$1:
The show apparently got permission from the company for the product placement, but the company didn't know the context of the appearance.



And that is why you ask. Muppets. :roll:

Remind me to never buy "pay now" and "pay forever" products like Peleton.

Don't buy 'smart' TVs or those talking personal spies assistants either.

My phone has voice recognition, I think... never used it.
My TV cable controller has it too... never used it.

Yeah, I'm in the market for a new exercise bike and there's no way in hell I'd ever buy a Peloton with their monthly subscription BS.

But everything seems to be moving towards that shitty 'pay forever, own nothing' model, from software to movies to music, etc., and if some people have their way, it'll happen with cars and a ton of other things too.

Sorry, but I want a DVD and my own car and my own stuff, not some BS on demand digital crap. Guess I'm old...

^^^

If I rent it, it's not mine. If I pay for it, it's mine. If I can't use it after I buy it, it's theirs.

Pretty quick on the damage control



It's silly how fiction can tank real world products. The same thing happened after a Crock Pot fire killed a beloved character on This Is Us a few years back.

Let's go Pelotron
Makes me puke when I see that commercial. Reminds me of being married. Buy a hobby farm, she insists daughter needs a pony.
Rest of the summer spent had fencing 5 acres, digging holes with stupid fence digger, hauling poles, stretching fencing & barb wire with a jack-strap. Hauling and pitching bales of hay...
while she 'got in shape' in 1980s sweats, pink sweatband, Jane Fonda tapes on these stupid bikes that went nowhere... in the fucking basement...
