Peloton lost $1.5 billion in value after releasing this commercial. Here’s the ad:
People are calling it everyting from stupid and sexist to a dystopian nightmare.
A Peloton ad has made clear
Just what it can do in a year.
The Pelaton wife
Has a beautiful life
And a general aura of fear.

Nothing says “maybe you should lose a few pounds” like gifting your already rail thin life partner a Peloton pic.twitter.com/E2M9gFdD5A

The only way to enjoy that Peloton ad is to think of it as the first minute of an episode of Black Mirror

Love putting my Peloton bike in the most striking area of my ultra-modern $3 million house

Look I don’t want to be “The Peloton Ad Guy” anymore but the newest commercial about the vlogging 116 lb woman’s YEARLONG fitness journey to becoming a 112 lb woman who says “I didn’t realize how much this would change me” is just ri-god-damn-diculous. Come on.
