Critical opinion for several of the commercials was pretty unanimous. On the positive side, a baby Clydesdale? **squee** ovaries explode ** AWESOME. Overwhelmingly panned was the commercial in which supermodel Bar Rafaeli very audibly kissed GoDaddy's website guru, Walter.
Some commercials received mixed reviews, and have catalyzed some unexpected and interesting online discussions. Consider the following commercial, for Audi:
Is this commercial cute and sexy, or is it sexist? Did she consent to the kiss, or not? Is the kiss romantic, or is it sexual battery?
Maybe this is an occupational hazard, but I immediately started crafting a back story for these characters - one that factored in where, exactly, a high school boy who doesn't have a date for the prom learned how to kiss like that.
What do you think? Sexy or sexist? Do these characters have a back story? What do you think happened at school the following Monday?
