Whom To Root for in the Super Bowl, Part II

Actor Jesse Heiman, an unlikely pick to make out with Bar Refaeli

Print Email

In addition to endorsing the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII, I’d also like to endorse actor Jesse Heiman, who was cast in the GoDaddy commercial below. In it, he gets to do what nearly many Jewish boys have dreamed of doing: make out with Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli:

For those who have been worrying about Refaeli’s past affiliations with Leonardo DiCaprio, you should be pleased to know that Jesse Heiman, according to his MySpace profile, is a Member of the Tribe. If you don’t trust MySpace then perhaps consider that he somehow wrangled the filming of this commercial to need 45 takes to complete. From Ad Weekly:

In an email, Go Daddy said Heiman “was a Go Daddy hosting customer long before he was cast to play Walter.” The company added: “He had never been in a Super Bowl commercial … and never kissed a supermodel before.”

The couple did 45 takes of the kiss, Go Daddy claimed, adding that Heiman afterward said he felt like he won the “championship of men.”

Indeed, Jesse. Indeed.

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
