Purple - The Raw Egg Test -- Is this a legitimate test?

I have been seeing a lot of ads for a new mattress called Purple on Facebook. The l nik is here:

In the ads, they demonstrate why all other mattresses are awful by using "The raw egg test" where they drop a plate of glass with 4 raw eggs attached to it onto varying brands of mattresses in an effort to demonstrate why their mattress is better.

Is this test a legitimate predictor of how well a mattress will help with pressure points? Does this test actually demonstrate anything useful with regard to mattresses, or is it all hype and tomfoolery?
