Told you so

It's a classic—albeit fairly rare—tale: someone has an idea for a business. Their friends, families and potential investors tell them it's ridiculous. A few years later, it's a runaway success. And if that happens to you, a new ad for the oft-controversial domain name company GoDaddy via Barton F Graf shows how inspirational business owners should react with humility and grace. 

It's also released another ad about an inspirational business owner showing some enthusiastic familial celebrations.
