This is probably the best “SNL” skit that I’ve seen in a long time. I’m not a huge fan of the show anymore but this rocks!
If you aren’t a fan of exercising & overly peppy people annoy you, you’ll love this. The “SNL” parody ad, fittingly titled “Pelotaunt,” explored what a Peloton class would look like for someone who doesn’t thrive off of encouraging instructors. What if the instructor was passive aggressive? Would you work harder? I’ll admit it….I think I would!
The spoof commercial describes Pelotaunt as the “only exercise bike that provides you with personalized, at-home negative reinforcement and relentless criticism.” No inspirational speeches, just straight sarcasm. The features of the Pelotaunt are a bit different than those with the Peloton. The Pelotaunt features include gaslighting each rider about how far they’ve gone, an embarrassing soundtrack, and a picture-in-picture of an elderly woman “who’s like a thousand times better than you.”
On Fridays a good laugh is needed and this video fits that category! Enjoy!
