This commercial makes me want to scream. The guy gets done telling the girl what a great deal they are and she responds with "Well handstand donkey kick", puts both hands down in front of her and puts one leg up behind her. Then stands back up looking all proud of herself and he responds "Nice."

Ok, first, a true handstand involves BOTH feet leaving the floor and a donkey kick involves actual kicking not just holding one leg straight. Second, there was nothing in that act to be all puffed up about. Unless, you call it like it is: "Downward dog peeing on a tree." It was great form with straight lines. He could say "nice" for that not for a "handstand donkey kick" that wasn't a handstand or a donkey kick let alone both.

I made an honest effort to find "Handstand Donkey Kick" without any luck.
They have a new slogan, 'No Lunks'. I thought this one was kinda funny.

I wish they'd get back to the lunks. Those at least were closer to accurate.

It's actually donkey kicking to a handstand, but apparently handstand donkey kick has a better ring to it.

It does. Sit ups and push ups are hard enough on their own without adding anything else.

How do you post videos? I can't find the instructions anywhere.

Thank you so much!

This is another one I'm not a fan of, but they haven't aired it in my area, yet, so I won't complain too much. The other plays every morning.

I loathe Planet Fitness, and these commercials typically make me respect the people being made fun of far more. XD

Still, I really really like Planet Fitness commercials for one reason. No matter how sh*tty the gym I'm in is...it'll never be Planet Fitness sh*tty.

"I lift things and put them back down"
I saw that one while I was searching, still makes me laugh.  LOL

That one was the height of this campaign. It was silly enough to work.

That one cracks me up. Especially, when we meet someone just like that guy. Oddly there's a lot of him out there.

Yeah, though they tend to look less like him and more like "Do you even lift?" types, or like Rob Lowe in that one commercial. XD

Omigosh, those Rob Lowe commercials bring on a whole nother rant. Mostly because they play the same one over and over 2 or 3 days in a row then nothing like they want you to forget each one before you see another.
Life is a one time offer, use it well.
