Danica Patrick Bulks Up For New GoDaddy Super Bowl Commercial

My, Danica, what big everything you have! The better to film Super Bowl commercials with, my dear.

Danica Patrick gets into a muscle suit to film a Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial. The race car driver wore neon green body shorts and a sports bra over her muscle girl suit on Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013.

Those who like Danica just the way she is need not worry: The new physique is only temporary. It's a 75-pound muscle suit Patrick donned while shooting a new commercial for her sponsor, GoDaddy.

The ad, which apparently features a segment of Patrick jogging down a street surrounded by similarly bulked-up men, will debut at the Super Bowl, reports Fox Sports.

In contrast to earlier commercials for GoDaddy, which have included Patrick and other women in various states of undress, ad executives appear to be changing tactics this year. Barb Rechterman, chief marketing officer at GoDaddy, told USA Today, "The women you'll see in our Super Bowl commercials this year will be super-smart, successful small-business owners."
