    Its mostly dog rights activists, some of them can go pretty insane at times. The ones attacking Godaddy over this are the same people attacking over people and governments about doing things about 35kg creatures with 2.5cm long teeth killing children.

    You guys are kidding right? I'm not gonna watch the ad but this has to be *exactly* what they were hoping for. Having someone tell everyone they can't watch your ad is going to have them flocking to you just to see what was so shocking. Why do you think GoDaddy used to always do those commercials with the "See What Happens Next!" and "Too Hot For TV" endings?

    What on Earth is wrong with people? The ad they ran was both BRILLIANT and HILARIOUS. They made fun of the Budweiser puppy ad and did a great job. I seriously can't believe how easily offended people are these days. WHAT was so offensive about the ad that you haven't already seen on SharkTank or tv a thousand times before?

    The world has completely lost it's sense of humor. Most my friends who saw the ad thought it was brilliant. There were a few vegan freaks on facebook bitching about it and I will probably be unfriended for the comments I made. But I don't GAF.

    You people can drop in here and say "fuck Godaddy" the same way you say "fuck Google" cause they're both great at what they do... but in the end it just makes you look like a hater.

    As far as animal rights go, I rescued my pup off a godaddy registered website. Like thousands of people do every single day. Dog breeding is not illegal. And yes there are some very awful things that go on in some of these puppy mills. But getting mad at Godaddy for making a joke is a complete misprojection of anger.

    You people are marketers. You don't have to like Godaddy's service but if you can't respect a brand that is always pushing the edge and takings risks, I feel sorry for you. All they really do is invoke humor like Gieco does. And I've heard plenty of Gieco ads I thought were offensive as all hell but never once did I see people trigger a shitstorm over a simple joke they made.

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    Im a dog owner and a dog lover. Those who commit cruelty to dogs should be hanged.....thats how far my love for canines goes.

    This ad is funny. Nothing wrong with it in my view.

    And its actually benefited the Animal rights activists in a sense by making more people aware of puppy mills

    Godaddy is one of the worst webhost hosts with a ridiculous shared hosting plan

    the ending escalated quickly, felt cruel but it was funny as well. And yes I think godaddy is definitely not a good webhost
