Snuggalicious

February 3, 2009

One word – Snuggie. I first saw an infomercial for the Snuggie last November and immediately became fascinated with the ads that show the horrors of using a conventional blanket to keep warm. I have decided that the Snuggie has taken over the world.

Outlined below is evidence to prove my point

  1. The Snuggie video on Youtube.com has reached 544,118 views 
  2. I talk about the Snuggie at least once everyday
  3. There have been requests from journalists (via ProfNet) asking if people are using the Snuggie to save heating costs
  4. USA Today wrote an article on 1/29, highlighting the infiltration of the Snuggie into American life (someone was spotted by Fox wearing one during the inauguration!)

The Snuggie has a few competitors that try as they may – cannot compare (i.e. the Slanket). The cult following that has developed has also sparked some critics – meet the WTF blanket

What makes the Snuggie so great?snuggie-sports

  1. You can answer the phone without getting a chill
  2. You can look like you are a member of Heaven’s Gate
    cult
  3. You can wear them in public at sporting games
  4. Walgreens now sells them for 14.99 (beware it only comes in royal blue in stores) (oh and Bed, Bath and Beyond supposedly sells them too )
  5. The Snuggie creators made a AWESOME ad for next to nothing (I am sure!)

Prevent chills and frustration – get a Snuggie.

    Hahahaha! CW, why am I not surprised that this is the topic you chose to post about? You better watch out – if you keep talking about that damn blanket I’m going to have to buy one for you at Walgreen’s.

    Who would have thought that this thing would have become a viral hit? I have to admit that I always smile when I see the ad. Remember all of the Billy Mays commercials? On my site (linked here) I made a small list with links to his stuff. Now those are funny!

    The WTF blanket video is the best thing I’ve seen since the “Put a Ring on It” video with the fat guy.
