(Newser) – Longtime Super Bowl advertiser GoDaddy has outdone itself with an ad that is being talked about nearly as much as the blackout, the Huffington Post reports. The web hosting firm's spot featured an extreme close-up of supermodel Bar Refaeli making out with a stereotypical nerd, and reactions ranged from amused to disturbed. "Guys, I don't want to panic anyone, but if the blackout lasts long enough, eventually they have to rerun that GoDaddy commercial," quipped Time columnist James Poniewozik when the lights went out. Click here for a look at some of the best ads, and here for Bleacher Report's take on the best, worst, and mediocre.

Too many movies, etc., depict less than attractive people getting with people waaaay out of their league. It is creating a generation of people with unreasonable expectations in dating.

If she had been kissing Zak Efron (or George Clooney), everyone would have loved it! :)

For some reason this really grossed me out I was disgusted but had not any reason to be. Thankfully I wasn't the only one or I never would have mentioned it. Still don't really know what this says about us as a group. Hopefully at least half or my co-grossers are female whereas I am not. I am almost as confused as I am grossed out, or trying to hard to be PC, so as to not disclose some of the reasons why I think I was grossed out. Good now you are at least as confused as I am!!!
