Actor in Reviled Super Bowl Ad Reveals He’s Headed to Hit Sitcom

Feb 5, 2013  •  Post A Comment

The 34-year-old actor who appeared in one of the most disliked ads of this year’s Super Bowl said he will appear next in CBS’s "The Big Bang Theory," according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.

Actor Jesse Heiman starred as the geek in GoDaddy’s ad featuring model Bar Refaeli. The pair kissed for 10 seconds in the ad, with the concept being that the Web firm has both a sexy and a smart side. The spot was ranked as the worst ad by USA Today’s Ad Meter, as previously reported. The ad can be seen by clicking here.

Heiman will appear in the Feb. 14 episode of "The Big Bang Theory." The story notes that he has appeared as an extra on the show for several years. His role in the Feb. 14 episode is nonspeaking.

  1. Well, it may have been rated the worse, but everyone is talking about it. I say it was an effective ad.

  2. Memorable is not always “effective”. The ad was tasteless and vulgar. I have been a Go-Daddy customer for a while and when they pull this kind of tasteless thing it reminds me. Company cultures are placed before the customer in advertisements. Obviously Go-Daddy never met a pair of women’s breasts it didn’t think belonged on camera or a lovely woman it doesn’t think should be exploited sexually. Do female entrepreneurs like that? I am not so sure that I like that… but I am no longer twelve!

  3. Don’t see how this year’s GoDaddy SB ad was any more “tasteless” than previous years’ ads. At least this ad involved only lips
