So the plates are exercising and the grease is sweat and the product's the fitness trainer.

How's that supposed to make sense? I can kind of imagine the 'brainstorm' where this came out, but those moments of constipated creativity usually pass and are ignored on the way to the right idea.

This makes me think of sweaty plates. This is actually saying the plates are getting dirtier. When you exercise, the sweat doesn't usually fling itself out of you in every direction, it sticks to your clothes, drips down your body and makes you stink. Not the smartest way to sell a cleaning product.

dude, stop over-analyzing everything. it's a simple enough idea. they're working out and thus burning off fat/losing fat.

nice idea, but execution is very weak

Everybody is creative, be yourself.

It may not make perfect sense, but it's kinda cute and funny. Not really as bad as people make it out to be.
