Sunny Kobie Cook sold the business and retired a very rich woman. She does speaking engagements occasionally and her history is a very interesting American dream/rags-to-riches/hard work story.

That one that tripped me up was on a recent visit to Canada, we heard the commercial come over the radio... same music.. same voice... same goup of singers singing the jingle... the only difference was they sang "Sleep Country Canada..."

The 'mattress lady' lists on her resume one of her skills as "driving".

"Mattress Girl" is a lot better than "Herpes girl" or "Heavy Flow girl" or even "My man has to use an enhancement drug girl". Sometimes I wonder why people would ever do a commercial for those products and then hope that something better will come along.

Emailed Sleep Country and asked them what happened to Mary Kae Irwin.
Here is their response for what it's worth.

"Thank you for your interest in our spokeswoman. We debuted a new spokeswoman, Jessica, on Tuesday, November 13th. The companys second spokesperson change since the original spokeswoman and owner, Sunny Kobe Cook, Sleep Country USAs strategic decision to update spokespeople every five to six years helps keep the brand fresh and focused on its products. Bringing a contemporary look to the company, Sleep Countrys new spokeswoman will be featured in all upcoming Sleep Country ads, replacing Mary Kae, who will continue to work in acting."

seems there are quite a few of us that are devistated. i actually find i DON'T watch the commercial anymore. guess that "keeping it fresh for the public" works if not watching or caring to wait the 30 seconds till it ends to move on is their intent. i bet $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ is to blame isn't it the cause of all things.

Not heart broken at all. Just dismayed that they would choose someone that looks like she just had a shot of lemon juice. Ah corporate america. Why could'nt they have picked Jessica Alba or Jessica Simpson. At least they did'nt pick Rosie.

I have to admit that I liked their commercials with Mary.

The one I can't stand is Mattress World. It comes on every morning and I get to hear some kid telling me to "Shhhhhhhh!"

I'll be by Sleep Country next time I need a mattress.

SHUT UP AND FISH!


Be pompous, obese, and eat cactus
Be dull, and boring, and omnipresent
Criticize things you don't know about
Be oblong and have your knees removed

That's Adspeak for "she was getting old".

If it makes you feel any better, my girlfriend and I actually got thrown out of Mattress World a couple of years ago. We got yelled at and everything. I guess we hurt the salesperson's feelings.

So we went down the street and bought a mattress from Sleep Country. They're not as sensitive.

Sleep Country
"She is getting old..."
Didn't look too old to me. Always thought she did a great job. Seemed kind and attractive. Just what I'd want representing my store.

Mattress World:
Yeah.. I'm really only bothered by their commercials.
I've never been in one of their stores. I've heard they are high pressure, but don't know.
Given my dissatisfaction with their commercials.. I guess I never will.
Thanks anyway. I think it will make me feel a little better tomorrow morning when I have to mute their commerical again.

The fishing better pick up soon. Things are looking pretty bleak around here! :lurk:

Maybe so, but still better looking.

Not going to speculate on this one.

Yeah, who gets thrown out of a freakin' mattress store?!?!?

Me, that's who. My girlfriend started it. I was just there as a spectator. Honest. :tongue: And I really didn't mean to elbow the manager in the stomach as hard as I did. I was aiming for his ribs.

No way!

Though hard as I try, it is hard to stay away from matress commercials. I try to stick to newscasters.

Now, speaking of bad commercials, if anyone can do away with;

"I know a place..." complete with the "not that there is anything wrong with that" dance by what looks like Bernie's brother or maybe cuz, I'm in for some funding!

I believe too expensive more than too old. Just like "i can hire 2 xxx for the price of one of you" kinda thing. My guess, and that is all we can do is guess, it was contract time and some money suit shows how this is where we can cut costs kinda thing.

i still am amazed at how much chatter changing this spokesperson has caused. lets me know how attached to product/company a persons face can be. i still say this is not an upgrade, doesn't look younger, different or more appealing. they tried to match her as close as possible which tells me they polled and found she was popular so they kept it close to the same looks.

I think you've hit it right on the head, on both counts! Don

Mattress World commercials are very annoying. And their guarantee is just a silly statement; "If we can't beat the price on a comparable mattress, then the mattress is free". Whatever.....The dude looks like he just swallowed a mattress.:tongue:
