Tried the "searchy thing". Youtube did not have the current commercial. The supposed inventor of the product apppears in the commercial with the pillow grasped in front of him and keeps jerking it up and down. Does this pillow have a special orifice for 49% of our population? Is there another version of this pillow with a special protuberance for 51% of our population?

They are showing this ad right now.  He sure is affectionate with this pillow.

Also, what a terrible jingle. I could use a better pillow though.

I can't help it. I want my pillow. Anyone who has ever had any trouble sleeping may want to try this pillow. We like it chilly. But the bodys internal engine can make one wake up with a sweaty head.

I think the pillow looks pretty damn lumpy and it isn't made as well as pillows from any department store.

looks like a large version of the free pillow you get on airplanes. 

The guy looks like an insecure child with a teddybear the way he clutches at the pillow the whole time. How could they think that was a good idea? Are they trying to reinforce the idea of the "MY" in mypillow by showing how possessive he is of it? 

But the best part is the doctor they got whose expert testimonial is literally just "Normal people need a good night sleep so they can feel well rested."  Thanks for the late-breaking medical news, doc, I'm sure the science community is all abuzz with this information. And I love how he doesn't even say anything about the pillow itself.

I could imagine something to do with "his pillow" but it's a crime in most (if not all) states.

That reminded me of a commercial in the 60s or 70s for Trident sugarless gum, in which the announcer stated "4 out of 5 dentists recommend sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum".  Really?  I'd have thought they'd recommend Bazooka.  Even as a kid, I saw the ridiculosity of such a statement.

They probably weren't bought.  In fact, they probably weren't even surveyed.  They just made that crap up.
 
Still, even if there was such a survey, I wonder who that 5th dentist is who thinks gum with sugar is a better idea.  Probably one who needs the business.

I don't mind the idea that the pillow is kinda lumpy.  In fact, I prefer lumpy pillows.
 
But, there's a pillow out there that supposedly remains cold.  I love cold pillows.  I'd be more likely to buy that one than My Pillow.

It had an oriental sounding name, and was filled with buckwheat husks. It worked, but they were stingy with the quantity of husks. It needed about 2 1/2 times as much stuff inside the pillow; it tended to spread out under the weight of your head until there were two small piles on either side, with the sleeper's head flat on the mattress.

An annoying jingle and the most stupid pseudo-medical 'information' that I've seen in a while.
In the thirty-minute version, they talk about how a traditional pillow can cause a loss of blood-flow to the brain. That is COMPLETE bullsh*t. If that were the case, sleep would be a gamble with death, every single time.

You know, I would be more likely to buy this pillow if they didn't insult my intelligence with bullsh*t and aggravate me with a grating jingle. I could use a new pillow, and I like my pillow to stay cold. But their advertising strategy has basically removed me from their demographic. Nice job, guys.

'My Pillow' is back with a vengeance, now that we're closing in on XMAS.

Saaaaaay, I think I want one of these!  Mr. Aleen was laughing at them in the store, but I was quite enthusiastic about trying one out!!!

Of course I am the daughter of a woman who was very enticed by kooky products being hawked in commercials, like the errrrr... "Tap Teaser"

Doesn't work so well as a pillow and doesn't tease when used for 'tapping'

I could use one of those these days, but it seems the phone number in the commercial is now for a company called Groves Aerospace Consulting that sells airplane parts.  I guess, in a way, both products provide "lift".
