Matress Mick

Has anyone seen the signs all over the northside to check out this guy on youtube? I just did. Its like an even cheaper power city ad - pretty sh*t - but almost funny for a brief few seconds.

Mattress Mick is cool. He reminds me of ads they used to show in the 90s on Australian TV for small local businesses. His dancing is classic.

Bumped into him outside the Padraig Pearse and shook his hand. He's opened a new shop on Pearse street too.

Back in the day when I first saw him on billboards I called into his store to see if he actually existed!

I've seen him a few times in Harry Byrnes pub on Howth Rd. Legend!

He always has a big billboard in Killester, at the end of Collins Avenue. Beside the college. Had a friend living around there and he had a housemate called Michael who was on the elderly side and a bit sleazy, we called him Mattress Mick. When I was studying in Killester one of the younger lads from my course started laughing the the billboard too, his take was the same as ours - he does seem like a dirty old man with the cut of him and the name! Saw he's done some stuff for charity, and I agree the man is a legend. Definitely a Dublin character.

We decided to go to his showroom on Pearse St one day but it was all too warehouse-y and felt like we couldn't really go in just for a gawk so we left!

He's the image of my late granny. I'll be having nightmares tonight.
