People I Want to Punch in the Throat: Gomer Hates GoDaddy

FB

Gomer Hates GoDaddy

Did you watch the Super Bowl Sunday night? Usually the Hubs and I watch the game together. Not because we're big football fans, but because we enjoy the commercials. This year I got a pass, because Gomer was finally old enough to stay up and do some father/son bonding with the Hubs. I sent them to the basement and I curled up with a book. Bliss!

The next day I asked Gomer if he had a favorite commercial. Instead of telling me which one he loved, he told me which one he hated.

"GoDaddy. Yuck," he said. (If you haven't seen it, watch below.)



"Yuck?" I asked. "Why?"

"There was a beauty and a brains and they were eating each other's faces. It was gross!"

"Beauty and brains?"

"Yeah, there was a pretty girl who was the beauty. And then this other guy . . . who was . . . uh . . . he was all red and splotchy. They were trying to eat each other."

"Ewww," I said.

"I know! And their tongues! Mom, they almost touched."

May he never grow up.

That was a pretty fucking gross commercial. But they are getting plenty of attention from it so I guess they exceeded in getting noticed. It wasn't even the kiss that was so awful but the SLURPING sounds were what make me want to puke.

Jenny said...

It was a seriously foul commercial. The close up made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Joy said...

HAHAHAHA... the fact that he called it "trying to eat each other" has me cracked up! But, I'm with him, it was the yuckiest commercial of the night!

Gomer is a smart kid! And he ad was gross! We had 4 generations watching it and it was unanimous! His comment reminds me of something funny! I was breast feeding my daughter( in the privacy of my own home!) and my step- grandson came in. He was 4 at the time. He asked, " Why is she biting you?!" I just laughed! I really don't remember my reply!

Pam said...

Hey, at least they didn't show the version that involved the touching tongues....

All I could think was, "This is televised prostitution!".

Hands down most offensive GoDaddy commercial ever. Please please please just go back to Danica Patrick in a bikini or nothing or whatever she wears.

Teri Biebel said...

Worst. Commercial. EVER. Gomer's a smart one.

Snarky Girl's Rants and Raves said...

The sounds? Yes. The sounds were EXACTLY the sounds my Akita makes when he licks his asshole. And oddly, I find that a lot less objectionable than that Go Daddy commercial.

Samantha said...

I was eating, I am not anymore... slurp slurp slurp

Kp said...

so disgusto. gomer's spot on.

Noelle said...

I was practically puking in my mouth for that one. My 8 yr old was too, in her mouth, not mine.

Mexmom said...

That was a bad commercial but I think it got the advertising they wanted.

ShutUpandRun said...

Hahahaha!! I agree with him, it was gross, but then I couldn't stop watching. I can't believe he didn't tell you about the Taco Bell one with the old people and the condoms. Favorite hands down.

Tima said...

I agree...ewwwwwww....

ErinMSW said...

Yeah, my stomach turned on that one. I don't care who they are, I don't need to see people making out that up close. Blech.

Starr said...

I'm not grossed out by much, but that commercial made me want to barf. It was disgusting!

Maple Syrup Land said...

The slurping...THE SLURPING!!

I am so glad I did not watch the Superbowl

Confessions of a PTO Mom said...

Watched that with our girls... couldn't find the remote to change the channel. Yeah..... Teenagerdom will be fun!

Shanee @ LivingLifeSouthernStyle said...

I am a new follower...love your blog. I'm all growed up and I am with Gomer the sight, the sound the whole thing was icky!

SarahMarie said...

HAHAHA OMG that made me laugh out loud during my work training. He was all...red and splotcy. hahahaha I love it. Kids say the darndest things.

Synnøve @ Dont Chew on the Dinner Table! said...

I have to say I may be the only person who liked this one. Don't get me wrong, it grossed me out with all the juicy noises but I made me want to puke and laugh at the same time. Very effective!

I'm with Gomer. The Go Daddy commercial totally skeeved me out. It made me very happy that I used Blue Host instead of them for my website -- I didn't help pay for that ad. :)

*shudder*

Murph said...

I'm with you...

fishducky said...

I'm with Synnove--I liked it!!

Jenn @ Something Clever 2.0 said...

Yes! That was a fully-clothed porno. I hope her parents never see that.

Jessica B said...

I agree with Gomer. That was a pretty disgusting commercial.

I know a few bloggers who are now telling Go Daddy to Go Shove it; so backlash...begun.

Eileen said...

My seven year old agrees with Gomer. And this is a boy who doesn't think girls have cooties, he actually likes them and wants to be friends with them! He said "Ewww! It looks like they're eating each other. And THAT is gross."

Well said, little man. Well said.

DWC said...

It was disgusting! I don't want to even watch TWO attractive people kiss that up close. But the part that really skeeved me out is the boy looks like he's about 14.

Laura said...

I wonder how much opinions would change if the guy/boy was as attractive as the girl. No judgement, just wondering.

NoBloggingJustReading said...

It was the slurping sounds that did me in. And the actor looked too young. It wouldn't have been so bad with an older geeky guy and SILENT kissing

TNMom said...

Yeah...the slurping....barf! Good eye, Gomer!

I am with you and want a few more years of naive bliss while I can get it around here!!

Steve said...

As long as our kids are getting the right message... smart = overweight and pale and hot women are turned on by calling men "daddy". THAT skeeves me out more than the kiss...

This is awesome Jen!!! My Wife and I looked at each other and said, "This is still National Television right?" I honestly didn't think this ad would get aired and I can only imagine what my 5 year old nephew would have said after seeing this commercial!

PediNP said...

What is Go Daddy, anyways?

JorDan said...

What made me more sick than the makeout...was looking at her face when she pulled away. You can see that she is trying to not gag and puke. Hope the paycheck was worth it honey! YUCK

Sadie K said...

I agree with Gomer. I do not want to watch anyone make out, much less that car wreck. I found it offensive on so many levels. Did anyone else feel that the "beauty" was probably several years older than the "brains"? Don't really know what they were trying accomplish other than an extreme reaction. I was an Advertising major in college, and I remember being taught that creativity was great as long as is serves its purpose; to gain recognition and sell the product; if creativity doesn't do this, it's missed the point.

Don't worry, before you know it you will have to put some porn blocking software on your computer. Trust me.

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

If I saw that commercial at an impressionable age, I would never want to touch lips with anyone, ever. I would still be single, living in my mom's basement.

Gomer may live with you forever, in which case, you will have gotten your wish for him to never grow up.

Kelly and Sne said...

Yes my 5YO boy was VERY interested in this commercial but at the end declared "yuck!" I also had to explain the Calvin Klein commercial when my 3YO daughter asked "what's that?" I told them that it was men with big muscles in their underwear. They both declared that they wanted big muscles too.

Ellen@ Bad Word Mama! said...

I wanted to throw up on myself! I had to cover my ears, the same way I do when watching a scary movie and someone is being sawed in half!!

Tinkerbellemommy said...

I totally agree...the sound effects were the yuckiest part!!! I sure hope there was hazard pay in it for the "beauty". She certainly deserved it, I would have thrown up a little myself.

Bridget said...

I agree with Gomer 1 million %. It was so disgusting I felt I might need to throw up my super bowl snacks.

It sounded like someone stirring week-old macaroni salad. Go Daddy has ruined macaroni salad for me forever.
