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.

Tuesday Throwback: That Awkward Hall’s Refresh Commercial In A Dorm Room

This one is from 2009, and damn, it’s awkward. We got the mom, Mrs. Hunter, and her son’s new roommate sharing a moment over a Hall’s Refresh. Is it normal for an 18 year old to be asking Mrs. Hunter if she wants a cough drop? And would he really be calling it a Halls Refresh? They both enjoy the mouth-wateringly refreshing juicy flavor, much to the shock of Ronnie and Ronnie’s dad (presumably Mr. Hunter). It’s got moisture action! I remember finding it to be somewhat amusing, but I’m not the only one who was a little creeped out.
