This is hilarious, the snowflakes are busy eating themselves.


Quote:
Social media users panned the video online, charging that it encourages negative stereotypes and implies that a husband will get a more attractive wife in return for giving her the exercise bike.

One critic tweeted: 'The woman is rail thin already and her a****** husband thinks she's still not thin enough.'

'Nothing says ''Maybe you should lose a few pounds'' like gifting your already rail-thin partner a Peloton,' another wrote.


So, how fat is the wife supposed to be before you send the message with the bike ?

Because 'never', means the company can close up shop.





Or, is this some master marketing at work, by triggering the whiny baby bitches
to get some free publicity ?

I see NOTHING wrong with the ad, I never took it as she needed to loose weight but wanted to improve her fitness. She already looks pretty dam good!

It is better than that.

It is pump and dump. The people who sold the stock when the price was rising will now be able to buy them back at a discount.

Wash, rinse and repeat.

Abolish Twitter and Facebook altogether. And jail any tech CEOs who try to come up with replacements for those platforms. It's the only solution to stopping this insanity.

Peloton 'husband' who gives his wife a stationary bike for Christmas in THAT sexist ad says his friends now call him 'a symbol of the patriarchy', as he now fears for his future as a teacher

Sean Hunter is an actor and school teacher based in Vancouver, British Columbia
Hunter plays the husband in the now-infamous ad for the Peloton workout bike
Ad portrays husband who buys his wife a stationary bike for Christmas
Wife is then seen riding bike frequently for over a year before thanking husband
Hunter says that he was taken aback by the social media backlash against ad
He says friends have called him a 'symbol of the patriarchy'
Hunter worries ad will negatively impact his career as an actor and a teacher



ROTFL

No problem! Easily fixed!
For Valentine's day, the Peloton "wife" will be seen riding somebody else's bike on live tell-a-vision and then the "husband" will be a hero symbol for the trans-canadianarchy!

Stay tuned!

This story was on the news tonight. I don't see anything wrong with the ad either and I don't understand why all the bs over it.

It seems any advertisement for anything to do with fitness always have fit, good-looking people acting in them. The message being "you could look like this too if you buy/use our product". It's just marketing so why take it so seriously?

A wise man told me once to never buy a woman these as a gift...
...anything cooking related
...anything cleaning related
...anything losing weight related

Tempted to buy her a she shed this year to keep all those kitchen appliances and cleaning devices we've accumulated over the years.

The 9 yr old and I fenced 5 acres with a hand digger, packed hay bales to and from, while the ex was in the basement on her exersize machines. Pedalling to nowhere, but wouldn't take the kids out on their bikes. Rowing like a fool but wouldn't go in the canoe.
Daughter finally figured out that elliptical thing is just a heavy expensive space eating ornament.
Screw you. Women buy these things because they think they're fat. If you buy her one, she'll know you do too.

Sounds like they’re going broke because they WEREN'T woke. :D

Usually it’s the husband who is the out of shape fatty in the relationship and needs to lose weight, while the the wife is the one trying to get the husband to exercise. Does that angle not sell or something?
