During the opening of his talk show Tuesday night, its host Jay Leno asked DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend Bar Refaeli whether they could re-create a kissing scene from her Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial.
“That Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial you did was great, it was one of my favorites,” Leno told the beauty before the opening of Wednesday’s show. “I’m thinking, any chance we could recreate the ad?”
“Sure!” Refaeli said readily. “Pucker up.”
As the host of the show closed his eyes, in walked Jesse Heiman, Refaeli’s partner from the infamous commercial. And he seemed to be more than happy to replay the kissing scene with Leno!
“Now I feel like I’m not the only one,” Refaeli joked later.
When asked whether she was surprised by all the hype, the Israeli beauty admitted that she how big the Super Bowl was in America but that “I never thought this was going to happen.”
She recalled doing “a lot” of takes during the shoot for the commercial and her paertners’s being “really nervous.”
“I guess they liked it so much, they said, ‘We want a tighter shot. And a tighter shot. And a tighter shot,’” she described shooting take after take.
“I said, ‘Couldn’t you just bring different three cameras and go from all angles? Do I really need to do this 60 times?’”
“He’s a sweetheart,” Refaeli described Heiman. “I haven’t seen the commercial on a big screen while the volume is up,” Refaeli said, “but I know that Danica [Patrick] on my right couldn’t look at us. After every time, she’d look at us and go, ‘Guys, the noise! The sound!’”
“Is he a good kisser?” Leno asked, to which his guest handily replied, “You tell me.”
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 “Today” show to talk about kissing the stereotypical dweeb, “Walter.” Refaeli admitted that Heiman is a “very good kisser.”
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, 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.”
Thousands of posts about the ad Twitter, although most were more focused on what the former DiCaprio’s girlfriend had daone, rather than on using GoDaddy to make a “Perfect Match.”

@aishatyler said: “The kid kissing Bar Refaeli in that GoDaddy [ad] must’ve made a serious deal with the devil. Like souls and firstborns. Beware of falling frogs.”
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.
