Tempur-Pedic Enlists Drew Brees For New TEMPUR-Breeze Ad Campaign

Tempur Sealy International has teamed up with professional football quaterback Drew Brees to launch a new digital video campaign in honor of Tempur-Pedic's reinvented TEMPUR-Breeze line—a unique mattress collection designed to help regulate body temperature with a revolutionary integrated system of cooling technology. Tempur-Pedic’s new “Brees on Breeze” integrated marketing campaign will include a video series starring Brees and his “hot” teammate, pro football center Max Unger.

“As an athlete, philanthropist and sleep enthusiast, Drew Brees – who appreciates the restful benefits of cooling technology – is the ideal partner to help introduce the next-generation TEMPUR-Breeze line. Not to mention the natural tie between Brees and Breeze,” said Scott Thompson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tempur Sealy. “We’ve found that ‘sleeping hot’ is an issue that many can relate to – including some elite athletes. This innovative system is infused with proprietary PureCool technology to help keep you feel cooler as you sleep.”

Tempur-Pedic’s collaboration with Brees comes to life in a series of humorous videos featuring the quarterback in a variety of situations including a bleary-eyed wake-up call at 3:00 a.m. to introduce Max Unger to the new TEMPUR-Breeze, a bedroom face-off with Brees and Unger about who is cooler and a stunned reaction from Brees when he realizes the TEMPUR-Breeze is not actually named after him. One video even puts a new spin on the famous Tempur-Pedic “wine glass test”.

“I’ve been a Tempur-Pedic owner for years, and appreciate the company’s devotion to helping people sleep better at night,” Brees said. “The new TEMPUR-Breeze bed is truly a game-changer for millions of people who say they sleep hot. With the new technology, they will feel cooler as they sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.”

Consumers will have the opportunity to win the Ultimate Breeze Experience through a sweepstakes that launches in July 2016. Tempur-Pedic will reward one lucky fan with a brand new TEMPUR-Breeze bed and the trip of a lifetime to see Brees play in New Orleans this fall.

“I’m looking forward to the upcoming football season,” Brees continued. “We are fortunate to have such loyal fans and I can’t wait to surprise one of them with a special experience, including their best night’s sleep with the new TEMPUR-Breeze bed.”

The new TEMPUR-Breeze line delivers all the famous benefits of TEMPUR material – adaptive support, pressure relief and motion dispersal – while also leveraging proprietary technologies that are designed to help consumers sleep cooler and wake more refreshed. The TEMPUR-Breeze mattress features an integrated system of technologies that are designed to help you sleep cooler and more comfortably during the night.

“The people who struggle with hot sleeping issues aren’t just looking for a solution,” Thompson explained, “they’re craving a solution, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it to them.”
