Recently, Southern Californians have been cheering the return of their favorite CPA, Sit ‘n Sleep’s beloved, Irwin. After disappearing from the airwaves nearly two years ago, Larry Miller’s flustered-yet-loyal accountant is back, appearing in Sit ‘n Sleep’s hilarious 2010 Year End Clearance radio commercial. And, yes, Irwin is still being “killed” by Larry’s cavalier attitude towards mattress pricing.
Here, to help quench the public’s thirst for all-things Irwin, Sit ‘n Sleep owner and proverbial mattress-price slasher/accountant killer, Larry Miller, addresses some of the most frequently asked questions regarding Irwin’s return.
What made you decide to bring Irwin back for your Year End Clearance Sale radio spot?
While the dust mite campaign has been very successful, it was time to switch it up a little. Plus, Irwin complained because I wasn’t giving him enough work.
Where has Irwin been this whole time?
In his accounting office in The Valley, nose-deep in the books.
What does Irwin think about dust mites?
He’s disgusted by them. They scare him. He can’t sleep at night out of fear of dust mites and bed bugs.
Do people ask you about Irwin when they approach you on the street?
People ask me all the time to bring Irwin back. Now that he’s on the air again, people are laughing.
Are we going to hear more from Irwin in the future?
Possibly, if Mrs. Irwin lets him out of the house to record.
