It all started with a nap. Meet Yawn Yawnson: the first-ever hype man for sleep. Silk-pajama-wearing Yawn contrasts the serenity that is typical in sleep marketing and instead channels the energetic and over-the-top style of today's motivational speakers.

In a series of spots produced for YouTube, Facebook and Instagram platforms, Yawn addresses massive crowds and extols the power of his go-to sleep solution: Nectar, a memory foam mattress with unrivaled comfort and an unprecedented 365-night sleep trial. His fans, also known as Bedheads, go wild and partake in mattress surfing as a happily snoring customer rides atop the audience wave. 

“Prioritizing sleep is a problem that resonates with all of us. Too often it takes a backseat to everything else in life, which is why we felt sleep needs a hype man – we all need a little Yawn Yawnson in our life,” said Gil Efrati, CMO of Nectar by Resident. “Instead of leaning into a calm, sleepy message like so many others in the space, we want to get consumers pumped about cozying up, hitting snooze and sleeping in, all on a Nectar mattress.”

The “Awaken Great Sleep” campaign was developed and produced for Resident's Nectar by Mustache (part of Cognizant Interactive), an award-winning creative content agency headquartered in Brooklyn, NY and focused on the intersection of engaging storytelling and performance-driven content.

“We all know a great night’s sleep is amazing, but most brands talk about it in a way that’s unoriginal and far from attention-grabbing, said John Limotte, CEO and Executive Creative Director, Mustache. “From a strategic perspective, we couldn’t have asked for a more aligned client partner than Nectar by Resident, as they allowed us to literally bring sleep education to life in an exciting way through the creation of Yawn Yawnson.”
