She may have not asked for a Peloton specifically but had regularly complained about having to travel to the gym every morning for her workout and how she missed so many workouts because of it. There are a ton of reasons that a person could have bought a loved one workout equipment without them specifically asking for that brand/model.
Just like a lot of things, people are looking for a reason to be *outraged.
*outraged - one of the most overused/misused terms of the 21st century.
My wife literally asked for this for Christmas
I think there are plenty of wives in the world that are not insecure who would be pissed if their husband bought them exercise equipment for a gift that wasn't something they had either expressed interest in.
I love this part coupled with the "wow am I nervous to get on a piece of workout equipment" part. She somehow has just stayed that fit without making her way to a stationary bike before, apparently.
Wait, you're married?
Whatever. I didn't find it all that offensive, just kind of stupid and deserving of the jokes and parodies at its expense.
It's 2nd to "literally".
Definitely not offensive but it really is a dumb/corny ad. I literally laughed out loud and said what the **** when they showed the husband and wife watching her record herself on her peloton.
maybe this was peloton planting "complaints" to drum up discussion of the peloton????
to Margaret McCaffery
My reaction to the ad was... meh.
But ever since Peleton started advertising my wife and I have been trying to figure out how to re-arrange our furniture so our exercise equipment is the focal point of our living room. NOT. It would be much more realistic if they showed it in the spare bedroom or laundry room.
I'm sick of the other commercial with that "all of the lights" song. Also, I don't understand the $2,300 price tag.
Kind of a James Carville/Mary Matalin thing.
I don't think that's who they're marketing to or what they're trying to sell. I don't think I've ever seen an overweight person in any of their ads. I also don't think I've ever seen an ad where the bike is crammed into a corner of the laundry room or a finished basement or attached garage. It's always perched in a goddamn solarium that's bigger than my kitchen or positioned to look out a floor to ceiling window of a city skyline. They sell fantasy, and it's not like they're the only ones doing it so it's hardly worth getting worked up over.
$2,300 is alot, but I suppose if you look at what people pay for a gym membership that they are probably less likely to use than a bike that's already at home it's not that bad.
I know, my point was that the lady in the ad did not need the bike because she was already looking good.
Yep, my wife loves Carroll/Ankeny
She clearly had an interest in the thing so I'm not sure where you're going with this?
My problem with this ad, and other ones like this is they are always in a HUGE house that most people can't afford, and you are trying to sell a bike that costs like 2500 not including the membership per month, and you use an actress that obviously works out before getting this bike. Not many people can relate to that situation.
