Following that viral, much criticizedPelotonad, actor Ryan Reynolds’ gin company has come up with a new commercial starring the very same actress at the center of the controversy.

The ad from Peloton, a company known for its exercise bikes, stirred up a storm across the internet this week. In the 50 – second commercial, a man gives his wife – now known as the “Peloton wife” – an exercise bike as a gift. That sparked outrage online as viewers complained about what they saw as undertones of sexism in the ad.

A new Aviation Gin commercial now appears to mock that ad. It was posted on Reynolds’ Twitter account on Friday night, with the actor writing in the post: “Exercise bike not included.”

In the ad, the very same actress is at a bar with two friends. She stares at the camera in a lengthy, awkward silence before saying: “This gin is really smooth.”

One of her friends then tell her she’s “safe here,” before they all toast to “new beginnings.” The ad, which has attracted more than a million views in two hours, ends with the friend telling her “you look great.”

Peloton shares took a hit from the storm of criticism , plunging about 90% through the week by Thursday, before picking up slightly on Friday.

The companyhas since responded, saying it was “disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial.”
