Strange.
18 November 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Funny-yet-strange commercial for the false Mattress Man company seen in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Punch-Drunk Love" (2002). During its one minute course, Dean (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) jumps from the top of a building onto a mattress--only to bounce off and hit the ground.

I was surprised when I first saw this, I thought it might be an outtake from the film, but after I saw the Blonde Brothers from the film rush to his aid I realized it was all false.

PTA pulled another one on us!
