  • 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 TH-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?

  • To be fair to Casper, they do offer a 100 day trial period where you can get your money back if you don't like it. (according to my nosy podcasts) But yes definitely harder than comparing mattresses at a store

  • What about purple?

  • Great job.

  • What about Adam ruins the legend that "Eskimos" have plenty of words for snow? :)

  • I guess I'm lucky that there are a handful of mom and pop mattress manufacturers where I live.

  • Why are half the people in this show gay? Never felt like I had homosexuality forced down my throat so hard until I started watching this show.

  • You'll spend 1/3 of your life asleep, invest in yourself.

  • Just get a dog bed.

  • 3:40 💀

  • Just sounds like we need more people with mattress factories and other stuff. Like other peopkr with medical centers. Wait. All that takes money.

  • Ha! Beds are for losers! I just sleep on the job! I'm a forklift driver, please don't tell anyone.

  • Adam what about alternatives like hammocks?

  • That's why purple is the best

  • just sleep on floor

  • or just buy a plank of wood and sleep on that.

  • I support all of this liberalism, and don't get me wrong, but this is just not humour

  • 5:29 When you get done with all your chores and your mom say she got something good else.

  • So standard marketing and industry practice? Nothing new learned here

  • i bought my three matress sets used online on craiglist free from people who bought these ridiculous over priced pieces of junk.

  • I really like my internet mattress quite a bit. With plenty of return time, I don’t feel like I have been duped...

  • Kathy also hates FATTY PATTY! (Netflix🙄)

  • Time for a dose of this clowns latest Wikipedia binge of misinformation.

  • say for half the actual youtubers

  • You that white chick in the beginning is from insatiable

  • She is a real life skinny barbie. She must miss out on a lot of meals to be that skinny.

  • Adam in the mattress trying to look like the “I love it” video so bad😂

  • It’s easy. Find the cheapest and least fancy mattresses, lay down on them, pick the comfortable one. Speak in a heavy, unidentifiable accent so that if the seller tries to confuse or sway your opinion, you can just pretend you don’t understand them and redirect them towards the cheap ones.

  • How thick do you have to be to finally realize this? Flooring industry is the same way geniuses.

  • *that wasn't 30 seconds*


  • After this, I threw my matress out of my house and started sleeping on the floor.

  • I will just keep sleeping on the floor.

  • Its called a 20 ft rope and some 2 by 4s. The reason why getting married is called "tying the knot" is because mattresses from the 16th - 20th centuries were a piece of rope and some burlap stuffed with hay. On a couples wedding night, the knot holding the bed together would be untied, so you would have to "Tie the knot" so you didn't crash into the ground.

  • Does the female do porn by chance?

  • But what about purple mattresses. They have a 100 day guarantee and it doesn’t look like a normal mattress

  • I bet the tag is full of it to

  • Broke: everyone else Woke: this lady, opening invited learning everyone’s bullshit

  • I don't get the problem at all. Why are people spending so much money on mattresses? I have a framed mattress bed from Ikea, set me back 200 dollers. It's absolutely great.

  • Adam, your hair is scaring me. Now I know it is not your fault that your hair is like that I have a friend with similar hair and I know it just happens sometimes but you really need to seek help, also if you use a mattress you are clearly under the Reptoids mind control I only need a a pillow, then again pillows might be used by the Greys as a form of hormones injector as I'm growing boobs, and no I only buy McDonald's twice a day so that can't be it. Also getting fat from McDonald's is a government conspiracy to take away my diet coke. Regards Ossi

  • Or go to a flee market that's what we did and it's not bad and it was a cheap
