Christopher Meloni stars in a new Peloton commercial where he works out in the nude.
Fans can’t get enough of the naked Meloni as he does yoga, runs, meditates, and strength trains.
The actor admitted in a recent interview that he does actually work out naked and doesn’t use blackout curtains.
In honor of #NationalNudeDay, fitness giant Peloton partnered with actor Christopher Meloni (a.k.a. detective Stabler from Law & Order: SVU) for a very interesting commercial. The ad, posted to their social media accounts, featured the 61-year-old stripped down completely naked and in a series of compromising positions...and fans can’t get enough of the video.
“Apparently, some people think the way I work out is strange,” Meloni says in the first scene of the commercial. “Honestly, I don’t get it.”
The Law & Order star is seen standing and facing forward in an indoor gym while doing bicep curls. As the camera view gets farther away, viewers can see that Meloni is totally naked. Yes, he has nothing on at all, and the only thing covering him up is a blurred box over his private parts.
Meloni then drops down into a squat, before the scene cuts to him (still naked) turning on his Peloton App. We almost forgot this was a Peloton advertisement, but Meloni jokes that the “strange” thing people don’t understand about his workouts is that he uses Peloton.

“I don’t think using the Peloton App is strange at all,” he jokes completely deadpan. The camera then cuts to Meloni on his back doing bicycling crunches. Viewers can see he’s still completely nude but he has on white socks and sneakers.
The Wet Hot American Summer star then tells viewers that he likes to do many different kinds of workouts. The camera then cuts to a very (seriously, we’re sweating) close shot of Meloni’s blurred-out midsection and pans up to show him doing bicep curls, yoga (yes, still naked), and more.
He is then seen in his bedroom with the TV turned to a cardio workout where viewers see a (still) naked Meloni kicking and punching. Next, we follow Meloni to a garden where he sits cross-legged with his eyes closed meditating in the nude.
Viewers then get a rear (literally) view of the partially blurred Meloni as he does squats with stacked dumbbells during a strength training workout. A stressed sound comes from behind the camera, so Meloni pauses to bend down and look through his legs to ask, “You ok back there? You want me to call somebody?” The scene puts him in a very…compromising position.
Meloni then runs through a wooded trail with his phone strapped to his arm. A couple with their dog sits on a bench and looks incredibly confused when Meloni runs by, still, totally naked. Finally, he is back in his indoor gym stretching. “Now does this seem strange to you?” he asks the camera, while he is, you guessed it, totally nude.
The commercial ends with a voiceover reminiscent of Law & Order that says, “In the Peloton community, users are represented by two separate but equally motivated groups. Those who wear pants and Christopher Meloni.”
Naturally, fans and followers can’t get enough of the naked workouts. Peloton coach Matty Maggiacomo commented, “I AM DECEASED. Fully naked.” Callie Gullickson, another Peloton coach, wrote, “ELLIOT STABLER YOU DID NOT!!!” referring to Meloni’s character on Law and Order. Coach Jess Sims added, “Ohhhh. My. Word.”
More fans jumped in joking, “I am…lots of things with this post. Better go watch it six more times.” Others wrote, “I HOLLERED LAUGHING at this,” and “If that doesn’t motivate you to work out, NOTHING will.”
But this isn’t the first time Meloni has stripped down for a sweat. The star told People in a recent interview he actually works out naked regularly. “I work out naked. It’s my gym,” he said, adding that he “can do whatever” he wants.
Meloni then added, “And I don’t black out the window. And I’m okay with that. My wife is not.”
We’ll be over here...just trying to recover. 🥵
