Mattresses at an open-air cinema event in Colorado tumbled like fallen dry leaves when strong winds lashed the Denver neighbourhood of Stapleton.
A video footage of the mattresses, which had been set up for a 'Bed Cinema' outdoor event, shows dozens of air mattresses flying into the air as strong gust of wind kicks up. People can be seen chasing the mattresses as they fly away over fence and into the neighbouring swimming pool.
According to NBC News reports quoted in NDTV, the hilarious video was captured by local resident Robb Manes, who dubbed it "The Great Mattress Migration of 2019" while posting it on YouTube. The video has collected over 200,000 views along with a number of amused comments.

Speaking to the Denver Post Manes said, "We were just sitting in the pool and all of a sudden, two mattresses flew in. At first, it was confusing." He further added, "Although we felt really bad for the event people, we thought it was absolutely hilarious."

One person wrote reacting to the video: 'Title sounds like something out of a Douglas Adams book', while another wrote: 'This is funny! Amazing, really'.
