Ryan Reynolds is here to save Peloton’s day — narrating a new spoof ad that’s in direct response to the outrage over Mr. Big dying in the new ‘SATC’ show. Also … spoiler alert.
The actor just posted a hilarious 38-second clip, something Peloton apparently whipped up over these past few days. It shows Chris Noth — who plays Sarah Jessica Parker‘s love interest throughout the OG series — yukking it up with actress Jess King.
She stars as the hot Peloton instructor that Big is kinda into during the first couple episodes of ‘And Just Like That …” — which killed off Carrie’s hubby after a Peloton bike ride. As you can see, he’s doing just fine … and even jokingly asks if King wants to go for another ride.
As you’ve probably heard, CN’s death made for a huge twist — but it also had very real-world ramifications for Peloton … whose stock price took a nosedive in the wake of the premiere.
Peloton came out and said Big didn’t die as a result of riding their bike, but because of what he’d done prior to hopping on … namely, living large. A company spokesperson responded, “Mr. Big lived what many would call an extravagant lifestyle — including cocktails, cigars, and big steaks — and was at serious risk as he had a previous cardiac event in Season 6.”
They added, “These lifestyle choices and perhaps even his family history, which often is a significant factor, were the likely cause of his death. Riding his Peloton Bike may have even helped delay his cardiac event.”
Now, here’s them putting a bow on the whole thing … assuring fans Big is alive, and happy, despite his on-screen tragedy. Reynolds hits that point with a long disclaimer at the end. 😅
