For the third year in a row, .CO has teamed up with Go Daddy, the world’s leading Web hosting and domain name provider, to create a Super Bowl commercial intended to inspire people to launch their big ideas with a .CO domain from Go Daddy. The 30-second Super Bowl spot, called YourBigIdea.CO, was officially released Friday, January 25th, and is scheduled to air in the first half of the big game, in slot 7B.
Today, .CO & Go Daddy have launched a website and integrated social campaign tied to the ad, which can be found at the url www.YourBigIdea.co. Deutsch NY produced the commercial and created the social media campaign.
The ad tells a humorous story about the strikingly different futures that can result for those who take action to bring their big ideas to life on a .CO domain name – and those who do not. The heroes of the ad are fabulously rich and outlandishly happy – drinking champagne and flying the world on their private jet. The ad features a cameo from Danica Patrick, the Go Daddy Girl known for being in more Super Bowl commercials than any celebrity in television history, 12 after this campaign.
On the website, YourBigIdea.co, visitors can type their own big ideas into a search bar, and see if their desired .CO domain name is available – while at the same time getting an inspiring glimpse of their own filthy-rich future.
For each available .CO domain, the desired url is auto-magically emblazoned on all sorts of “over-the-top” glamorous images, like the side of a mega yacht, the diamond collar on a prissy cat, a personalized bottle of fancy perfume, and more. Users can then share their favorite images with friends and family via their social media networks – and refer people back to the site to get a sneak peek at their own fabulous futures.
Of course, participants can also purchase their most desired .CO domain names via GoDaddy.co – and get right down to business.
“Leveraging the hashtag #YourBigIdea, the social campaign is intended to appeal to the growing segment of people who will be communicating and sharing via Twitter and Facebook while watching the big game,” said Linda Koritkoski, .CO’s Director of Marketing. “We’re excited to be able to supplement the game-viewing with a fun, engaging and memorable domain search experience — and to get people excited about just how fabulous the future really could be if they would just take action on their big ideas!”
