    GoDaddy Mocks Budweiser’s Adorable Super Bowl Commercial
    GoDaddy Pulls Puppy Super Bowl Ad GoDaddy was going for warm and fuzzy, with a twist, this Super Bowl Sunday. But then animal rights groups got involved.

    In GoDaddy’s ad, which debuted Tuesday and has since been removed from the internet, Buddy, the golden retriever pup, gets bounced out of his owner’s pickup truck and must make the voyage home. He gets there, only to be told that he has already been sold on the internet, with a site made from - you guessed it - GoDaddy.com.

    Dog lovers did not love the ad. "Whether or not this was meant to be satirical, it’s offensive. Essentially, GoDaddy is encouraging private breeding/puppy mills while shelter animals wait patiently for their forever homes or worse — to be euthanized," wrote activist Helena Yurcho, who created a petition to have the ad removed on Change.org. That petition received more than 42,000 supporters in just hours so that, by Tuesday night, GoDaddy had taken down the Super Bowl spot.

    "We hoped our ad would increase awareness of that cause," wrote GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving in a blog post. "However, we underestimated the emotional response. And we heard that loud and clear."

    PETA was pumped. "Go Daddy’s now-yanked commercial showed that anyone who sells a dog online is a callous jerk. PETA liked that about the ad," said PETA Director Colleen O’Brien in a statement. "The sale of animals online and from pet stores and breeders should be roundly condemned, and it was today." Whether you’re a football fan or not, you can’t help but love the Budweiser Super Bowl commercials. But unfortunately, they’ve become a target for a GODaddy ad this year. Take our warning now, don’t get too attached to the sweet puppy in their ad.
    It looks like GoDaddy is taking a less sexual route this year with their Super Bowl ads and are going soft — or so they want you to think. The company is finding humor in toying with our emotions, along with poking fun at the use of adorable puppies in the Budweiser spots.
