Voted the worst of the worst by viewers (source), GoDaddy's "Perfect Match" commercial seemed like agony to sit through. Starring Victoria's Secret model Bar Refaeli and actor Jesse Heiman, the words disgusting and messy immediately came to mind. Of course, this commercial ended up sparking a huge outrage.
However, on Tuesday, GoDaddy revealed that the Monday following the Super Bowl was the biggest sales day in the history of the company (source).
- Hosting sales jumped 45%.
- Dot-com domain sales rose 40%.
- New mobile customers increased by 35%.
- The company added 10,000 customers in total
So here's more proof that sex does in fact sell. The point of this commercial was to peak your attention. I bet this is one of only a few commercials that you remember fully. So GoDaddy, mission accomplished. Congratulations.
