One of the best aspects of the Super Bowl is the commercials â€“ as advertisers pay incredible money so their products and services get featured on a night when people throughout the country gather in front of their TV-sets to watch one of the most popular sports event of the year.
Some of the ads had leaked even before the highly expected Super Bowl. Thus, theÂ GoDaddy.com commercialÂ was revealed that features supermodel and former Leonardo DiCaprio girlfriend Bar Refaeli swapping serious amounts of saliva with so-called nerd â€śWalter,â€ť played by actor Jesse Heiman.
And what begins as a few kisses on the lips quickly later turns into full-on, all-out tongue action, as Bleacher Report claims.
Even though their lips are locked for a couple of seconds, it appears to be an eternity for those watching with their parents or children.
The idea of the ad is quite clear: the company claims that there are two sides to Go Daddy, the smart one and the sexy one.
Thus, the 27-year-old supermodel represents the sexy, while Walter is supposed to be the smart. And as Danica Patrick assumes: “Together, they are perfect.”
Thousands of posts about the ad Twitter, although most were more focused on what the former DiCaprioâ€™s girlfriend had daone, rather than on using GoDaddy to make a â€śPerfect Match.â€ť

@aishatylerÂ said: “The kid kissingÂ Bar RefaeliÂ in that GoDaddy [ad] must’ve made a serious deal with the devil. Like souls and firstborns. Beware of falling frogs.”
AndÂ @TheJK_KidÂ wanted to get in contact with the supermodel, writing: “Bar RefaeliÂ you are not that broke! #callme.â€ť
@TheOrangeConeÂ tweeted: â€śWell, at least we knowÂ Bar RefaeliÂ will pretty much do anything for money. #GoDaddyFAIL.â€ť
While some people took to the social networking sited to agree that Refaeli was not broke enough to be doing a commercial like that, others claimed they might lose their appetite because of what they had seen.
@HeidiCF8Â said: “Anyone who didn’t lose stomach content over that godaddy commercial withÂ Bar RefaeliÂ isÂ notÂ watching the same Superbowl I am.Â Gag!”
Some media reports that the Israeli beauty was paid $450,000,000 for the kiss in the ad but that of course has not been verified by any source.
She had previously appeared on NBC’s â€śToday” show to talk about kissing the stereotypical dweeb, â€śWalter.â€ť Refaeli admitted that Heiman is a â€śvery good kisser.â€ť
She went further, revealing: “I have a very strange dream that all my friends know about where I go to [a] club, look around, choose the guy most unlikely to be kissed, and kiss him in front of everyone,Â and give [him] something to remember for the rest of the week.”
The ad drew criticism from CBS censors and soon the two original versions of the ad were rejected after being deemed “indecent.”
As TheÂ New York Daily News writes, “The one that will run Sunday is a less passionate version that cuts out the tongue shot.”
