GoDaddy's Daddy Drools For Danica
This really qualifies as old news but since it was overshadowed earlier by Motorola and we were prompted by our monthly GoDaddy email, we'll share with you that GoDaddy has, in addition to Motorola and many others, hooked up with Danica Patrick to sponsor her Andretti Green Racing car. In a video that includes the unveiling of the new #7 Team Motorola IndyCar, GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons interviews his new "GoDaddy Girl" in a most excruciatingly awkward manner that can only be likened to Joe Simpson obsessing about his daughter Jessica's 34DD's. While Bob reads from cue cards, Danica sits next to him and through her bored demeanor, you can just hear her say, "What the fuck am I doing here with this cheese ball?"
Bob gushes about his new GoDaddy Girl saying, "Danica thrives on competition, speed and power. She is edgy, innovative and fun! All qualities we identify with at Go Daddy. She is redefining racing and is appealing, no doubt about it." Of course what he really wishes he could say while he sits there on the couch with her is, "Screw Candice Michelle, Go down on Daddy right now Danica!" Oh, she'll also appear in a GoDaddy commercial next year but Bob wouldn't comment on whether or not it would be in a Super Bowl ad or whether there'd be a Super Bowl ad at all.
Cheese factor aside, Bob does know how to get his press.
