"Happy birthday, fat-###!"

this is one of the best... https://twitter.com/ClueHeywood/status/1089699762331217920

That marriage was never going to end well, but at least we know she got out: https://twitter.com/VancityReynolds/status/1203118775815622664 (Kudos to that gin company for getting out an ad w

Something horrible happened to her on a bike, so that’s why she’s terrified to ride the thing. She didn’t want to hurt her husband’s feelings so she just sucked it up. Soon she became addicted to that adrenaline rush of facing her fears, and other high-risk activities followed. The pills, the random hookups with strangers...but always, the Peloton was there waiting for her afterward. 

Second act is a bit fuzzy but I’m thinking she definitely ends up shooting the husband. Maybe the daughter grows up to be a Peloton instructor.

Pretty sure she caught gonorrhea from the bike seat

Who is to say that's even her daughter?  She could be his hot secretary that he left his wife for a couple years back.  He saw she put on 1.75 lbs and decided he needed to act....fast.

i’m thinking that she came down the stairs expecting his and hers red bowed mercedes’ and instead got this non bowed peloton that apparently runs on tears and fear.  she then decided to passively aggressively torture the husband who noticed she might not be a size zero anymore.  making him sit and watch on the big screen her ride the bike maybe is the biggest FU around, especially since she is stuck having to raise this guy’s daughter from his first non peloton marriage.

Yeah but the drop happened when folks saw that a whole year later, this gal went from slim and trim to, uh, slim and trim. That's where the uproar and anger in this ad lies. It just took this long for people to catch it.

Maybe she was at a healthy weight to start, ate a healthy diet while working out where calories in equaled calories out, maintained a healthy weight while becoming stronger muscularly, improved her cardiovascular health, and is a happier person in general because exercise improves mental health as well? That pretty much sums up my 3 yrs of riding my Peloton - not that far-fetched.

It’s a stupid ad, though trumped by the stupidity of the outrage over it.

Well on normal commercials they usually release this information.  This is how we know how to e-stalk the GMC truck girl, for example.

I used to just know because of the “I need some answers here...” thread, but I’m assuming that got purged because we can no longer ask about the names of attractive actresses here.

if this woman is terrified of riding a 5k bike in her 10mm home, imagine her fear when she realizes non peloton owning FBGs are trying to estalk her....

I can appreciate this guy's proactive approach to making sure his pretty wife doesn't turn into a fat slob.  It's better than waiting until later and telling her she needs to get her big butt in the gym and drop 40.

I actually saw a tweet that said something to the effect of "The wife gets a GD exercise bike while I'm sure that POS bought his whore mistress a Mercedes." :wall:

i think it sends a good message.  Even hot women can become hotter.  

I thought the message was that hotness is a daily battle. Every day you're not working on it, you're losing it.

And when you're losing another girl is gaining on you.

It always ends with raw dogging a juggalo in a porta-potty at an Insane Clown Posse concert

Headline for article in my news feed....

"People are accusing Peloton of peddling negative body image, unchecked privilege, and gross marital dynamics"

In the words of Dave Chappelle, "Word?  I did that?"

Smh

I bought my thin wife a Peloton for Christmas, but only because she specifically asked for it.  I would never volunteer such a thing.

 

We sold it within a month.  I wonder what clothes are hanging on it in the new house right now.

My wife had not heard about the outrage over this commercial... I showed her the commercial on Youtube without telling her anything about what was going on and said after the ad was over... "What did you think of that commercial?".  She said "I want one of those!" :backfire: 🤦‍♂️

When I saw that people were upset over this commercial all I could think was "Have we seriously ran out of things to be outraged about?"

The more I see this commercial, the angrier I get.  This company should be boycotted and the CEO should step down. 

Completely unacceptable.

Name checks out.

Like ending sentences with a preposition!

Wrong

I'm assuming this is an informal conversation in the 21st century and not a research paper or part of time travel.

Having just bought an exercise bike, comments like these make me nervous.
