But as of late, the Super Bowl entertainment has been controversial, and this year is no exception. <p>Two naked women in a shower or a woman exposing her &quot;enhanced&quot; chest in front of the Congress? You choose!</p> <p>That's right. This year, <a href="http://www.godaddy.com/">godaddy.com</a> has asked people to vote on their website for which revealing ad of Indy racer Danica Patrick they would like aired on Super Bowl Sunday.</p> <p>After the 2004 Super Bowl &quot;wardrobe malfunction&quot; <a href="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,110114,00.html">controversy</a> affectionately now known as &quot;Nipplegate,&quot; many wonder why NBC would air such a commercial. But NBC apparently has some standards, as it has recently rejected the animal rights group PETA's sexy vegetable ad. An NBC spokesperson <a href="http://www.kansascity.com/entertianment/story/1007109.html">told</a> the Washington Post that &quot;the ad was rejected because it did not conform with our standards.&quot;</p><!--break--> <p>But those standards apparently are met by young men salivating over two women in a shower, or busty women exposing themselves in a courtroom.</p> <p>Danica Patrick is arguably the most famous female race car driver, and her image is one of a sexy, determined woman who can play with the boys. Godaddy.com has decided to use her in an ad that features young men who, with the help of godaddy.com &quot;can make anything happen&quot; online, wish to see Patrick shower multiple times a day. </p> <p>&quot;Suddenly, I have the urge to take another shower... this is my fifth shower today.&quot; Patrick says while dropping her robe and stepping into a glass shower to wash her hair. The guys then decided to add Miss Schmidt, the &quot;German woman from the dean's office,&quot; and viewers see a sexy blonde pop up in the shower with Patrick.</p> <p>The second ad is a spoof on the Major League Baseball players who testified before Congress about steroid use. The ad features multiple sexy women who declare before a congressional committee that they have not &quot;enhanced.&quot; Patrick then admits she has &quot;enhanced&quot; her image with godaddy.com. After Patrick's confession, a busty brunette exclaims, &quot;I'll show you enhanced,&quot; and begins to strip what little clothing is on her breasts before the commercial abruptly ends. </p> <p>GoDaddy.com, a website for internet users to purchase domain names, has been known to do some risqué advertising to get attention. Last year, an ad featuring Patrick was <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/DanicaPatrickCommercial/">similarly rejected</a> because of a double entendre involving beavers.</p> <p>NBC nixes a controversial vegetable ad, but will allow the controversial GoDaddy.com ads to run. &quot;Standards&quot; aren't supposed to be selectively applied.</p>
