Millennial, Gen-X Opps: Peloton features a nude Christopher Meloni in latest campaign (Score 68)

Peloton appeals to Law and Order fans to highlight its app in its latest campaign, which features a nude Christopher Meloni in celebration of National Nude Day. Made by Ryan Reynold’s agency, Maximum Effort, and creative and social AOR Mekanism, the ad promotes Peloton's various workout options - bike-less or pants-less. Sellers should contact soon to secure last-minute ad dollars.

So far this year, iSpot reports Peloton has spent approximately $49.7m on national TV commercials, down 34% from the approximately $75.2m spent by this point last year. The company ended up spending approximately $194.7m on this channel last year, around 3x the approximately $62.1m spent in 2020. Peloton's 2022 commercials have targeted millennials with a male skew by airing during shows such as College Football, NFL Football, NCIS, Friends and Family Guy.

According to Pathmatics, the company has allocated roughly $16.2m toward digital ads YTD, less than half of the roughly $35.6m allocated within the same 2021 timeframe. In 2021, Peloton's estimated full-year spend of $65.8m reached more than double that of $29.7m in 2020. Since the beginning of 2022, the company has earned ~2.1b digital impressions via Facebook (53%), Instagram (41%), desktop display (4%), desktop video (2%) and mobile display (1%) ads. 

Peloton seems to be primarily targeting millennials and Gen-X. Its TV commercials also target a male-skewed audience.
