Once upon a time Bossy slept in a van down by the river which was dressed as a bedroom in suburbia.
Until one day a knight dressed as a Tempur-Pedic Cloud Supreme mattress came to rescue Bossy from her writhing insomnia.
And Bossy enjoyed her new life with her bed husband so much, she partnered with Tempur-Pedic to give away a mattress to one Bossy reader clever enough to submit a 60-second video.
There were so many creative, funny, and heartbreaking entries — Bossy can’t link to all of them, but here are just a few.
She just may be the funniest person on earth:
And these two wrote an incredibly hilarious song:
And this video was done in claymation:
Although Bossy recommended an overflowing handful of videos as finalists, the winner decision was ultimately placed in Tempur-Pedic’s lap and sister mercy it must have caused many sleepless nights, even with a cloud bed.
And so it is with great pleasure Bossy announces the winner of the Tempur-Pedic mattress. Congratulations Em! Here is her video:
Finally, Bossy’s friends at Tempur-Pedic want to acknowledge everyone who submitted a video by giving away one Tempur-Pedic All-PurposePillow to each person who entered Bossy’s giveaway but
Bossy will be in touch with each of you individually — and to the rest of Bossy’s esteemed council, thanks as always for your support. Lumbar or otherwise.

I can’t wait to get home -where video isn’t blocked by the Evil Firewall of Doom- and watch these 🙂

Loved that pillow on the plane ride back to SF from NY. It was one of the best items of Schwag.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bossy & Tempur-Pedic! I’m soooo excited about this, I can hardly tell you!

Foolery is fatally bummed that she didn’t submit a video. Foolery desperately needs a new bed, but Foolery only found out that she has video capability Saturday. (The lower back pain has destroyed Foolery’s ability to use personal pronouns, apologies.)

Oh — will watch videos on my lunch hour, and congrats to Em!

Damn. I needed that bed. GUess I’ll have to do it the old fashioned way and steal it from someone else.

I am in love with the woman in the first video. I’m not saying she was robbed. But somebody should give her a comfy mattress.
foolery saysAugust 11, 2010 at 3:57 pm
These were all SO good. 🙂

loved the winning video. Music and to the point.
all others were cute too.

It’s serene and sweet and dreamy, just like the mattress…
Heather saysAugust 12, 2010 at 12:01 am
All great videos! It’s so nice when people use creative energy! Congrats Em!

I may be the funniest person… on Earth? I think I just peed a little. Not because that was so damn flattering, (which it totally was). but because i drank like a gallon of water right before bed and my ability to hold my tinkle effectively was lost when I popped out my big-headed son sixteen years ago.
It was a fun contest, Thanks for letting me play. Big congrats to the winner. I don’t hate you. Much.

Great entries, well done, Sher!
But I am shocked to find the little peanut doesn’t seem available over here in the old world.
Gramps saysAugust 12, 2010 at 12:28 pm
Holy Cow—you have a bunch of talented followers
joeinvegas saysAugust 12, 2010 at 12:45 pm
I can see why TP picked that one – it would fit as a TV commercial. The others were great but not for a public image thing. Nice that so many entered.
Doug saysAugust 12, 2010 at 5:07 pm
Well, Sher, you got my vote…and the best part of the deal is I’ve got another great blog to read every day.
