Even the name of the product is arrogant, if not misguided. A product for Yuppie DINCs who have just shy of $3K to drop. Tablet on bike locked in to streaming Peloton classes; no other media. Announcer is effing annoying; copy is effing annoying. Woman in commercial is model Jildou de Jong and has no kids; commercial shows two. Multi-million dollar home in the Hamptons.

And...there is NO FOOD on the table for breakfast...just some Halo mini-tangerines.   Mama is too busy in her self-indulgent "me time" to shop for food or cook breakfast for the little kiddies - and Dad is just sitting on his can doing nothing either  - he's equally repellant.   I hate this sweaty anorexic freak and her gelding spouse (who sleeps in his t-shirt) in their "perfect perfection".  Just - ewwww.

Yet more ads for this thing...

Imagine how much REAL bicycle you could buy for three THOUSAND dollars, and all the REAL places you could peddle it? Then, you wouldn't have to listen to the fake bike's coach "not going easy on you".

To me, these kind of commercials are the worst.

The ones where they present these stereotypical, idealized versions of what they assume everyone wants to be. Little Miss Perfect Life Yuppie Fashion Model.

And they always seem to be women.

Guys are portrayed as stupid, befuddled morons and amiable dunces.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

One time long ago (say around 2002) I tried a stationary bike at a gym on Winsted Road called Nautilus. It was fun at first for a little while then got old fast!

This ad is not meant to attract the attention of the common, work-a-day people that comprise the main part of the United States. This ad is meant for the extremely wealthy, 20-30 somethings who are so self-obsessed that their entire life is made up of "me-time". 
I detest these people.

The same folks that worship shows like Friends, PBS, NPR, Will and Grace, Wayfair, Hipsters, folks who would not think twice about getting poked, prodded and suctioned out. Even if they couldn't bathe for a week and be in pain. The ones who must have the latest anything by Apple and have a 24/7 continuous feed of Sex And The City. The ones who go to Costa Rica in search of the yellow bellied see through sperm froggy. And must be on the A list for the latest overpriced chi chi Buckwheat and Alphalfa Sprout nouveau food trend.

It looks like she spends every waking moment on that thing.  Only taking a break to hydrate.  She spends so much time on her Peloton that her kid tries to do the same thing on her tricycle.

Sorry kid. I wanna be buff have 7% body fat. I'm working on this billionaire who likes trophy wives and a young skinny hard body that gives off that girl sweat smell. By investing time on the Pelatin, my monthly visitor will flow like the super red tide. Harvey, that's the name of the daddy warbucks billionaire gives more money when my high arched feet smell like munster cheese on a hot day and when that hole I pee from smells like the natural foods fish market in July!

You can buy like a million tricycles for the cost of one Peloton!
And probably send each rider, eventually, to college.  Tongue

Well, ol' Thor was a fan of Friends, something I never understood, but I don't think he's a trendy, upscale, yuppie slave to fashion and fads.

And I watch PBS all the time, as does a friend of mine, and neither of us are any of those things either.

I get what you're saying, it's just a couple of your examples weren't spot on.

I think those are just tropes he throws out there.  "Hipster" is his most common one.
