Horse Riding Fitness Ace Power: Korea’s Shake Weight Goes Viral

Submitted by on July 24, 2012 – 9:13 am3 Comments

If you thought the Shake Weight was hard to believe, just wait until you see the latest exercise trend from Korea. It’s the Horse Riding Fitness Ace Power, though it might be more accurately called the Hump-O-Matic 3000. The user sits on top and rolls their hips and abdomen forward… oh, just watch:

The infomercial has been on YouTube since January, but just started going viral yesterday. It had shot up to over a thousand views by last night, and I’m pretty sure those aren’t all from fitness buffs.

The Shake Weight also turned heads back in 2009-2010 with it’s weird jerking shaft motion and slightly pornographic infomercials. Wikipedia puts it in hilariously dry terms: “As a result of the perceived sexually suggestive nature of the product, infomercial clips of the exercise device have gone viral.”

Similarly, the Ace Power involves an eye-popping motion and questionable health benefits.

What do you think? Are you waiting for the Horse Riding Fitness Ace Power to come out in the US?
