Looks like the whole cult leader thing didn’t work out, because Tim and Eric are now mattress salesmen. The absurdist satire duo– best known for Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!— just launched a new series aimed at helping you catch your forty winks. Just in case you’re too freaked out by their other show, Bedtime Stories, to sleep.
No, this doesn’t involve Cinco products like the Sleepwatching Chair that the dad from Family Ties used. Instead, Tim and Eric star as Quirky and Geno Purple, aka the Purple Boys, new-age sleep gurus who, in the first episode, teach you how to avoid the Sunday Scaries, i.e. the anxiety and restlessness you feel at the end of the weekend because you don’t want to go back to work on Monday.
Yes, the whole thing is an ad for a mattress company, but, hey, some of Tim and Eric’s best work is advertorial: The “Vodka Movie” by Zach Galifianakis? Totino Boy? Watch the video at Tim and Eric’s Facebook page and stay tuned for more.
