What is the Peloton ad with Chris Noth?
Ever since the debut of Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That…, on Thursday, December 9, 2021, the exercise equipment and workout company Peloton has been a trending topic.
Main character of the show, Carrie Bradshaw, married Mr. Big at the end of the first Sex and the City spin-off film.
Big – whose name on the show is actually John James Preston – made a brief appearance on the reboot before dying from a heart attack after riding his Peloton bike with fictional instructor Allegra, played by real-life instructor Jess King.
On Sunday, December 12, 2021, Peloton released a new ad featuring the actor behind Big – Chris Noth – and Jess King.
“To new beginnings,” Noth says to King.
She responds: “To new beginnings.”
“You look great,” King said. Noth responds: “I feel great.”
“Should we take another ride? Life is too short not to,” Noth continues, before the camera pans to two Peloton bikes.
A voiceover from actor Ryan Reynolds at the end of the ad states: “And just like that the world is reminded regular cycling stimulates and improves your heart, lungs and circulation reducing your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
“Cycling strengthens your heart muscles, lowers resting pulse and reduces blood fat levels. He’s alive.”
The ad has since been removed amidst the sexual assault allegations against Noth.
The Hollywood reporter revealed that Noth has since denied the claims in a statement.
He has called the claims “categorically false.” He said, in part, “These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual.”
Why did Peloton remove the Chris Noth ad?
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter the cycling company addressed the removal of the ad.
“Every single sexual assault accusation must be taken seriously,” a Peloton spokesperson said.
“We were unaware of these allegations when we featured Chris Noth in our response to HBO’s reboot. As we seek to learn more, we have stopped promoting this video and archived related social posts.”
