Don't Get It
7 August 2018 | by hereispierreSee all my reviews

I guess this is spoofing a real mattress commercial from years ago that I just haven't seen but I just don't get the point of this one. It's just a few seconds long. Hoffman is on the roof of a mattress store then jumps off onto a pile of mattresses but bounces off and hits the ground hard. That's all the happens. I've seen Punch Drunk Love and loved it, and am a big fan of Hoffman and Anderson, but I just don't get the point of this outtake or extra or whatever it is.
