Cathy Rigby for Beautyrest Mattresses

I am not sure I ever saw this late seventies commercial when I was a kid, but watching it now it almost looks like Rigby is about to start break dancing on this bed. Which really lets you see some of the gymnastic roots of this still forming dance craze.

Why is it that when I jump up and down and play on the bed it is obnoxious, but when an Olympian does it, people buy mattresses? The world is a confusing place.
