The Mattress Mick Documentary Last Night Had All Of Dublin Up In Arms

Last night, the IFTA award winning documentary of one of Ireland's most recognisable businessmen aired on RTE... Mattress Men, the story of Mattress Mick.

The film follows the true story of Mick as he tries to save his struggling business by creating a whacky online persona, with the help of part-time employee Paul (who stole everyone's hearts). Paul had been made redundant twice, fighting off debt collectors, and was trying to make the most of an opportunity by setting up a production company Shoot Audition.

Which brings us to Mattress Mick''s crazy videos...

We won't give all of it away in case you haven't seen it but basically, there's some real ups and downs when it comes to Mick and Paul's relationship, Irish Twitter was in uproar, and all of Dublin ultimately fell in love with the two lads.

It got off to a rocky start after people felt that Mick wasn't giving Paul enough credit...

But after an emotional incident in which Paul admitted he had been selling mattresses for cash, the two men moved forward 

And by the end, all of Dublin was won over
