Sherri Shepherd has some advice for hubbies looking to whip their wives in shape for the holidays with the help of a new Peloton — go for diamond earrings instead, pal.
We talked to the comedian Tuesday night about Peloton’s new severely mocked ad — in which a wife documents the highs and lows of her fitness journey a year after her husband gifted her the workout bike for Xmas. It’s hilariously awkward.
Sherri’s take on the spot — that might be why she’s single. She mockingly said who wouldn’t love a bike instead of diamonds and jewelry. Sherri added, she wishes a future husband would buy her a Peloton … but you have to see HOW she says it.
If you haven’t heard the criticism so far, the general idea is that this fake TV husband is pretty freakin’ tone-deaf with his gift. As for the wife … well, people think she’s not all there either with how gung-ho she seems to be about the suggestive surprise.
The criticism has hurt the company’s bottom-line too — its stock price dropped about 6 percent on Tuesday.
Sherri’s got a hilarious explanation about why husbands should accept their significant others for who they are. Fellas, before you order that bike … at least listen to her take. Could save ya in the long run.
