Watching the Go Daddy ad during the Super Bowl produced one of two reactions. Either you cowered in disgust or you gave the red-faced nerd, Jesse Heiman, a standing ovation. I will admit that I was part of the latter group.
Heiman plays Walter, “the smart side” of Go Daddy “that creates a killer website for your small business.” Opposite him is Bar Rafaeli, the “sexy side” of Go Daddy.
The kiss shared between the two seems to have been magical after all. Heiman is now being dubbed a “sex symbol.”
“I’ve actually had guys tweet me that they wish they were me, and girls tweet me saying they wish they were Bar,” Heiman said during an interview with CNET. “I have girls run up to me and take pictures with me, tweet me for dates.”
The exposure has even helped his acting career. “There are lots of inquiries coming in to my agent and manager, their phone has been ringing off the hook, but they are really letting me enjoy the moment right now,” he said.
“I would describe myself as a ‘lovable nerd,’” Heiman said. “I play that role regularly in films and TV shows. In my personal life, I’d say I’m a nerd because I like ‘Star Trek’ and professional wrestling.”
