Meet Anna Rawson’s Cute GoDaddy TV Ad Co-Star

We were all excited when Anna Rawson at long last made her televised debut as a spokesbabe for GoDaddy.Com. Although it was great to see Anna bust her commercial acting chops, some questions still remained.

For example, what happened next in the ad? In order to do so, you have to go to GoDaddy’s site to see the exciting conclusion. So check it out, and make sure you hold your sides firmly to keep them from splitting from hilarious laughter.

But the real question is - who’s Anna’s good-looking golf partner?

Video: Anna Rawson’s First GoDaddy Commercial

Is Danica Patrick played out? It seems sudden, being that she’s still on the rise in her young IRL career and her commercials are still popular. But lo and behold, there’s two ladies in the latest GODADDY.COM commercial… and neither of them are her.

(Oh! Oh! They’re looking at each other like that! Something might happen!)

On the left is… some random GoDaddy eye candy. More importantly, on the right is the lovely Anna Rawson, a fixture of the LPGA & newest GoDaddy Girl. In a commercial that was supposed to air today before Bethpage Black was turned into the bottom of the ocean, Rawson and her ladypal are playing golf, when all of a sudden… oh, just watch for yourself on the video, which we’re pretty sure you can’t find anywhere else on the Internet yet (okay, technically, DEVIL BALL GOLF beat us by a day) after the break.

Danica Patrick Gets Speeding Ticket From Stripper

Welcome back to your regularly scheduled SPORTSbyBROOKS programming. We hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, or at the very least, got drunk and embarrassed yourself somehow.

Somebody who didn’t drink and embarrass herself over the weekend was Danica Patrick. While she didn’t win the Indy 500 on Sunday, she did manage to finish in third place. Now as Ricky Bobby would remind us, if you’re not first your last, but third place is still the least last that any driver who has to pee sitting down at the Brickyard has ever finished, so she should be proud of herself.

If nothing else the third-place finish might help her forget about that unfortunate speeding ticket she got from that motorcycle cop/stripper that she ran into in the desert.

Hyundai Might Pull SB Ads; More Adriana Instead?

The WALL STREET JOURNAL reports that Hyundai is thinking about pulling it’s ads from the Super Bowl.

Hyundai Picasso

The South Korean auto maker is fearful their spots might rub some prospective buyers the wrong way. Not because of any racy content or wardrobe malfunctions, but because of concerns about a stagnating economy.

Hyundai believes that “taking out high-priced ads in this environment might rub some consumers the wrong way.”

Well, it didn’t bother Allstate when they sponsored the BCS Championship game in Louisiana - where many hurricane insurance claims are still unpaid.

If Hyundai decides to pull out but Fox can’t find any new ad buyers, the spots will have to air. However, as the WSJ points out, “Given the high demand for ad time, Fox would likely be able to sell the slots at an even higher price.”

And we have a good idea what viewers are hoping to see instead.

Beard Gets More Coverage On “Best Damn” Show

We discovered something rather interesting today. Fox TV’s “Best Damn Sports Show” is still airing original episodes. Seriously, we had no idea until we received a press release this week touting Amanda Beard as a new, permanent “correspondent” for the show.

Amanda Beard

Not surprisingly, GoDaddy.com is all over her appearances for the FSN production, which we quit watching when they got rid of that cool Rolling Rock basement bar-looking set.

Safe to say having Beard on the show will be an improvement on the current “Best Damn” output (so long as she’s breathing). Especially based on what we hear about her role on the show (thankfully, there’s no serious reportage).

Go Daddy Girls Bouncing Their Way To ESPN College Football Broadcasts

CURVACEOUS COMMERCIALS TO COMPLEMENT CORSO & CO: The Go Daddy Girls will soon be bouncing their way to a Ball State-Baylor broadcast near you:

Go Daddy Girls ESPN

The ARIZONA REPUBLIC reports that Go Daddy Group Inc. has signed a multimillion-dollar deal to sponsor college football games on ESPN. The domain-name registar is best known for airing risque ads during the Super Bowl - and snagging racy racer Danica Patrick as a spokesmodel person.

Danica Patrick

Starting September 22, the curvaceous commercials will be filling up ad slots on the Worldwide Leader’s game-day cleavage coverage. Lucky fans should be able to catch a glimpse (or maybe more) of the perky promo gals up to 500 times this season.

Lee Corso Is A Penis

Besides, ESPN should be used to boobs on their broadcasts by now. (And we don’t mean the guy with the sign.)

Danica Patrick GoDaddy Ad Isn’t Bring Sexy Back, So No One Watches

DANICA WON’T BRING SEXY BACK, SO WE WON’T WATCH: SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY reports “GoDaddy aired three different 30-second ads during ABC’s coverage of Indianapolis 500 Bump Day yesterday, two of which featured Danica Patrick. One of Patrick’s practice runs immediately followed the first ad.

The two ads featuring Patrick emphasized her competitive spirit and driving ability rather than her sex appeal, which one may not expect from GoDaddy.

Emphasizing her driving over bodily assets? Now we know why no one saw it.

GoDaddy Drives In Danica For Super Bowl TV Ads

Danica Patrick

The eye-candy-conscious admakers for GoDaddy.com admit they’ve resoted to using IRL driver/hottie Danica Patrick in their three 30-second Super Bowl spots that’ll air during the Feb. 4 contest on CBS.

Candice Michelle

Of course, “Go Daddy Girl” Candice Michelle will also be included, along with motorcycle racer Valerie Thompson.GoDaddy insists it submitted 14 versions of its commercial spots to ABC before the network approved one to air during last year’s Super Bowl. Just as long as there’s no Jay-Z driving along side either Patrick or Thompson egging them on, we’re OK with the choices.
