I didn’t write about this yesterday because I didn’t think it was that big of a deal, but seeing how people are still talking about it…let’s do it. For some reason people on the internetssss think that the Go Daddy ad was too controversial because it was sexist. I would like to pose this question to those who think the ad was too controversial. Have you EVER seen a Go Daddy ad? They’re all sexist. They come from the school of thought that sex sells, and it works to their advantage
So internetssss…I would like to put an end to this discussion by saying the ad provoked reaction. It did what Go Daddy wanted, and it made some nerd’s dream come true. The actor that played the nerd has been all over TV and so has Bar–that’s some serious press for a commercial. Not bad for a quick 30-second spot about a web-hosting company.
The chief creative officer of the ad agency that did the spot said, “We understand that a spot like this will be polarizing and controversial. There are others that find it silly. But everyone finds it memorable — and that’s important” – Amen!
For the record, Jesse Heiman (the actor) said the kiss took over 45 takes. Good for him!
Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio.
