John Turturro Stars In Godaddy Superbowl Ad Where Real Person, Quits Real Job


Actor John Turturro stars in GoDaddy’s 1st Half Super Bowl commercial where a real person quits a real job to pursue her passion and start her own business.

In what is an historic commercial ‘first,’ you’ll see a real person quit a real job in front of 100-million people!

During the big game, see how a gutsy go getter goes from working for someone else to following their dream and turning a hobby into their very own small business.

Only the people involved with the commercial production and the person’s dad know who it is.

Her boss doesn’t know! He or she is going to find out while watching the commercial with the rest of the viewers –   after the commercial, a formal resignation letter will be delivered and she’ll give her 2-week notice.

The commercial is slated to air in slot 6B, likely the 2nd ad to air at the end of the 1st Quarter.

It’s all about pursuing your dream with GoDaddy’s Website Builder.

GoDaddy Super Bowl campaign overview:

In GoDaddy’s new advertising strategy, the commercials highlight Website Builder & Get Found products which focus on helping very small businesses leverage the Internet to grow their bottom line.
Women in the commercials are smart, successful small business owners.

Both commercials were directed by Bryan Buckley, who the NYT has called ‘The King of Super the Bowl’ because of the number of SB commercials he has directed.

Both GoDaddy commercials were produced by Deutsch, NY.
