Memes. Memes. Memes. Memes. The only thing holding the internet together. Also here’s an interesting fact you didn’t know, memes are the DNA of the soul. Anyway, here are some of the best memes that trended the last few days from Twitter, TikTok, Facebook, Reddit or Instagram to get you up to speed.
The Peloton Bike Ad
Early this week, peloton posted a controversial holiday ad about its indoor $2,400, Wi-Fi-enabled stationary bike. The ad sparked heated debate online and the company stood by its ad despite accusations of sexism.
The fancy bike brand tried to depict a wellness journey. It didn’t go as planned.
The video got parodied
Sorry to shake things up but I'm excited to announce I'm throwing my hat in the ring and joining the presidential race and running on the single issue platform to jail everyone involved in the pitching, scripting, acting, shooting, and approval of the Peloton ad.

Fun Fact: peloton is Latin for “the bad place”

The only way to enjoy that Peloton ad is to think of it as the first minute of an episode of Black Mirror

I really thought Christmas music before Christmas was the worst, then I saw a Peloton ad. pic.twitter.com/GwqwbVe7wH

So sweet. My husband was inspired by the Peloton ad to get me a pair of pants in a child’s medium and a handwritten note that says “Don’t fucking touch me till you can fit into these”

Nothing says “maybe you should lose a few pounds” like gifting your already rail thin life partner a Peloton pic.twitter.com/E2M9gFdD5A

🎶 Take me down to the Peloton city where the wives are lean and the men are shitty 🎶

No offense to the Peloton lady but if your Christmas gift to me is just a video of you using the Christmas gift I got you last year then you’re not getting another Christmas present from me again
— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) December 3, 2019
Thank you for not giving up on me honey. I know I have a lot of work to do…I promise I’m going to fix this. You’re the best husband ever. pic.twitter.com/VJsrxVxZak

My fave commercial right now is that one where a guy buys his already perfectly fit wife a Peloton for Christmas and she gets revenge by making him watch a compilation video of her using it for a year
— Adam Tod Brown (@adamtodbrown) November 30, 2019
All I want for Christmas is a Peloton bike in a multi-million dollar house with 35 foot windows, two brand new Lexuses out front with gigantic red bows, while I open a jewelry box for my wife while we are decked out in beige and black Banana Republic outfits.
— Jeremy Jojola (@jeremyjojola) December 2, 2019
What do I do if I actually want a peloton for Christmas?
— Alex Gaskarth (@AlexGaskarth) December 3, 2019
I hope the Peloton wife leaves her husband and takes their daughter and falls in love with the Mandalorian and they raise the daughter and Baby Yoda together as one happy family. That’s what I hope.
— The War on Christmark (@markhoppus) December 3, 2019
i actually think that the real story of the ad is that she forgot to buy her husband a gift so she made a fake video compilation of all the times she allegedly used the peloton he got her last year
— Erin War on Christmas Ryan (@morninggloria) December 2, 2019
Love putting my Peloton bike in the most striking area of my ultra-modern $3 million house
— Clue Heywood (@ClueHeywood) January 28, 2019
Peloton is legally required to repossess your bike if at least one wall of your house isn’t entirely windows

Look I don’t want to be “The Peloton Ad Guy” anymore but the newest commercial about the vlogging 116 lb woman’s YEARLONG fitness journey to becoming a 112 lb woman who says “I didn’t realize how much this would change me” is just ri-god-damn-diculous. Come on.
— Clue Heywood (@ClueHeywood) November 25, 2019
A Peloton ad has made clear
Just what it can do in a year.
The Pelaton wife
Has a beautiful life
And a general aura of fear.

Princess Anne declines to shake Trump’s hand
Princess Anne, the Queen’s only daughter refused to come over and greet President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
Shoutout to Princess Anne for flat out refusing to meet Trump haha pic.twitter.com/YMsbMZfRCe

Nato leaders slagging off Trump while Princess Anne laps it up – not giving a single shit – is also the mood we need to take into today pic.twitter.com/OLxmFRzqk1
— Hannah Jane Parkinson (@ladyhaja) December 4, 2019
"Why is 'Princess Anne' trending?", I asked myself.
Reader, I was not disappointed.
Princess Anne has long been the "not putting up with your shit" member of the Royal Family.
Her reactions to The Orange Buffoon were bound to be shareworthy. #PrincessAnne

Princess Anne has ALWAYS been an absolute hero in the royal family. Didn’t give her kids titles, first to divorce, working round the clock…
The videos of her gossiping with world leaders & shrugging like a teenager at the queen are just the cherry on top. *chef’s kiss* pic.twitter.com/3RLgQHOxMf

Princess Anne is like “ I turned up mum, what more do you want from me ?!” 😅 love Princess Anne ! The shade is reaaaal 🤣

IS PRINCESS ANNE DEAD?

Always loved her. Grew up in the village where she lives. When you’ve seen her with a sledgehammer, slamming in wooden posts on the side of a main road, with no security detail, and a young Zara and Peter sat watching on, you knew she didn’t give a stuff.

'[After shooting her chauffeur and bodyguard, the kidnapper] directed Anne to get out of the car, to which she replied: "Not bloody likely!", and reportedly briefly considered hitting him.'

I think the greatest part of today is realizing Princess Anne is kind of exactly how she is portrayed in The Crown. pic.twitter.com/4p7USH0fgP

Oh My God.
I knew this happened.
But I’ve yet to see it up close.
Trudeau, Macron, Johnson, Rutte and Princess Anne in Buckingham Palace, openly mock Trump.
Cannot wait for this to be The Crown Season 8. https://t.co/ZuHIxwy8ta
— Dr. Jennifer Cassidy (@OxfordDiplomat) December 4, 2019
People are surprised that Princess Anne can hang? That woman once was the victim of an attempted kidnapping and when she was told to get out of her car at gunpoint she said, "Not bloody likely." A true bad bitch.
— Little Edie's Head Scarf (@lordandtyler) December 4, 2019
Omg. When I was growing up in Illinois, Princess Anne (the brunette with a high bun, wearing the flower print dress and blazer), was the naughty princess. God love her, she hasn’t changed. We stan her reaction to dtump and Mel. https://t.co/r8i8q01CPm
— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) December 4, 2019
The Princess Anne ‘no, fuck you’ shrug could and should be used in all political situations from here on. Thank you ma’am.

Caught Cheating Using A Fitbit
An Ex Boyfriend once got me a Fitbit for Christmas. I loved it. We synched up, motivated each other… didn’t hate it until he was unaccounted for at 4am and his physical activity levels were spiking on the app 🥴wish the story wasn’t real. https://t.co/npRkLJYYz0

Jane! My ex husband got caught in an affair because he was wearing the training watch and heartbeat monitor my mom bought him for Christmas – while “running”. It was the under-one-minute heart rate spike that confirmed things for me! #prematuresayswhat

Baby Yoda Tattoo
Baby Yoda memes have gone viral since the character’s debut in Mandalorian so a guy tattooed baby Yoda drinking a white claw and people mocked him
Ain’t no laws when baby yoda drinking claws.
To end 2019 I got a tattoo of Baby Yoda drinking White Claw.

my take on the whole "asking consent for emotional labor" thing is you can just say "hey do you have time to talk" and not be a weirdo about it
