    I read about this controversy yesterday....my take: people got too much damn time on their hands. Making matters weirder, apparently Peleton takes heat in general for m@rketing to rich people. Who the hell else is gonna buy one? It seem far more irresponsible to m@rket them to poor people. People need to take their damn pitchforks & shove em up their asses.

    The woman reminds me of Emmy Rossum.

    Hey mods, can we please be allowed to write posts with the word m@rketing in it using an actual a?

    Getting offended is an American way of life for some.

    Should be able to already. Don't know of anything that would deter it unless our spam filter is picking up on it by mistake

    Our PC liberal country is unhappy that a beautiful woman could have so much in life.
    And of course she looks the same after a year on her bike....she's hot.
    Much rather keep my woman happy with a $2000 Peloton than a $100,000 Tesla.
    Don't hate. Just celebrate.

    maybe it's b/c you are a mod. But I have been blocked 3 times on this thread alone. Just now I tried to post the word as you did & was denied.

    edit 4 times! b/c i tried to quote your post

    For some reason it is picking up on your use of it. I'll report it.

    Without tv, I get to avoid the “pleasure” of commercials. I do see pop up ups for peloton on some of my online platforms.
    Never understood why someone would choose to exercise inside. Had to do it for most of my 20’s, avoid it at all costs now.

    Did they? I read a little bit about the internet drama today and watched the ad ... didn't think it was that bad. I thought a good spoof of the ad would be the woman leaving her husband at the end because now she was too hot for him and he gives insulting gifts....

    I'm not saying SNL did not do one but as I search the internet, I cannot find it. There is a skit about the SoulCycle that SNL did earlier this year. The only parody video I seen is this one:

    Stupid stupid. No way I’d give my wife anything remotely interpreted to mean she better move her ass. It’s not sexist, it’s suicide.

    Actually I didn’t mind it at all. Being thin isn’t being healthy dummies. I’d have made a commercial where she can’t keep up with her neighbor “friend” who she really can’t stand but fakes it. Neighbor patronizes her after bike ride “it’s ok boomer”. Loving hot husband gives her a bike (wearing no shirt cooking dinner) and says, “kick her ass”. A year later she kicks neighbors ass “it’s ok F-er”. [commercial cuts off to music before it gets out of her mouth].

    Yeah it didn't bug me as much as it did others. I understand that it's a commercial like Bow Flex so to see a year gone by and she hasn't changed is no different than seeing any other exercise product that features buff people. They could have done it better by saying she wanted it for Christmas not making it look like her husband thought she needed it.
