for a rude surprise when he finds his way back to his owner.
Critics this year won’t be upset about half-nude models. Instead, the commercial will conjure up hate from pet lovers and organizations around the world.
Hey, at least it wasn’t an elephant.
