The up-and-coming mattress brand Nectar Sleep partnered with TV star Mayim Bialik, utilizing her background as a neuroscientist, to dive into the importance of a good night’s sleep for the human brain in the digital video campaign called ‘Real, Sleep Science from Mayim Bialik.’

Bialik dons a lab coat and states that, in the ongoing battle with her brain and her heart, her brain and the sleep that fuels it, should reign supreme. In the nearly two-minute video, Bialik implores over-tired Americans to wise up on how a lack of sleep affects the brain. She cites that when our brains get tired, our hearts take over and “some of the biggest mistakes you’ve ever made” start happening – like dating a coworker and other relatable and regrettable scenarios. She also gives examples of some of a rested brain’s most groundbreaking and joyous inventions ranging from toe socks to space travel.

Throughout the campaign, Bialik is accompanied by Nectar Sleep’s signature CGI brain character, along with a new CGI heart character to the mix as a way to touch on just how stressful and emotional decision-making can be after a bad night’s sleep on a low-quality mattress.
