We need to talk about this Peloton ad. While the internet can sometimes be a tacky hellscape, it can also do a great job assuring us that we are not alone. Much like finding out every woman in my generation had the same vague, too-young-to-understand horniess for the fox in Disney’s Robin Hood, this week Twitter taught me that I wasn’t the only one weirded out by the ever-terrified Peloton ad wife. Now look, she probably asked for that bike (because WHAT HUSBAND WOULD DO THAT UNPROMPTED?) but why is she so goddamned scared to… ride a bike? How does an already fit woman becoming slightly fitter qualify as a life-changing milestone? Congrats on finally having the ability to quit your real job to be a fitness influencer, but keep the over-the-top confessionals to Instagram. That doesn’t need to be played on a big TV in the desperate hope of securing the unnecessary approval of your so-so husband, a Xander if I ever saw one.
Anyway, here’s this week’s funniest tweets including a much more accurate rendition of the bougie bike ad.
