A Super Bowl commercial that was due to air during the halftime, that was a Godaddy.com one....has been pulled...
GoDaddy's CEO said the people had spoken, and had been heard...
It was a truly tasteless commercial...
I heard about it when my NAPPS message board lit up yesterday!
And Holy Smokes, people were totally PO'd about it!
A petition was already circulating, and I added my name to it.
Several people on NAPPS pulled their accounts immediately off of GoDaddy!
The ASPCA weighed in on it all to, along with many other organizations!
The commercial featured a Golden Retriever (Lab?) Puppy, that first falls out of the back of a truck, and basically, manages to find its way back home, where it runs to a lady in the barn, who first seems just happy to see the puppy...next shot, it shows this puppy in some kind of a van, and the woman is saying, "You're outta here!"
Yes! The People had Spoken!!
