As coined by the media, the term refers to ads that are fun, edgy and slightly inappropriate. “We love commercials that are entertaining – ads that will make viewers want to log on to their computers to see the Internet-Only version at GoDaddy.com,” Parsons said. “They aren’t the easiest concepts to create, but it’s the kind of ad that has worked in spades for Go Daddy.” Parsons is the sole judge for the contest.
