‘Barry Bedspringer’ Brings Facts on Down and Feather to Life
American Down and Feather Council Enlists Pillow Puppets for Consumer Video
New York (March 18, 2013) – As part of its ongoing consumer outreach campaign, the American Down and Feather Council (ADFC), has announced the launch of Pillow Talk! With Barry Bedspringer, a clever video which promotes the benefits of down and feather bedding while entertaining the viewer.
The video, which runs just over a minute, takes place on a mock daytime talk show called Pillow Talk where ‘Puffy Pillow,’ who is made of natural fill down and feather, is questioning if her boyfriend, ‘Dusty Bedpillow,’ is as natural as he claims. The show is hosted by an outspoken, wise-cracking pillow puppet, Barry Bedspringer, and features a ‘live’ audience of vocal pillows.
“With a goal of educating consumers on the many benefits of down and feather, we embraced the concept of Pillow Talk! With Barry Bedspringer as a creative and visual way to promote our message. It will be added to our arsenal of consumer tools on the ADFC website, www.downandfeather.org,” said Stephen Palmer, president of the ADFC.
ADFC is comprised of manufacturers, buyers, sellers, and processors of natural fill bedding products. In addition to focusing on the benefits of down and feather, Pillow Talk! With Barry Bedspringer highlights the council’s Labeling Compliance Program (LPC) which certifies that down and feather products meet specific standards for content, cleanliness and compliance.
