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.

I had a wife who was obsessed with being slim and cool. she had no personality at all. The marriage didn't last very long.
Guess where my brains were ?

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!!!
