  1. I thought the commercial was stupid, but never saw it as sexist. Instead it's just incredibly silly to see a healthy looking, in shape woman "get nervous" riding a stationary bike in her own home. Then it's funny because she looks the same after a year. Tack on the usual "film myself" selfie culture that plagues us and you have a ridiculous commercial. However I knew that the actress would get the most roast when she merely just read the script, so good for Mr. Pool putting a halt to the viral onslaught this poor woman probably endured.

  2. I was a professional cyclist and spin teacher, this gift would have put me over the moon!! The people who think this is sexist need to do some serious soul searching. What's the button it pushed and why?

  3. I'll tell you what is wrong with the commercial lazy are mad because they are miserable but don't want to do anything about it so let us make something out of nothing

  4. I think the whole thing was blown out of proportion – people seeing malice where there is none. Reynolds was quick to grab the opportunity to diffuse the situation in a way, and for that he is a genius 🙂 I would love to see Monica Ruiz in some movies next year! She is super pretty!
    And I can't wait for more of Ryan Reynolds stuff! His sense of humor is right up my alley! 🙂

  5. Very sloppy TODAY. You reported that Peloton lost $1 Billion. Really? That commercial caused them to lose that much money? And how? Did they lose a bunch of sales? What you're saying is the company's stock price declined and caused their MARKET CAP to decline $1 Billion. Again, very sloppy. Get the facts straight please. You should issue a correction.

    There's nothing wrong with a husband giving his wife a stationary bike or any other fitness apparatus. Look through your thread for this video, it's obviously a good gift based on feedback.

  6. We live in a nation of overweight/obese adults who think that the only reason people workout is to lose weight. Working out can mean SO much more than just weight loss!

  7. A couple years ago Peloton aired a commercial before Christmas that featured a woman finding the bike hidden in the garage by her husband who had bought it for her for a Christmas gift.She starts using the bike secretly while Queen’s Crazy little thing called love played.No one said anything about that commercial.So after seeing that commercial this one didn’t bug me that much.Yes,the reaction is too much but women have had so much pressure put in them concerning their weight I understand to a point.

  8. I absolutely cannot w/ some of these ppl🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️! How is the commercial sexists🤨😒🙄?

  9. Monica is really pretty and adorable also has a great smile maybe the commercial will open up other opportunities for her.Why just because you are thin you should not still exercise what is wrong with that?Monica do your thing go make it happen get tough skin because success requires it.

  10. A lot of mental illness is cured through working out! Endorphins are released in the brain to make u feel content! Dont think its a problem with a husband caring about his spouse fitness and mental health! #toosensitiveaboutotherpplsbusiness #helpachildleavegrownupsalone

  11. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😂😂😂❤❤❤I loved it all. The peloton, the backlash, the responses, the light heartedness, the silent majority isn't in camps we are just quiet people and we loved it all. so well handled lol🥂💕⭐

  12. It’s all the LAZY, FAT people who do not appreciate the message behind the advertisement. The “me too” (a.k.a. LAZY & FAT) movement has completely gone bonkers!!!

  13. Honest to God what stands out to me the most is the rushed, anxious pace of the commercial mixed with her manic energy as well. It feels weird and uncanny but it’s not an attack on women even though it does make me feel weird.

  14. Well before this commercial aired wasn’t it a well known fact that giving your wife ANY exercise machine was just another way of telling her she’s fat? Guess Pelaton was ignorantly unaware of this taboo.

  15. Call it what it is ‘fit shaming’. She cares about her health and wants to balance health and family time… and that’s criticized? I would like to see the people’s faces doing this criticizing however they hide behind their keyboards and smack talk because they can’t stand to see another women who is more happy and attractive than them. If he bought her a BMW or Lexus it wouldn’t be a controversy.

  16. I watch the show this morning and I think it's because her too so what it is your husband gave you an actor sizing bite for Christmas peace are making such a big deal over it you go girl👍👍👍👍👍 and you keep doing what you're doing. But down style that you're doing you keep doing what you're doing don't let them stop what you're doing

  17. I repeatedly suggested to Peloton in emails to them that they should double down and go with the slogan " Peloton. Keep in Tight" but I have yet to hear back.

  18. So when is it appropriate to have a excessive machine commercial? Apparently getting it for an already fit looking lady gets people offended, give it to and overweight chick then? NOPE the world be set on fire. So apparently you cant buy any type of exercise equipment for anyone or else…… This just shows how offended people get over nothing. Lose lose situation and it's sad really.

  19. There’s nothing wrong with the ad. Some people just enjoy exercising and staying in shape, haha. Exercise isn’t just for losing weight.

  20. People can be idiots, she probably asked for a exercise machine for fitness not for losing weight. These trouble makers are causing companies to lose money by say stupid things like that. I'd like to know who said all this, what do they look like? Sore spot maybe???

  21. I am neither super thin nor fat. Medium sized. I LOVE my body. And I think my husband loves my body too. If he gave me an exercise bike without asking for it, boy is he in trouble! Also I would be hurt knowing that he wants me to change, my body to change.

  22. People who have a problem with this ad are idiots. Yes, there are women who cycle, and take spin classes, and some of them might enjoy it better in the comfort of their own home instead of at a spin studio. Maybe she wanted to get stronger to keep up with other cycling friends. Point is we don’t know and it’s idiotic to jump to stupid conclusions.

  23. I viewed the ad before all the news against it came out and honestly my takeaway was that the actress in it was really pretty- she has those Disney Princess big eyes that I guess resulted in people thinking she was worried, but I didn’t see it as sexist, I saw it as a Christmas gift. Exercise isn’t all about losing weight, it’s about healthy activities and it can be a great thing to improve mental health to have something to challenge yourself like a peloton. However bad things happen for a reason cause I thought she was a good actress and now she’s blowing up and could book some things bigger than commercials, which is awesome for her

  24. The other idiotic thing we do these days is accuse people of "Cultural appropriation"…. we have too much time on our hands.

  25. I don’t think the ad is sexist, and the Peloton can even save marriages, as long as she keeps it tighter than the babysitter

  26. Would the same people be offended if they received a book for Christmas. Would you question your husbands agenda. Does he think your dumb or does he know you like to read. People need to stop dissecting every little thing. Sometimes reading is just reading. Just like exercising is just exercising.

  27. I love that she left early to go to a children's pageant! She seems like she's got her priorities straight. I feel like most people wouldn't do that but props to her.

  28. The commercial wasn’t offensive, it was just stupid. She looks like she’s in a hostage situation. Lol. Peddle for your life!

  29. People are so sensitive now with everything else that’s going on in the world. We need to just cool off and move on to 2020

  30. Ryan Reynolds is one of the nicest people on Earth. Instead of deepening the divide with his ad, he instead turned it into a light-hearted joke that diluted the situation. He's not just thinking about his company, he's thinking about the world.
