Thumbs Up

I'll probably give this commercial its own thread, I want to thank Planet Fitness for making fun of the idiot Peloton riders!


Probably a good idea...there are SO MANY Peloton (and Nordic Track, etc.) haters out there!  We need a special platform for all of them.

Thank God the 'Our Kind of Joy' commercial is gone till next year.  Kanye can just go suck balls!

The rich, emaciated woman can just go ahead screw the pool boy!

NOW!  Why is there always some black guy yelling or singing in these commercials?

Wasn't it some football prognosticator who was fired for calling 'blacks' better athletes?

I hate Peloton with a passion!




I HATE AngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngry this asshole! It's literally an insta-mute every single time I see that camera panning up the stairwell. And when he goes into that falsetto....I'd love to just bash his face with a hammer. I know we have other races who do stupid things too...but this is why blacks are generally criticized for their race. This guy fits in the same category as the blacks who get arrested on Cops and the entire time they're "What'd I do maaan? Come on mannnn! I'm innocent bruh!" Dead

Or better yet, a real bicycle or decent pair of walking/running sneakers and the streets of your neighborhood.

All this high tech gizmo crap is meant appeal to the same people who waste tons of money on the latest smartphone and also the attendant gizmo accessories that go with it.

I'm offended with this commercial...not because it's sexist (I didn't see that)...but the commercial just eats!

Like how "Custer's Revenge" on Atari offended many people...not just Native Americans and Women...but gamers who played the game hated this...and both parents and The Religious Right got offended because the game is X-Rated.

But I'd prefer a Mellotron over a Pelotron...then I can play these gems...

Just for kicks, wait until say, mid January through late february and scan ebay, craigslist, let go, and all those other places for suckers trying to sell these monstrosities and expecting to get more than $200 for a purchase that cost them in excess of $2200!
Want to really rub their noses in their stupidity? make an offer of like $10!

Weather OK I walk or ride my bike. I have never owned a stationary bike. Now it's December. 38F and raining. I drug my Nordic Track out today. I think it was about $150 in 1995.

These are legitimately some of the most insufferable god damn commercials I've ever seen. A stationary bike is a f**king stationary bike. You could find a serviceable stationary bike at pretty much any thrift store, garage/yard sale or swap meet and most likely for dirt cheap. People are ALWAYS trying to get rid of these things once the New Year's resolution wears off and they decide they like cheeseburgers more than being able to see their toes. You could mount a small TV or a cheap monitor to one very f**king easily. Or just place your stationary bike in an orientation so that it faces your already purchased, currently existing television. Better yet, you could buy a real god damned bicycle and go ride that.

There's something so smarmy, narcissistic and preachy about these god damned commercials. Especially the one with the woman taking 'video logs' daily of her god damned Peloton adventures. Not a god damned soul cares. I can guarantee wholeheartedly with absolute certainty that nobody outside of your immediate family gives a single iota of a f**k about you riding a god damn stationary bike every day. Your immediate family [including your clueless nitwit husband] only put up with it because they don't want to hurt your feelings, in particular, said clueless nitwit husband puts up with it because he dropped 1000+ on the damned thing and he wants to continue getting laid. He probably thinks it's stupid too but he has more money than sense.

Not only that, but the whole: "I can't believe how much this changed my life!" bullsh*t at the end. You look exactly the same as when you started. You were already in pretty good shape. This stationary bike didn't change jack sh*t other than you became a sanctimonious insufferable moron in the interval.

Also, who the f**k needs a trainer or instructor to ride a f**king stationary bike? Have you considered *going outside* perhaps? Maybe purchasing a real god damned bicycle which will also be a mode of transportation and might be useful behind inflating your already gargantuan ego? You're paying upwards of $2000 for the bike and 50-70 bucks a month as a 'subscription' so you can peddle a fake bike and compete with other gormless thalidomide morons doing the same bullsh*t?

Two thousand dollars can get you a god damned CADILLAC of a touring bike. And eventually these Instagram idiots will get bored of it and move on to something else, then that two thousand dollar 'investment' becomes an obstruction or perhaps a coat/hat rack if it's lucky. More than likely after a month it'll get shoved into a side room, basement or garage and have a bunch of other sh*t lumped around it whilst it gathers dust.

Western culture is just beautiful. Get a real bike and go outside and ditch social media. The entire world does not need to be appraised via Internet of how far you rode on a fake bicycle every day, they don't give a sh*t and neither does anyone else.
 

I had a comment to make, but I can never top this.

I don't see the fat-shaming angle. I see a narcissistic, Instagraming Influencer or whatever those idiots call themselves, if you don't have a Peloton you're not worthy message.

The moral of the story...Jimbo can piss people off without even trying to! Wink

Don't ever change, we all have our own way to roll!

I think maybe he's in love with me.

Or maybe he's friends with that "cornhole" guy, or whatever his name was.

WE WON! (sort of)
Just saw on Stephen Colbert's show that internet response to this commercial is so bad their stock plummeted. It lost almost $1 BILLION (yes, billion with B) in the past week or so.
Maybe they'll learn now.
Colbert ran the ad and the studio audience sounded like they were dying!

The song is actually perfect for the bullsh*t message Peloton wants to send.  The guy who wrote the song must have a pretty low self esteem.

"She's So High"[/B



She's blood, flesh and bone

No tucks or silicone

She's touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound

But somehow I can't believe

That anything should happen

I know where I belong

And nothing's going to happen, yeah



'Cause she's so high

High above me

She's so lovely

She's so high

Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite

Da da-da da da

She's so high

High above me



First class and fancy free

She's high society

She's got the best of everything

What could a guy like me

Ever really offer?

She's perfect as she can be

Why should I even bother?

'Cause she's so high

High above me

She's so lovely

She's so high

Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite

Da da-da da da

She's so high

High above me



She calls to speak to me

I freeze immediately

'Cause what she says sounds so unreal

'Cause somehow I can't believe

That anything should happen

I know where I belong

And nothing's going to happen, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah



'Cause she's so high

High above me

She's so lovely

She's so high

Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite, oh yeah

She's so high

High above me

People can be outraged all they want, but the bottom line is Peloton marketing has been cringe worthy and stupid ever since they started advertising. I didn’t read into fat shaming the skinny so much I did narcissist rich idiots.
