Super Bowl: GoDaddy Teases, Victoria's Secret Commits, Hyundai May Pull
OK, here we go. It's Super Bowl time. As usual, we have GoDaddy foisting upon us its now very tired "boo hoo, FOX banned our commercial" routine. This time, it's over the word "beaver." Damn, it's like an eighties teen flick all over again. And all of this comes after CEO Bob Parsons said a while back they might not even appear in the game so who knows what the hell to expect from they. Our guess is they'll tease us with these "banned spots" right up until game day when they announce they won't be appearing during the game. Of course, we hope that's not the case.
Next, we have Victoria's Secret gearing up for Valentine's Day with a holiday promotion Super Bowl spot in the game featuring VS model Ariana Lima along with Karolina Kurkova and Selita Ebanks. It will be the lingerie maker's first appearance in the game since 1999.
In a more depressing turn, we have Hyundai indicating it may pull the two :30's it committed to back in October citing a downturn in the economy. Pleas, please, please. We are not looking forward to writing that phrase over and over again. As reported in Automotive News, Hyundai spokesman Chris Hosford said, "We are reviewing whether or not we want to advertise on the Super Bowl."
