After years of vague risqué Super Bowl ads that had people asking, "OK, but what exactly is GoDaddy?", they're really going to tell it to you. The 2017 GoDaddy Super Bowl commercial for the domain space site is banging in the fact that it's internet-related by showing you where the personified internet lives. It also, for your own amusement, is chock-full of references to the World Wide Web. So you may be wondering, replay after replay, what are all the internet Easter eggs in the GoDaddy commercial?
Well, the truth is that nabbing all those hidden meta jokes will drive you absolutely crazy, as there are plenty stuffed in there. Moreover, as the YouTube comments seem to lament, these are old and sometimes forgotten memes working their way into the narrative, which is a little cringeworthy, like hearing your dad using "lit" or something. Now, in some respects that can't be entirely GoDaddy's fault, as memes are constantly being born, flooding our newsfeed for a brief time before they either retire of old age (i.e. show up on Family Guy a year later) or become a larger part of pop culture. No one can expect Salt Bae or “cash me ousside, howbow dah?” to appear in a commercial probably filmed months ago.
That said, it's really feeling like 2014 up in here. Regardless, it's a fun little treasure hunt, so watch the video below and then see what I rounded up.
