Commercial Introduces iGallop - A G Rated Sybian


In this Brookestone commercial for its OSIM iGallop, a sort of bucking bronco sort of device whose random movements are supposed to develop muscle tone, the girls in this ad look more like they're riding a Sybian. Go look it up for your self. Carmen Elektra rode one on Howard Stern. Frustration notation: you need a friggin plugin to view the video. Why can't we all just be happy with Quicktime and Windows Media? OK, screw AOL/TMZ and their video formats. Thanks to Susannah for pointing it out, the ad can be viewed over at YouTube.

What? no link to sybian? I'm disappointed.

Thought you might like to know that it wasn't long after the commercial aired in Singapore (where it was conceptualised and shot) that a few "concerned" members of public wrote in to voice their displeasure at the spot's implied Sybian connections. As a result, the client (OSIM) commissioned a new "safe" commercial featuring two local celebrities, one riding a horse and the other going "Now, you too can have the benefits of horse riding, right in your own home".
