    Angry Musclehead Putdown!



    This thread will chronicle the media stereotyping of bodybuilders as muscleheads. In this one, Apple thinks it's funny that a yuppie chick has to to go the gym around the musclehead iron pumpers to get her wi fi to work. Ha. Ha. Ha.

    The Planet Fitness ads are our of control. And they even have a painting of a bodybuilder silhouette on the wall with an X through it like a no smoking sign! I still can't believe Mike Katz has a hand in it.

    Exactly. I realize that TV ads have just a few seconds to get a reaction out of watchers (in Apple's case, 15 seconds), but the idea that those muscleheads are just ridiculous grates on my nerves. & if you'll notice, they get even CLOSER to her at the end. God forfend!

    Here's the famous (or infamous) LUNK ALARM in action. Ha. Ha. Ha.

    Like anything, money talks. I forget where I saw it, but Katz has explained his involvement by saying, something like, that he's making money hand over fist with PF. With a hard core or old school gym? Nowhere near the return.

    This one is funny, & for once is not insulting.

    If you haven't seen Mike Pulcinella's "answer" to Planet Fitness, it's a must.

    At least the Planet Fitness ad admits it: "We're not a gym." What they ARE is another matter.

    This is a satire of trainers we've all seen.
