Mattress attack: Denver winds send blow-up beds into the air

A bed-themed pop-up movie night at a park in Denver, Colorado, proved to be a challenge for organizers when wind gusts blew viewers’ air mattresses away.

Footage by Robb Manes, who was at a nearby public pool when the beds took flight, shows a large number of mattresses tumbling through the aptly-named Runway 35 Park.

According to local media, some lifeguards and spectators tried to push the mattresses to the ground, but not all of them could be saved. Robb’s footage shows several people trying and failing to corral the wayward beds.

By 8 p.m., the weather had calmed, media reported, and the screening of “Anchorman,” staged by the itinerant Bed Cinema, went on as planned.
