ICYMI, Peloton just put out their holiday commercial, and to say it's a bit cringe-worthy is an understatement.
To be fair, getting an expensive piece of exercise equipment would be a nice gift. That said, the execution of the script is a little more Sleeping with the Enemy than White Christmas. Twitter has come for Peloton, and the results are hilarious.
Before we dive in, here's the full-length commercial, in all of its glory:
Some of the clapbacks are logical ...
... while others were a bit harsh.
For the most part, the tweets express concern for the poor wife in the commercial.

Husband: Get her a #peloton for the holidays with lots of athleisure-wear so she knows I don’t care what she wears, as long as she stays in shape.

I mean, seriously, is no one running these ads by normal people?
One thing's for certain, the majority of folks tweeting about it really don't like the ad.
