Purple files 103rd patent, introduces new tech to combat ‘Sunday Scaries’

Comfort technology company known for disrupting the mattress industry pairs with sleep gurus

ALPINE, Utah, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Purple Innovation, LLC, a leading comfort technology company known for creating the “World’s First No Pressure™ Mattress,” announced today the formal filing of its 103rd patent. Purple’s revelation follows a leak of internal documents revealing details of its latest comfort tech creation.

The patent filing addresses technology and intellectual property associated with a mind-blowing invention designed to increase and deepen zonks named “The SKWARE.” This newest innovation from Purple soothes the mind and maximizes comfort, providing relief from the “Sunday Scaries,” defined in the patent filing as “…the feeling we all get when the weekend is over and the dreaded work-week lies ahead.”

Developed in partnership with noted sleep gurus Geno and Quirky Purple, The SKWARE is the latest project from Purple’s secretive Advanced Slumber Development (“Sleep Works”) lab. The patent documents span 19 detailed pages of technical schematics, stock photo collages, arcane diagrams and sleep philosophies. To obscure certain trade secrets, several pages are redacted and written in Greek.

The internal document leak occurred as Purple launched a sleep technique video series featuring Geno and Quirky. In the series, the sleep gurus will demonstrate how to solve the “Sunday Scaries” with the help of Purple® Mattresses, The SKWARE, and Geno and Quirky’s proprietary “Sleep Solutions to Zonk You Out.”

Disclaimer
The statements made in this release are a work of satire. Such statements are made in conjunction with a marketing campaign with the “Purple Boys” also known as Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim also known as the comedy duo Tim and Eric. Statements made in this release are not intended to be taken as truthful. The “SKWARE” is a parody of an existing Purple product called the Purple® Squishy. The “patent documents” are real documents and they have been used to apply for a United States Patent, which is currently Patent Pending (Provisional Patent Application No. 62/716,726). The company does not expect the patent to be approved considering the “patent documents” are a work of fiction created by Facebook’s Creative Shop for the “Purple Boys” marketing campaign. These statements are not guarantees of future products, business strategies, or product launches in real life. The following statements are not true: this is not the Company’s 103rd patent, it’s actually the 109th; the Company’s secretive Advanced Slumber Development (“Sleep Works”) lab does not exist; the SKWARE does not increase and deepen “zonks” because “zonks” are not a thing.
