PHOENIX (CBS5) -

One United States employer will be in a for a huge surprise during the first quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

One of that person's employees will submit her formal resignation letter and give two weeks' notice - all on national television.

The employee will be the focus of a new GoDaddy commercial in which she will quit her real job to pursue her dream and start a new business, according to a GoDaddy news release.

The ad is part of GoDaddy's new advertising strategy to highlight Website Builder & Get Found products, which focus on helping very small businesses leverage the internet to grow their bottom line, according to the release.

The woman will be introduced by actor John Turturro, and only the people involved with the commercial production and the woman's father know her identity, according to the release.

Her boss will learn who the employee is along with about 100 million other viewers when the commercial airs toward the end of the first quarter of the Super Bowl.

The commercial is the second of two GoDaddy spots scheduled for the Super Bowl.

In the first, a "buffed up" Danica Patrick stars in a commercial that highlights a tanning salon. That spot will air toward the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter, according to the release.

Both commercials were directed by Bryan Buckley, who has directed a number of Super Bowl commercials, and produced by Deutsch, NY.

This will be GoDaddy's 10th consecutive Super Bowl campaign. Patrick has been featured in 13 different Super Bowl ads by GoDaddy, which is more than any other person in Super Bowl history, according to the release.
