An Ad To Which We Can Relate. Tempur-Pedic’s You Are How You Sleep (The :60 and the :30).

The best and most powerful ads tap into a reality to which people can relate. Minneapolis based ad agency Carmichael Lynch’s debut creative for the Tempur-Pedic brand, “You Are How You Sleep” commercial, does just that.

A lousy mattress leading to a poor night’s sleep may not be a genius insight, but it doesn’t have to be when executed this well. Those who require solid slumber to be their best will certainly notice themselves in the big grumpy Mama bear when deprived of shut-eye.

The likeable and memorable television commercial has been cut as a :60 and a :30 (both are shown further down in this post).

Great casting of and performances by the twin actresses along with adept direction and excellent editing make the spot both poignant and funny simultaneously. Full credits are at the end of the post.
