Things got competitive when Ireland's most famous bedding mattress salesman finally met his US counterpart - Mattress Mack.

Mattress Mack, AKA Jim McIngvale, has become a viral sensation thanks to to his charitable efforts to help those affected by storm Harvey in Texas.

He posted a video offering to food, water and shelter to those affected, the clip quickly racked up over three million views.

Meanwhile our very own Mattress Mick has gained a cult following with his own promotional videos, his rise to success even made it to the big screen last year.

The two mattress giants finally got to chat today, thanks to Newstalk's Tom Dunne.

Dubliner Mick couldn't resist goading Mack, claiming he's the better mattress man.

He said: “I’ve watched all your videos, you inspire me, although I do think I’m better than you.”

He was clearly just taking the Mick as he agreed to meet next time Mack comes to Dublin.
