Hilarious Paul Thomas Anderson magic!
6 October 2003 | by rascal65See all my reviews

This is just an advert which features on the Punch-Drunk Love DVD and features Philip Seymour Hoffman playing Dean. Dean is advertising his company as "The Mattress Man" whilst playing a guitar on top of a building. He then proceeds to jump off the building on to a car with mattresses piled up on top of it. However, instead of a nice comfortable fall Dean ends up bouncing off the mattresses and hitting the concrete road.

This is really funny and just another example of why Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the best directors out there today. It's cleverly shot and doesn't prolong the joke. A perfect extra to a perfect movie.
