  • All I can say is shop off-brands there cheaper better quality and no hoops to jump through if something goes wrong with the mattress. Also shop at mom and pop shops they will do anything to keep a good name in there community.

  • Just get a purple mattress and call it day.

  • ... aren't you supposed to try the mattress yourself before buying? Some people need softer ones, some need firmer.

  • Uhh, the online memory foam mattresses let you try for a year. At least the one we bought from did.

  • I hang upside down from the ceiling. Space saving, cost effective and I'm 4 inches taller than I used to be.

  • I sleep on my floor. It’s only cuz I don’t like soft beds.

  • Thank you Adam and College Humor for this one. Just in time for me too, not that there is much I can do about it I guess.

  • Commie fucker

  • "industry incest"

  • I just hate this guy's face

  • The reason why mattresses are such a rip off is because it's not something you buy often. People keeps mattresses for 10~ years so the retail is much higher then the cost to make it. I worked at a furniture store as a sales person and mattresses had like 200 dollar spiff for a 1500 dollars mattresses. Im not disagreeing it's a rip off but it's kinda justified.

  • Lol i caught what the generic podcast was poking at cheeky

  • Nice show, but there’s the big gay. ;-;

  • It’s in Adam Ruins Everything interest to make everything seem worse than it is. The success of the video relies on it. Where is ‘Adam Ruins’ Adam Ruins Everything??

  • These days you should just pick a scam that is the least of evils, I think there's no fixing it.

  • Growing up, my family always found mattresses at yard sales or outside of peoples house with a big old sign on it that said "FREE". Weve never gotten a dirty mattress and have always found very comfortable and clean ones. We still do this, and to this day have never bought a mattress in a store and have saved thousands of dollars :)

  • who is this gay version of alton brown?

  • So how is this white people, straight people, the nra, Trump, or organized religions fault?

  • Idk I’m still gonna use a mattress

  • Beta male king.

  • But that ending? What the heck are you doing?

  • Costco makes a solid mattress

  • Adam is nothing by a soy boy with a ridiculous haircut, a liar, that contradicts himself

  • Give me the big facts Adam!

  • 3:20

  • 3:20

  • 3:20

  • $200 IKEA mattress, worth every penny

  • but what is the purpose of a purple matress?

  • That lady at 0:18 is that pageant lady from insatiable off Netflix

  • It looks like a dank meme at the end

  • This has nothing to do with a mattress companies he’s just described every retailers formate . I guess it’s a cleaver pun on marketing . Your all ways getting scammed when shopping.

  • Don't use Google. 90% unrelated to the video but just don't. The alternatives are 10x better and it'll make the world better

  • Just buy the purple matress it's 100, with a grid like design and the firmness to cradel pressure points but the softness to not break a raw egg it's the best of comfort and practicality combined.

  • weird flex but okay

  • aside from the anti true crime virtue signaling this video was decent

  • Poor Philly D

  • hold on.. i NEED to know about the purple mattress. adam pls

  • What a worthless video. "Buying mattresses is a rip-off, and there's nothing you can do to stop it." Wow, thanks for being so insightful.

  • Just buy one of those mattresses that are just a slab of sponge inside. They super cheep and if you sleep in roughly the same spot, will over time become nice and soft on that area.

  • People are gonna take this the wrong way, because that's what they do. Lying on an 80 bucks piece of foam still isn't just as good as sleeping on a quality mattress, and will ruin your health. You don't need a 1000-2000 bucks mattress, but you do need an actual good one.

  • The only thing he knows about mattresses is the one his boyfriend presses his face into.

  • The last time I was mattress shopping I already had a nifty, incredibly inexpensive, 22" high inflatable queen size bed in a box in my trunk. I decided to check out a large mattress store before breaking open and trying the cheap bed out but couldn't find any sales people in the store. I finally found a lady sleeping in a recliner behind a desk in the middle of the store. It was hard to wake her because she was using headphones. She finally showed me a mattress I had seen advertised and pointed out the fact that it was crap. I told her I was driving around with the new inflatable bed in the car and she advised that I was better off to keep that one. That was more than one year ago and I am very pleased that I did.

  • so pretty much this is a long way to say nothing

  • Google Zinus and thank me later

  • Sooooo... are there any useful pointers for mattress shoppers, or is this video simply b*tching for the sake of b*tching? Like, are we supposed to just buy the cheapest one, or what.

  • The most annoying person in the world right here

  • Owo look at the sparkle

  • Hey you Adam, where's eve?

  • The podcast is SO TRUE

  • All the dislikers were mattress company employees

  • 4:50 Freddie Mercury? What are you doing working for a matress company?

  • Mattresses really have gotten better, though. You don't see waterbeds much anymore because memory foam is almost as good, and less trouble to maintain.

  • And coming up next week, on *Adam clutches at straws*

  • This applies to almost any product ever honestly xD

  • Get a Purple mattress! Problem solved

  • College humor, now that is an oxymoron.

  • Anybody got any idea where the Purple matress stands in all of this?

  • calm down ppl buy a mattress like once a decade. and the people who buy mattresses more than that can probably afford the prices

  • I've been sleeping in the same hammock for the past 4 years. It cost me $40 (AUD)

  • buy a blanket and throw it on the floor. apparently its better for your spine than using a mattress anyway

  • I knew about the different naming so you cant price match

  • He is an idiot

  • just get the cheapest one

  • How about just accept the scam because there’s no other f***ing better option.

  • Adam ruins his career

  • I've slept on a large piece of cushion foam from the craft store with a lawn chair cushion on top. Did fine for me. No need for a heavy mattress.

  • I actually had a good experience with my recent mattress shopping. I went to a Mattress Firm three times. The first time, an employee showed me around the store and had me try out different mattresses. I went home to think things over. When I went back, I decided to get the Original Purple Mattress. Two guys delivered the mattress and a new platform to my third floor apartment and hauled away my old mattress and box spring (for a reasonable fee). After a few weeks, I decided the Purple wasn't working out for me. I went back Mattress Firm, at which time they had me try out different mattresses to see what might be a better fit for me. I decided on a Kingsdown Passions mattress. And even though it was priced $100 higher than the Purple, they knocked that $100 off so that I would have an even exchange. A few days later, two guys brought the Kingsdown mattress up to my apartment and took away the Purple one -- at no extra delivery/pickup charge. It was a nice experience all the way around. I'm sorry that some people have had bad mattress shopping experiences, but that just wasn't the case with me.

  • Buying Adam Ruins Everything videos from ID-tv is one BIG scam! Yes, I have an advertisement to buy his DVDs, ;)

  • Love the show, do you have your own channel? Ik you post it on college humor and trutv but I am curious as to whether you have a channel just for your show

  • I hope Adam makes an episode called, Adam ruins the video game industry or Adam ruins Fortnite!

  • I did my own research on layering densities of foam and made my own mattress for 1/4 the cost using supplies from the foam factory.

  • Adam states you can not test a mattress that you buy online first and that's false. almost every company offers a try before you buy option... Like most of his videos, some of the stuff is true but they gloss over things that are false and don't expect you to question it just in the attempt for content. shame on me for actually clicking on this video.

  • Just get a Purple mattresses

  • Sometimes they've been known to fall off the back of a truck. This one time Vinnie found a whole truck. Anyways if your looking for a cheap mattress talk to his cousin Joey he runs the old storage units tell him Nicky sent ya.

  • How about Purple?

  • Yeah it's just Sleep on two of them...double up two of them lol

  • this channel as really gone down the drain

  • Sleep Number is great. It's actually completely different from a normal mattress.


  • so this is why there are so many mattress stores

  • To be fair most mattress buyers can't be helped, when you suggest a softer mattress for a lighter person they tutt and try the one made for folks over 16st/101kgs. Its really not that difficult, you pick the one which follows your backs shape when you lie on it, if there's a gap or serious pressing move on to the next. also the memory mattresses you see on social media are complete garbage. No support and just awful to lie on.

  • What matra needs downpaiment. I bought my queen sized from ikea in Netherlands for 110 euro 5 years ago. Still use it who in their right minds bies a 2000 dollar matrass

  • It's sad that no one can take anything from this show at face value after that SJW one they did.

  • @ Adam I hope you finally learned - Government regulations do not solve problems. Maybe now that you are aware, you can explain that to @ CollegeHumor team

  • After a while it doesn't matter where you sleep, your back is gonna start hurting whether you like it or not. It's called getting old.

  • Anyone else Disturbed by the ending there?

  • Remember when Adam used to debunk things for a reason? And give us potential solutions?

  • Just do what I do and go to Costco!! Decent mattress for decent price

  • Your parents say they love you???? Watch Adam ruin that too

  • Come here, you!

  • Dislikes are mattress retailers.

  • what about the 90 day trial that online mattresses usually give consumers?

  • Got a waterbed in 1974 and still have one. Easy to move much lower cost than conventional mattress and frame

  • I bought my matress for 800$ and the next year was able to get the same exact one for my mom for 400$ I would feel like I have been scammed, however they are the best sleep I have ever had and I suppose the average is having spent 600$ on each, pretty worthwhile.

  • So... my online mattress that was $100 was really $300? How did they get the other $200? Cause it wasn't from me.

  • Yeah I had to mattress shop and can agree with all that stuff. I just looked at what I could afford and what we were willing to pay.

  • Just go to IKEA...

  • Aww aspergers, cute

  • Thanks?
