If you're thinking of getting your wife or husband a workout machine for Christmas, it might be time to second guess that decision. Working out and being fit is for monsters, who only care about themselves and their own images. Just kidding it's totally fine, but don't tell the Internet we said that.
Last night Twitter found a Christmas ad for a new workout bike by the company Peloton and began dunking it on, the only way people know, with memes and ridicule.
The ad incensed so many people and sparked so many Tweets of backlash and hate that the companies stock rose by 5% over night. The ad in question, simple Christmas ad, where a husband gives his wife a workout bike, what could be wrong? Well, for one everything.
Nothing says “maybe you should lose a few pounds” like gifting your already rail thin life partner a Peloton pic.twitter.com/E2M9gFdD5A— Siraj Hashmi (@SirajAHashmi) December 2, 2019
We all need to treasure the things that bring us together as a nation, as a people. Collectively hating on this Peloton ad is that thing. pic.twitter.com/UQtUU4CCQt— Renee Klahr (@reneeklahr) December 2, 2019
Take me down to the Peloton city where the wives are lean and the men are shitty— The Volatile Mermaid (@OhNoSheTwitnt) December 3, 2019
Okay, you get the point right? People hate it, so it must be bad, that's how this works now. Take a watch and see for yourself.
How dare this husband give his "thin" wife a workout bike? How dare he. Don't thin people already have nice bodies? Sounds crazy right? What's more crazy is getting upset about an ad, an ad that isn't real, and has no meaning besides getting you to buy some shitty workout bike, must say something about society, it must. So what it says it men are pigs and thin women only want to be thinner. Or not, maybe it's just an ad and all you upset babies are just that, babies.
Unpopular opinion: the Peloton ad is pretty much just a normal commercial for an exercise bike and the collective freak out over it is way weirder and creepier than the ad itself— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) December 3, 2019
