Bill O’Reilly Slams GoDaddy Super Bowl Ad For Being "Offensive To Men"

O’Reilly Slams GoDaddy, Taco Bell Super Bowl Ads For Offending Men, Senior Citizens
by Matt Wilstein | 8:40 pm, February 4th, 2013

Bill O’Reilly kicked off his post-Super Bowl show by reviewing the best and worst of last night’s commercials. He particularly loved Dodge’s “So God Made A Farmer” ad, which used the religious imagery of conservative radio host Paul Harvey and celebrated “traditional America.” But he found some of the other ads to be “offensive” and “dumb.”

The two ads that really got O’Reilly’s goat were the Bar Refaeli-starring ad for GoDaddy.com and Taco Bell’s senior-citizens-on-a-bender spot. He slammed GoDaddy’s ad for offending men and the Taco Bell ad for disrespecting the elderly. In his Talking Points Memo segment, O’Reilly played clips from both ads and explained why they bothered him so much.

O’Reilly found the GoDaddy ad “hard to watch,” presumably due to the shock value of seeing a supermodel make out with a less-than-attractive nerd stereotype. He labeled it “purely voyeurism” and “offensive to men.”

1. Can it, Billo - I'M the nerd who won the heart of a knockout

Well, maybe Ginny would have said it was the other way around, but these things can and do happen in the real world.

Love the GoDaddy ad.

2. The Volkswagen ad was racist. The Clydesdale one was a Kleenex moment

 

I didn't see Dodge's ad so can't comment.

5. If a few months at DU would teach anybody anything

It's that the Wounded Disenfranchised Male is the great potential wedge group for the conservatives to still draw on. Even the liberal ones act like they're ready to bolt for an "Offensive to Men!" screaming demagogue at any moment.

6. O'Reilly thought it was offensive?

Then I like it.

If Billo was for motherhood and apple pie, then I would oppose motherhood and apple pie
