Somewhere, Leonardo DiCaprio is… jealous?
A new Go Daddy commercial, set to air during Sunday’s CBS broadcast of the Super Bowl, has Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli – Leo’s ex – locking lips and swirling tongues with “Walter,” a chubby Go Daddy tech geek played by Jesse Heiman. The commercial contains 11 of the single most awkward seconds you’ll ever experience.
And it’s riveting. Brace yourselves.
Sure, Nerd Nation will celebrate as geeks around the world finally scratch “Make Out With a Sports Illustrated Cover Model” off their collective bucket lists. And there may even be some haters out there who find this kind of model/nerd tongue tie-up blasphemous. But our concern is different.
Now, we know Jews are charitable people, but come on! Thanks a lot, Bar. You’ve set the charity “bar” to unattainable heights. What are Jews supposed to do now to fulfill their destiny as “repairers of the world” (tikkun olam)? Make out with every loveable loser they can get their hands on?
Well if this is the new reality, we say embrace it. So with that in mind, here are some other lip-locks-for-charity-cases we’re proud to say are part of the new Jewish narrative:

Sadly, only one of the above smooches led to a sustained relationship, so we’re not too optimistic Jesse Heiman will see this kiss through to… well… something more.
But guess what story he’s going to tell his grandkids one day!
