Tonight, I heard of this story for the first time. As I was flipping past something I figured would be boring I heard the word “peloton”. Since I avidly follow the Tour, I clicked back and saw that the company that makes the Peloton exercise bike, which connects you to other riders via the internet to form a riding group, a “peloton”, has a commercial that made lib heads explode. Of course I had to see what was up.
It seems that the bad guy, of course a man, in this commercial is an evil sexist. Why? He bought his wife this nefarious oppressing exercise bike. Apparently, that means he is sinister-…ly forcing her into a certain body type and, naturally, blind obedience.
Watch how oppressed she is and feel the rage build.
Okay… maybe you didn’t feel the rage. But libs do. They’re even attacking the male actor, who appears for about 2 seconds.
Frankly, it seems to me that she liked the bike and wanted the bike and used the bike because she liked and wanted it. How twisted is that?!? Still, she seems rather determined. I suspect that she would have told him to get lost if he suggested she was spending too much time on the bike. Mind control?
I feel so manipulated that I want a bike too!
As a matter of fact, the music in the background suggests that he has a pretty high regard for her. Or is it my imagination?
‘Cause she’s so high
High above me
She’s so lovely
She’s so high
Joan of Arc
Maybe it was that “Da-da-da-da-da” set off the libs.
It’s … code. In Morse it could mean any number of things. Who can crack it?
Well… maybe it’s something else.
In any event, the tide has definitely turned against men.
These sexist ads! Not like the good old days.
Next time, pal, just buy her the washing machine.
