The Peloton commercial that's driving people crazy

A guy gets his wife a Peloton for Christmas, while the lady in the ad is thrilled - a number of people are ticked that a guy would get his lady exercise equipment for Christmas.

Among those unhappy? "Cosmopolitan" magazine. They’ve decided if you get a “thoughtful” gift like a Peloton bike for Christmas, they say you should reply with a gift like one of these:

  • A virtual golf game
  • Boxers that are too snug
  • A toupee
  • A detox meal delivery service
  • Expensive anti-aging creams
  • A gym membership
  • A designer handbag
  • A hatchet
  • Two tickets for an artist you love but he can’t stand
  • “The Essential Cookbook For Men: 85 Healthy Recipes To Get Started In The Kitchen”
  • Spanx for men

But for the record? Peloton says the peeved people out there completely misinterpreted the ad. "We constantly hear from our members how their lives have been meaningfully and positively impacted after purchasing or being gifted a Peloton Bike or Tread, often in ways that surprise them," a Peloton spokesperson says in a statement to CNN. "Our holiday spot was created to that fitness and wellness journey."
