Peloton goes viral for all the wrong reasons. These some of the funniest memes inspired by their holiday ad.
No other meme this week had the level of innovation found in reactions to an unintentionally disturbing Peloton ad. Responses to this awkward commercial range from bitchy comments to one truly hilarious spoof.
Have you seen this thing? The commercial, featuring a woman who seems downright unworthy of a stationary bike that her partner got her for Christmas, is a very puzzling video coming from a company that already has puzzling marketing.
To make the ad even worse, the woman vlogs her year-long experience with the bike and how it changed her life. Mmmmkay.
If you think about it, it’s a great gift. Who wouldn’t want to own a $2,000 Peloton bike equipped with a small TV? If you think about it some more, the cracks in the ad become obvious because, who in their right mind would want their husband to give them a workout machine for Christmas? That is just asking for a divorce.

The terror in her eyes is chilling. There’s something seriously wrong in this relationship. https://t.co/33VYzjwgor

So sweet. My husband was inspired by the Peloton ad to get me a pair of pants in a child’s medium and a handwritten note that says “Don’t fucking touch me till you can fit into these”

🎶 Take me down to the Peloton city where the wives are lean and the men are shitty 🎶

Nothing says “maybe you should lose a few pounds” like gifting your already rail thin life partner a Peloton pic.twitter.com/E2M9gFdD5A
