GoDaddy won't run a Super Bowl ad in 2016, so you likely won't see Danica Patrick in a suggestive commercial during the game.
Domain name registration company GoDaddy made the decision to pull its planned 2015 Super Bowl ad after the commercial caused outrage among animal lovers when it was posted online. The spot is about a very cute puppy making his way home, only to encounter an unexpected twist...
