Danica Patrick was pretty tame in comparison to their earlier Superbowl ads.

Good for them...

She maybe a hotty, but man is it me or is she a hot mess?

I mean are you a driver, or a cheesecake calendar girl?

When the going gets tough and you have to be held back from getting physical with the boys does that scream of anger management issues?

Then ther is her flap on Obamacare/contraception...

I am so over her, time to move on....

I have clients who would never use GoDaddy, because of GoDaddy’s slutty image. It’s a good business choice on GoDaddy’s part to “attempt” to clean up their image. But the die has been cast to a large degree.

'Bout time, she needs to earn her chops as a driver.
I guess the calendar girl thing made her and Go Daddy some healthy bucks and that's OK but I'd rather see a serious Danica on the track.

Driver?

Danica can’t hardly crack the top 15 in Nationwide, let alone Cup. And that’s with equipment at the top of the food chain.

She’s getting beat like a rented mule.

Having said that, she just landed a MAJOR deal with Coke Zero.

She’ll be a wealthy woman for the rest of her life.

What? Can't walk and chew gum at the same time? You go ahead and move along if you like. I want to stay and look a little longer if that ok with you.

I guess they had to tone it down. There really wasn’t anywhere to go other than Danica in a threesom with Jillian Michaels and James Hinchcliffe (he took over her IndyCar ride, for those of you who don’t know him).

And for the record, Hinch can drive tight little circles around Gimmicka...

I suspect she is an idiot as far as anything other than racing or sex is concerned.

I saw a picture of her with an NFL Quarterback a couple of years ago. Of course he was a large guy but not an offensive lineman etc. She looked positively tiny beside him.

She may end up losing more than GoDaddy with her liberal views. Saddened the hell out of me! I hate it when a hottie goes liberal in public! My mind does not want to know what my eyes like lookin’ at.

What about Jillian Michaels? Won’t the LBGTwhatever (I can never remember all of their initials) claim descrimination?

She’s not much over five feet, and around 100 pounds. I remember there was a minor controversy over her stature giving her a competitive advantage back when the IRL’s minimum car weight didn’t include the driver...

Of course that advantage was offset by her driving to some extent.

You name your company “Go Daddy” and then whine when potential customers do not take you seriously?

Go Daddy is currently the largest ICANN-accredited registrar in the world, and is four times the size of its closest competitor.

Something is working....

It was inevitable. Both Danica and GoDaddy now want to be “taken seriously” and you can’t do that flashing a bunch of t&a.

Either stuff like Frank Luntz does for politicians showed that the Go-Daddy thing had run its course or I have another suggestion
Danica is MARRIED we hardly ever see Mr Danica, but it could be possible that Ms Danica is with CHILD and does not want to do commericals with the mommy belly...just saying.
Remember the Freeper rules tho...this story is useless without lots of “not guilty” picutres

Same here. If you’ve ever read about or interviews of the owner, the sleeze starts from the top.

Fine for a whole swath of the internet but not for a lot of businesses.

Yes Jillian is gay but she didn’t mention it ever on Biggest Loser. I only recently saw an article about her and her partner adopting a child, AND the partner had a child. She had been trying to adopt for a long time and it just happened the adoption went through the same week the partner gave birth. So in one week she had an infant and a child almost 2 years old in her home.

Patrick is married to Paul Edward Hospenthal, who had previously been her physical therapist while she was recovering from a yoga injury.

Yoga injury?

She won a race. Twin Ring Motegi. 2009 or 2010. Oval track. First woman to win an IRL oval track event.

I don't agree with her politics. But she drove damn well on that race. So do your research so you won't look like such an idiot.

Yeah she did win.
But that particular one was a fuel economy derby so her crew chief was significantly responsible.

Having said that, I respect anybody that drives 200 mph on the track.

I think it was more political naivety than left wing political views.

The funny thing about models - somewhere there’s a rich guy who got tired of listening to her BS.

They should come with mute buttons.

That’s the thing about Hollywood in general - its a class of dropouts who are basically very good at lying to get what they want. The ability to argue cause and effect isn’t on their list of traits - anywhere.
