A New Purple Mattress Brings Back Ronnie’s Long-Lost Father

This ad for Purple has been online for two months now, but I just saw a shortened version on TV. And it’s a memorable one. Ronnie’s dad suddenly comes to the door after 20 years. Dad heard his Ronnie got a new Purple Mattress, and he just has to try it out. Ronnie and his family thought his dad was dead…but it turns out he was just dead tired. And of course Dad goes on to ignore Ronnie, because he’s more interested in snoozing on that Purple Mattress. Hahaha. The closing music really adds to this one’s tragicomic feel. I cracked up, but kinda felt like a terrible person for doing so. And I totally understand why some would hate it.
