I'm guessing that Nerds everywhere are rejoicing and Bar is barfing all the way to the Bank!
During last nights Super Bowl XLVII, the GoDaddy commercial had viewers like me nauseated and disgusted.
The GoDaddy commercial showed Bar Refaeli, who ends up kissing a tech nerd and while the kiss itself did not bother viewers, it was the sound effects that got people talking. Viewers were disgusted as they heard loud slurping and other noises during the kiss.
The Huffington Post asked what viewers thought and most of the responders agreed that the sound effects were nauseating. Some of the words used to describe GoDaddy's Super Bowl 2013 commercial were disgusting, gross, repulsive, nasty, offensive and puke-worthy. One commenter even said that because of the tasteless commercial, GoDaddy would not be getting their business in the future...hmm
Zap2It wrote that the GoDaddy ad ended up number two on the list of the worst Super Bowl 2013 commercials. Companies pay millions of dollars for a 30 second spot and you would think for that amount of cash that they would come up with something decent. Zap2It also said,
"EXCEPT THE SMACKING, DEAR GOD, MAKE THAT DISGUSTING SOUND STOP."
Did you see the GoDaddy commercial during the Super Bowl 2013? What did you think...Were you disgusted by the slurping noises during the kiss or was it not a big deal?
Anheuser-Busch climbed back into the saddle with the Super Bowl's top commercial — a heart-tugging tale of the bond between a trainer and the Budweiser Clydesdale he raised.
But it was a horse race.
This was the Super Bowl when ads with heart got all the love in USA TODAY'S Ad Meter, which, for its 25th anniversary, vastly expanded in scope by going online to 7,619 pre-registered panelists.

Procter & Gamble's Tide laundry detergent pulled off a close No. 2, ahead of many Super Bowl regulars, with gentle humor.
Its ad had an image of football legend Joe Montana miraculously appearing in a salsa stain on a rabid fan's jersey.
The miracle stain causes a media uproar and becomes a relic of worship until the fan's wife — who happens to be a Baltimore Ravens fan — washes the stain out with Tide.
If anything, maybe this Tide commercial will start a tide of men taking laundry chores back from the women? Now THAT would be a miracle!
