The Israeli beauty locks lips with a chubby-faced, bespectacled nerd, played by commercials actor Jesse Heiman, in a sensational commercial for GoDaddy.com, and while many viewers have been left turned off by the leaked clip, Refaeli admits it was one of her most memorable experiences and she’s thankful to the online company for giving her the opportunity to shoot the project.
She tells U.S. breakfast show Today, “It’s a funny thing because I actually have this very strange dream that all my friends know about it. I always wanted to go to a club, or somewhere filled with people, look around, choose the one guy that’s most unlikely that I’ll ever kiss or pay attention to and go and kiss him in front of everyone, so he will be happy and will remember it for the rest of the week… For me, it was almost like Go Daddy made my dream come true.”
The commercial, which will air during the big game on Sunday (03Jan13), has already been censored by the CBS TV network due to its explicit content, but Refaeli insists she has no hard feelings about the executives’ decision to show a tamer version of her sloppy make-out session with Heiman.
She adds, “I would’ve been very much fine (sic) with the second one airing, and not the tamer one… I just feel like if you do something like that and it’s filled with a lot of humour… then go all the way, but I trust the people that know better than me.”
She won’t be the only supermodel starring in a new Super Bowl commercial on Sunday – Kate Upton will appear in ads for Mercedes.
