GoDaddy.com has decided to pull their ad from the Super Bowl and take it down from Youtube after it caused an uproar on social media.
The company released the ad called “Journey Home,” that featured a puppy that’s been separated from his family on his way home.
The commercial’s ending showed the dog’s owners were happy to see him make it home because they’d just sold the puppy on a website built using GoDaddy… suggesting the owner runs a puppy mill.
Within hours, an online petition to pull the ad got tens of thousands of signatures.
The company released a statement saying they were only trying to poke fun at Budweiser for teasing that their Super Bowl ad would feature a puppy.
