If you view the full 2 minute version of the ad it's hilarious - I don't see why the NFL and Fox wanted the second ad pulled at the last minute, but - like Simon said...

By getting the ad rejected, they just got themselves more airtime than they could buy even if they sold their company 100 times over.
I had the feeling that would be the case, but since I don't live in the US, I have no touch with the news there.

Very smart move. That's the way to go! Manipulate the media! Give them news (or put the bread on their table) and you'll get crumbs to feed your family for generations!

Found out just a bit ago that a buddy of mine - his wife landed a job at GoDaddy doing their online sales and marketing. She handles their Yahoo department, so if you need to buy a domain from GoDaddy, Yahoo search for GoDaddy then click the link for their site - she doesn't get a comission but it does help her job security

While publicity is publicity, I sure wouldn't want to be known as the company that had probably one of the most senseless commercials during the superbowl.

The publicity it's bringing them is fair, but it comes right down to putting the focus on a badly produced, and badly plotted commercial.

I certainly applaud Bob, for bringing more attention to GoDaddy. He's a smart and stand up guy definately.

I just generally tend to focus on the development and design portion of things, because that's what today's generation is all about...visual stimulation, and I feel the commercial was bad in quality, and lacked creativity.

It was a bit better if you view the full 2 minute "hearing" they had on their website - they made a large reference to last year's superbowl mishap.

I just don't think we'll be able to see the quality commercials we use to see - I didn't really laugh this year at any of them. A few "chuckles" here and there, but no laughs. :-/
