What’s Up With That Peloton Commercial?

  • Published on Dec 4, 2019
  • It’s the commercial that launched 1,000 memes. Exercise bike maker Peleton released a holiday commercial showing a husband gifting his thin wife with the bicycle. The internet has reacted swiftly and they are not happy with the mesaage they say the ad implies. “Message received: Ladies, exercise harder/be thinner for your man and then thank him for it,” one user wrote. Perhaps the most popular parody is from a comedian who decides a divorce is the perfect response to the present.

      In all reality almost nobody is offended but the news only reports on the few that's our and makes it look like everyone is offended. No news story here.

      @Billy Yonet the person I said that to was saying it was a conservative thing. My point entire point was that it's not politics so way to catch on. The real cringey thing here is you because I've seen you comment about 5 or 6 different times here and everytime you say the video is cringey. THAT'S cringey.

      Padraig Murphy - this has nothing to do with politics you freaking fools!
      It’s just a stupid badly made commercial spot.
      It’s cringy....

    Don't give the haters attention. They thrive off it. Just let them be miserable in their own life. I'm glad I'm not pathetically nasty by blaming my problems on others. Some people just don't grow up. Oh well.

    She weighs 80 pounds just what is her husband going for? She would have to tease the hair on her ass to hold her pants up. If you want to make it believable swoop down to earth and scoop up one that weighs 250 just run by any fast food place and you can have your pick now that would be believable.

    Ok, but did anyone think that she wanted it?? Maybe she had wanted one for a long time, but she didn’t want to spend all that money on it. Because her expression when she got it was happy.

    Go look at the little picture on Alodia's "Our New House?!?" video - she's a real (wealthy, media-savvy) person who does her own self-promoting videos. Is that look of mock alarm familiar? We seem to be losing the ability to read the media for what it is, and what it pretends to represent - the real world.

    I mean, that's a pretty cool looking bike. I would make the joke with my significant other that he's calling me fat by getting me a workout bike, but that's it.
    Seriously. It has a tv. Lol. I don't know the workout bike standard, but that's pretty nice imo. I get how some people can be triggered. But, America's second language is sarcasm, so I can only assume that was the point of the negative comments.

    We all know the real reason why Peloton made this commercial. Because most fitness girls nowadays on social media like to record them selves working out in yoga pants and showing their butts on a daily basis.

    If a woman buys her husband tools, does that mean he's a lazy bastard? No, it does not and the same goes for this commercial. Buying your wife a peloton is not a way of fat-shaming her.

    The only thing stupid in this commercial is the facial expression on a poor actress. Women tend to get offended at everything because thats how you get political leverage.

    Maybe she had talked with him about wanting to workout more or something about an exercise bike and that's why he got it. Some people need to grow up and stop getting offended over every little thing.

    Meanwhile, the new commercial with the black guy listening and rocking out to Lauren Hill (who doesn't like white people listening to her music, forgot about that one, didn't ya, libtards) is ok? I think peleton did this on purpose just to prove a point


    It’s funny the marketing shift to markets that don’t buy their expensive toys
    I guess they will figure it out eventually

    Omgosh maybe she asked for it. Or hinted for it. I have a friend that told her husband that she wanted exercise equipment for Christmas last year so that is what he bought her.. . Come on people. Stop being stupid

  • Jodi Phillips
    Jodi Phillips 13 days ago

    ummm....I would love a peloton, you don't have to be overweight to want exercise equipment, not once did I get the sense he gave her this to lose weight, did anyone think that maybe she could have asked for one? or didn't feel comfortable going to spin classes but really wanted to do them? If I woke up to a Peloton I'd be ecstatic

    Ridiculous! There is nothing wrong with this commercial. I enjoy exercising. My husband got me a treadmill for Christmas and I was thrilled! The only time we’re willing to splurge like that!
    And I do work to keep my weight down. Its good for you!
