Domain registration giant Go Daddy has been successfully lowering the bar on Super Bowl commercial humor for years, but this time they apparently found out how far is too far. Go Daddy insists they're pulling their latest spot from the big game after numerous complaints from animal rights activists. The Budweiser-spoofing ad features an adorable puppy finding its way back home only to discover its owner is selling it. The company says they'll still have a presence at the Super Bowl with a backup ad.
Of course, this could all be a well-orchestrated stunt by Go Daddy intended to drum up even more attention for their brand. Dang it, now I feel like a dupe.
