By now, you’ve probably seen the Peloton commercial where the appreciative wife makes a video of her year’s long journey using the stationary bike her husband gave her last Christmas. Social media has been having a field day with the advertisement titled “The Gift That Gives Back.” Some people are calling the commercial “sexist,” “humiliating” and “misogynistic.” One person tweeted, Nothing says “maybe you should lose a few pounds” like giving your rail-thin life partner a Peloton.” Another person tweeted, “Hands up if the Peloton Christmas ad made you sick in your mouth a little bit AND resolve never to be “that guy” in a relationship.” What are your feelings about the commercial?
