Via AV Club:
When looking for the perfect gift, it’s important to pick something that will rend the recipient’s mind asunder. A pair of slippers or a good book may be welcome in the moment, but before long they’ll be forgotten. A truly exceptional gift, on the other hand, inspires equal parts terror and wonder—it should be awesome in the full meaning of the word.

As a new commercial from Peloton makes clear, one of the best ways to accomplish this goal is to give your loved ones stationary bikes that hold them hostage for at least a year of anxiety-soaked daily exercise.

Very much gives me Black Mirror vibes. At least it's honest. Right?

Lock if old.

It's a very good ad tbh. Y'all might not like it but you are 100% not the target for this.

I saw it and didn't like it. Yesterday I saw the Huffington post article about the tweets bashing it and immediately related to all of the tweets. Didn't realize everyone else thought it was ridiculous as I did.

I hate this commercial, as does my wife. She just yells, "You're already skinny bitch!" whenever it plays.

Yeah I'm confused at the sudden uptick in people talking about it, it's been on tv for a while now and I never thought twice about it. Especially the people who spout vitriol because she's already skinny? You can be skinny and not have good cardio or strong leg muscles, why is exercise not something they should aspire to do?
