Following Peloton’s viral ad from earlier this year, one would think a stationary bike would NOT be on anyone’s Christmas wish lists.

But actor Sean Hunter, who starred as the “Peloton Husband” in the ad, announced that he actually got his real-life girlfriend a Peloton bike for Christmas.

“Here’s hoping this goes over better the second time…. Merry Christmas to my actual girlfriend (pls don’t leave me),” Hunter said in an Instagram post on Christmas Day.

Hunter’s gift comes just weeks after the company received backlash for its latest campaign. In it, Hunter plays the non-speaking role of a husband who buys his wife a Peloton bike for Christmas. As the ad continues, the wife documents a year’s worth of selfie videos of herself using the bike.

In the end, as the husband and wife duo sit down and watch her journey on the TV, she thanks her husband for changing her life.

After premiering in November, the ad received a lot of backlash for what many called “cringeworthy” and sexist elements.
