roles. >> i hope people can just see me as an actress because that's what i am. i like to do movies and tv and commercials. i hope people can remember i'm not actually the peloton lady and let me work other jobs. >> ride the wave, peloton lady. tune in at 7:00 a.m. >> laura, we're glad you're back and your voice is the same as mine. we're getting there. in the commercial sometimes there's just acting. it went real life. >> they're actors. >> i had to sit him down and say, son, there are some people who act. >> a learning moment here. >> exactly. >> that's what we do here. >> your stuff is real, right, kari? >> i think so. i don't know.
