Partners & Spade collaborated with Casper mattresses to create “Better Beings,” a spot that brings testimonials from actual customers to life using one-of-a-kind puppets whose personalities are so convincing they don’t seem out of place in the otherwise day to day settings in which they’re situated. 

Customer Chris from Albany, LA is a purple Cyclops with a hip haircut, pausing from lunch with his friends to tell you about the positive impact Casper’s had on his life; Matt from Carmel, IN is a mop-top professor-type sharing his two cents about Casper’s value before getting into a vintage Mercedes; Tina from Harper, TX is an Avenue Q-like character with a flair for drama, lounging on her bed in a silky robe not wanting to leave it’s so comfortable.

Arts & Sciences’ Matt Lenski directed the spot, bringing comedy and humanity to eccentric creative for an essential everyday product.
