SNL’s Passive-Aggressive “Pelotaunt” Commercial Is Made For Anyone Who Hates Peppy Workouts

Fitness

I’m all for an energetic coach or motivational at-home YouTube workouts, but every so often, I’m not in the mood for someone else’s pep. If I come to a workout with a five energy level and the instructor greets me with a 1,005, it’ll take all my strength to not turn around, walk away, and crawl back in bed. Clearly, the writers at Saturday Night Live feel similarly, and they’ve infused those vibes into a hilarious sketch poking fun at Peloton specifically.

During Feb. 13’s episode, SNL cast members Kate McKinnon, Bowen Yang, Ego Nwodim, Beck Bennett, and more imagine a world where “Pelotaunt” instructors try to humiliate and, by default, motivate exercise bike users. “I feel mentally broken down, but hey, I can see my abs,” Bennett quips. The skit certainly resonated with viewers online, who joked they’d try out the Pelotaunt IRL — we’ll unpack what that means later, I guess. In the meantime, check out the unfortunately funny skit in full above.
