The game began as one person tipped backwards, beginning a domino effect that toppled the 40 remaining mattresses.
In a twist, the final person to fall landed on a conveyor belt where he was furnished with a teddy bear, a sleep mask, a duvet and a pillow.
The mattress made its way along a platform and into the back of a waiting delivery van, whereupon it dropped onto a bed frame.
As a final touch, a young woman leaps into the bed, joining the original sleeper.
The van doors close and the newly assembled bed and its occupants are driven off.

Say what you like about out cousins in Great Britain, but they do have a sense of humor, although at times, it appears to be somewhat droll as anyone who has ever watched some of their comedy shows such as Keeping up Appearances, would attest.
Please don’t think that “Keeping up Appearances” is a good example of a British comedy show. It’s like saying “Blade: the Series” is the best horror-genre show in America (!)
“One Foot in the Grave” is the apogee of that sort of Gentrified Middle Class sit-com.
Best Brit series and probably best World ‘series’ is
the Brit sitcom ALLO ALLO about the French resistance during WWII.
Kind of like Hogan’s Heroes but incredibly wittier and cleverer.
Lucky guy at the end, there. I wonder how long they stayed in bed?
I love Hogan’s Heroes, my all time favorite. I would probably like the show you mentioned. I’ll see if I can find it. Thanks.
