Bear Spoof Of GoDaddy's Bodybuilder Ad: VIDEO

BearDance parody

Last week web host provider GoDaddy deviated a bit from their normal marketing method of using scantily-clad women to sell their hosting services with a commercial featuring scantily-clad male bodybuilders sprinting to the tanning salon. The guys behind BearDance took the idea and ran with it for a cute spoof to advertise their March party.

Whether you like 'em brawny or fluffy we've embedded both so you can compare the spoof to the original AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Why is the black guy running to a tanning salon? PC taken too far.

  2. For those of us not into the Bear Culture, the spoof was mildly amusing and kind of dumb at the same time.
    P.S. If I saw all these bears running down the street, I'd bolt in the opposite direction!

  4. I am a bear and like 'em too, thus I like this ad very much.

  5. Interestingly, one of the bodybuilders in the original GoDaddy ad is former gay porn star Chris Wide. Too bad he wasn't cast in the spoof commercial!

  6. It's early. Give it time for the shrieking queens and their ageist, sizeist and generally vapid comments about hirsute men to add up.

  7. since when is 'bear' synonymous with 'fat'

  8. For a while now. "Bear' has come to mean hefty or fat gay guys. Soon it will mean all hefty or fat guys period in the way that words change meaning (ever hear of awesome?) . It's also typical that word use among gay men are appropriated by straight culture. Fact is, the stuff that gay men come up with so often so totally rocks that the culture can't resist it.

    But most bears are just too flabby with processed food for me. Real bears are fit.

  11. CHILD TO PARENT: Mommy/Daddy, why are there a bunch fat, hairy men almost naked running down the street?

    PARENT: Hush child! Just shield your eyes, you might go blind!

    Just kidding, it's cute.

  12. UFFDA you don't what you are talking about.

  13. Only one of those guys is a bear. The rest are just fat. Real Bears are hairy, husky, fit guys.

    I hate that the old Girth-and-Mirth took over the Bear scene. They're not Bears at all.

    Remember: Gravy is not a beverage.

  14. Gross! They are all fat.

  15. Boys,

    My husband is a gem among gems. We got to know and love each other very much over 2.5 years and several hundred emails and calls before we ever even saw pictures of each other. Our first date was a disaster since neither of us fit into the others' physical 'type' category; we would have bagged it after one date based on looks. However, we both knew the other inside and out, and we love the soul that's in these bodies. No, we're not perfect, nor each other's ideal body. Yes, we are blissfully happy. Look past the physical just a bit - it won't last anyway. The other part will.

    Totally disdainful comments about large men. For your information, "Bears" can be fit or fat or chubby or anything in between... Large, hefty, chubby men are not "gross". They can be sexy and very sexual and waaayyy hotter than bitchy, self-loathing men obsessed with meeting ridiculous body image expectations.

  17. WOW, the claws are out! Put them away, kitties.

  18. Called it.

  19. Keep running, guys. No, really, keep running. You need the cardio.

  20. There are muscle bears, chubby bears, and regular bears in the middle. Saying one type defines the genre just because you don't like the other kinds is ridiculous. And immature. But then again, this is Towleroad, land of the toxic bitter self-hating gays, so it all makes sense.

  21. If you actually took the time to leave a comment shaming the guys in the video, congratulations, you're a terrible person.
