  • I hate this dudes hair man

  • Ruin purple

  • This is not news.

  • Are you serious?? What a dickless waste of time.

  • King of Random

  • Am I the only one who was waiting for a mattress brand plug that has none of the scams he mentioned

  • Alton brown ripoff without any of the humor

  • I sawed this mattress in half! And fixed it with Flexicoil™!

  • “Part 64 of our investigation into a crime that is none of our business.” Oh how accurate that is

  • Hello Internet Podcast anyone?

  • This did not surprise me one bit.

  • D

    • do you do this on every video you watch?

  • Ok but wtf was up with that ending

  • Me: *buys $175 mattress from walmart* 🤷‍♂️

  • I hope adam ruins never stop

  • Except there’s one mattress company Adam failed to ruin, Sleep Number.

    • Watch one getting put together and you'll be saying "I paid $$$$ for this crap?"

  • That's why I watch comparison reviews and only order from the link if it's cheaper then from the website.

  • las piernas d la rubia me ponen la pija dura

  • Sooo what about the part where we learn how to fight back?

  • To the people inexplicably saying "WHERE ARE YOUR SOURCES?!" or "I DON'T SEE ANY SOURCES!" 0:31 - Source #1 1:20 - Source #2 2:08 - Source #3 2:20 - Source #4 2:38 - Source #5 2:55 - Source #6 3:03 - Source #7 I could keep going, but I mean... just pay closer attention, perhaps.

    • Right? All you have to do is type that exact text (example the one at 2:08 : "Timothy Lee, Vox 10 August 2015" ) into google and youd find the link lol!

  • Why so gay

  • Good shit, never stop railing against consumer deception

  • I loved that podcast part.

  • This looks like and 8th grade project I see no sources or proof of data

    • The video is rife with sources

    • Look closer. Upper-righthand corner of video. Whenever he states hard data, they provide a source.

  • Who the f... is this guy

    • Adam Conover from Adam Ruins Everything, a TV show spin-off from College Humor.

    • ^ Troll

  • Does anybody know the name of the song that can be heard in the background from 1:38 to 2:15 ?

    • Darude Sandstorm

  • So, what about the sleep number ones that allow for adjusting firmness? I've tried a few of those out, and I could afford them, but maybe because I've become an old fogey, I'm worried that this "new-fangled" technology holds some hidden pitfalls that I'm not considering.

    • My hubby & I have a Sleep Number. We love it. And the price isn't all that different from the "regular" matresses you see in other stores. Totally worth it!

    • They ok. But lots of bells and whistles.

  • Ok so I should start my own business in the mattress industry and make millions since tbey would be cheaper?

  • The lack of facts and opposing viewpoints in these videos make them hard to watch

    • So blind, deaf, and clearly a troll. Good day

    • Are you missing the annotations whenever he says something?


  • I was waiting for him to do a parody of or dance to "I love it" by Kanye and Lil pump when he was inside the mattress

  • The podcast part had me fucking ROLLING!!! SO beyond accurate

  • "Hi I'm a Ryan Seacrest type" - Ryan Seacrest type

  • VERLO MATTRESS... No games.

  • I mean, say what you will, but 100 days to try a mattress delivered to you, and they pick it up if you don't like it is still a lot better then trying 15 mattresses in a store for a few minutes and deciding right then and there

    • +Chris Klemens No, because I actually liked the mattress!

    • Have you ever actually done those trials? Do it sometime, see how quick and painless it is to return them. They intentionally make it as difficult and obtuse as possible.

  • This Video brought to you by Casper!

  • Purple would like to know your location

  • That blond is a fox.

  • I dunno. LinenSpa, regardless of who really makes it, cost me $300....for *three* mattresses. I bought two for my kids at $70/each. I bought one for myself at $140 that is thicker. By all means, LinenSpa. Hit me up. You can pay me to write good reviews. I do it already. For real though. I won't spend $300+ on a single mattress. Look it up on Amazon.

  • *Adam Ruins Everything*

  • Personally I’d just go to IKEA.

  • I just had an argument with a buddy about this earlier today. All this stuff is middle to low income demographics because they are the majority of the population and the most susceptible to these scams. The reason why is money. They focus on the bottom dollar instead of looking at the big picture. The rich understand the poor are tunnelvisioned and they don't have the capacity to escape their habitual but toxic way of living.

  • I just bought a new mattress two weeks ago. lol

  • More Arden Myrin please!

  • Cut out the mattress store and go to the warehouse

  • What a cuckface! Someone please ruin him!

  • ...Thanks for leaving me with THAT image CH...


  • Make it yourself.

  • Am I the only one who lays on a mattress to test it and not look at the brand name at all? I love this channel but this is the first time I'm saying "who gives a shit. It's a mattress" I couldn't name more than 1 mattress brand. You either like it or you don't.

  • get a tatami matt

  • What about Purple?

    • I know right, their supposed to be better/ different

  • Thank you for scaring us, and then NOT providing a solution. 😒

    • Aaron Matthews Stores that don’t usually sell mattresses like Home Depot are great deals. It’s not their business so they have crazy good prices on decent mattresses.

    • i mean what solution can we find?

  • Informative, but the end of this was way too creepy...and this video gave no suggestions for solutions to the problem. that is why I gave it a thumb's down

    • Dumb reason to thumbs down but ok. Glad you shared

  • Cocomat!!!!

  • just sleep standing

  • Just spend a couple of thousand on our new bed. It was like buying a car. 🚗

  • Mattress sellers and employees "disliked" this video lol

  • the jab at true crime podcasts.... i felt that

  • Way to end the video on a positive note.

  • I got my last mattress from a family-owned store that makes their own mattresses.

  • I bought my matress from amazon for 120 bucks, 4 years ago. Still use it to this day.

  • We shelled out the extra for the unnamed air mattress company (from an x-mas bonus) - we know it was over priced, but 3 years later still the best bed ive ever slept on - no issues

  • Hi, former Mattress Firm employee here. They don’t really tell us anything about this, but I figured this out on my own to be true after a few months with the company.

  • Or you can sleep on a hammock.

  • Wanna talk about a real scam? Gaming chairs. You can get the same benefit of a gaming chair with office chairs, you pay a premium for the design, and they're not available in most stores so you can't try before you buy.

  • Whould have jordan peele at the end

  • Does he explain why there are so many mattress outlets?

  • Same for tires, etc etc

  • This dude is annoying af. Peace.

  • When I moved to the United States, I was shocked at the amount of mattress stores there were and the ridiculous prices. In England, I don’t think I’d ever seen an additional box mattress before. Yet here was this pointless, massive extra expense.

    • +bdfunke just visited England and the mattress wasn't all that great. Tossed and turned all night.

    • When I lived in Europe, the bed I got was just a thin mattress on some hard wooden slats. No thanks.

  • We don't need a 1k+ mattress. If you do some research you'll know that for the average person, mattresses that are too soft is bad for your body, so I put a 3" memory foam mattress($200) on a hard surface and my back has never felt better. It gives you enough cushion without your whole body sinking into the mattress distorting your spine. That's how the Japanese people has done for centuries sleeping on a futon on the hard floor

  • Being someone who has been in the industry for 12 years in a variety of capacities I can say, 100%spot on. I can say also that where you buy the mattress has everything to do with how much you pay. Go to mattress firm, get a Simmons beauty rest black hybrid, your going to pay out the nose. Go to some little mom and pop selling their unadvertised brand with the same features and it's a fraction of the cost. Just like with any consumer good you pay something for the name. One of the worst things consumers do to themselves is ask the salesperson what they recommend, and 9 times out of 10 it will be the most expensive model on the floor. The folks I am with take a different tact, we ask questions designed to lead you to the comfort level which is the best fit for you. One of the ways mattress salesmen get over is with their "sleep guarantee" which is worthless and which is really designed to drag even more money out of you. Another is with the warranty, first off true warranty defects are actually rare based upon how these are uniformly written across the industry. Having been someone who has dealt with the sales and warranty sides of the equation I can say 98% of warranty complaints truly are perception and comfort issues. But those are not what are actually going to be considered true manufacturing defects, and to be honest on a vast majority of claims that do actually meet those thresholds 95+% of the time there will be something that will disqualify the claim such as a improperly supported frame, stains, or my favorite, using the old box spring. No matter which side of the equation I have been on my advice is still the same. Find the mattress that seems like the best fit for the back and the pocket book and if you have two models you like equally just go with the lower price option because you have to be just that much more less right.

  • They said "mattress" so many times, it no longer sounded like a word. Is that really what they're called? I don't know anymore!

    • Jamais vu will do that to you.

  • Best matress I have ever had was just a simple foam one costing 100$ bought here in Norway, now 20 years later I am still using it. In between I have tried expensive onces costing 20 - 30 times more but non have been as good...

  • I'm about to make a series called ruining Adam...

  • lol what are those people doing at 5:34 ;)

  • This wasnt comedy! We learned.

  • i'm sure there must be lots of money in mattresses. You've got these stores in strip malls with big SALE signs on the window. There's some East Indian guy in there telling you how great the deals are and he'll THROW IN a mattress cover to boot! I bought there but didn't believe a word the guy was telling me. And the so called warranty he game me probably isn't worth the paper its written on

  • Um. I don't see how any of this is unique to the mattress industry. Sounds like we're just describing capitalism in general.

    • Sounds like something a filthy communist would say

  • Did not mention that many off the online companies have 30 to 60 day full return policies.

    • Mattresses cost a lot to ship. I did a return from a local brick and mortar and was out $100 or so for shipping. Imagine the cost to ship a mattress to another state. Always check to see the cost to return the product, before you buy.

  • Ok? And? Lol Also who haggles these days? Unless it's for a car or a house, no haggling goes on. Just buy the damn thing haha

  • I can tell you right now I purchased my mattress on wayfair. It came in a box like Casper and was only $200. It’s the best thing I’ve ever slept on. Idk know the brand but it does say aloe Vera on it.

  • What about those "Purple" mattresses? Are THEY a rip-off too? Or did I just answer my own question!

  • yo is season two on netflix yet?

  • Contents of this video do not reflect my first thought upon reading thumbnail's title "Adam ruins mattresses" - total clickbait, reported

  • There are so many mattress stores I totally believe the conspiracy that some are laundering tons of money. I mean when have you ever seen someone in a mattress store or been in one other than just to browse. How often do people even buy mattresses? No way there is enough demand to require like 8 "Mattress Firms" In a ten mile radius?

    • That is partially true, but mattresses stores rarely sell mattresses. You go to the groceries and you can walk away with a can of beans. You usually can't do that with a store that sells box spring mattresses. The product gets shipped from a warehouse and most of those stores are probably getting those mattresses from the same warehouse.

  • This doesn't change anything. After watching this I'm just back to square 1 of "oh darn mattresses are expensive"

  • Buzzfeed unsolved gettin' called tf out!

  • mattress review

  • Mattresses suck balls dude, No joke just sleep on the floor.

  • IKEA - what about their mattresses?

  • In Germany a store owner came up with the idea of making his own after being fed up with all the bullshit of the suppliers. Called it anti cartel mattress. Instantly won in neutral tests, had the same quality as multi thousand euro premium ones for a couple hundred bucks. He was bombarded with lawsuits and even direct sabotage with foam suppliers suddenly sending dirty foam to his small new factory or dropping out of delivering directly. He still sells them. Under a different name - caused by a lawsuit filed by the very mattress cartel he fought against.

  • Buy it from another country and get it shipped there.

  • joke's on them I'll just sleep on the floor!

  • Some of his episodes are a joke and totally off base. The Gun Control one was horrid.

  • I just sleep in a hammock :)

  • Adam keeps exposing difference instances of bad practices instead of targeting the source of the real problem..capitalism..i mean you can't exhaust all of the infinite possibilities..just aim at the root

  • Adam can sleep on rocks

  • So I guess I’m just gonna buy my mattresses from habitat for humanity/goodwill now 🤔

  • Everything was fine except the part about comparison shopping when buying online. Most of the online companies provide you with a trial period during which you can return the mattress.
