When he's not busy solving crimes and catching criminals on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Christopher Meloni can be found running through the local park or working out in his at-home gym. For this reason, he was deemed to be the perfect star for Peloton's ad campaign for their new workout app. However, when he let the cameras in, they were shocked to learn that Meloni wears a little less than most when he works out. Thankfully, they decided to keep the cameras rolling regardless...

"Apparently, some people think the way I work out is strange," Moloni opens the ad while lifting weights and breathing heavily. "Honestly, I don't get it," he sighs as the camera blurs over his fully naked body. "Me? I don't think using the Peloton app is strange at all," he voices over while the actor can be seen using the app for workout guides, and close-ups of the blurred-out area are shown. "Sure, they're famous for their amazing equipment, but the app gets me motivated to do lots of different workouts." Naked yoga, cardio, mediation, strength training, and running, we are blessed with nude footage of it all. "In the Peloton community, users are represented by two separate but equally motivated groups. Those who wear pants, and Christopher Meloni," concludes the voiceover mimicking the tone of the SVU episode opening narrator.

This comedic marketing campaign came from the mind of none other than the hilarious Ryan Reynolds and his production company Maximum Effort. Working alongside Peloton to honor National Nude Day, this ad will indeed have everyone talking - or continuously replaying, in our case. That being said, just because it was all Reynold's idea, that won't stop him from roasting his pal for his newfound naked fame...

In a string of Instagram stories, Reynolds uploaded screenshots from the ad with a range of humorous captions. "This isn't an ad. It's a crime scene." he wrote alongside a full-body shot of a naked-weight-lifting Christopher. Releasing hilarious 'behind' the scenes photos of the ad being filmed, it's abundantly clear that Reynolds will be roasting his friend's revealing debut for as long as he possibly can. Hopefully, Meloni's paycheck will make it all worth it.
