Peloton is known for its high-end stationary bikes — and its over-the-top advertising.

The exercise startup filed for its initial public offering on Tuesday, and according to its prospectus, it generated $915 million in revenue its last fiscal year. Peloton first made its name with stationary bikes that connect to a tablet streaming spin classes, making it a kind of at-home SoulCycle. In fact, Peloton overtook SoulCycle in customers last year, according to data company Second Measure.

Peloton’s advertising has also gained notoriety, but for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this year, people took to Twitter to make fun of Peloton’s ads. The glossy marketing campaign featured physically fit users cycling in modern, luxurious homes that often overlook a futuristic metropolis or expansive backyard. Oh, and their Peloton is almost exclusively positioned somewhere in the middle of the room.

One Twitter user saw Peloton’s over-the-top ads as the perfect comedic opportunity.
