    Let's be honest now: the people in these videos look like they're part of a cult. My favorite part is where they're wearing the snuggies as the play the board drawing game.

    No, it's not a joke. It's the latest phenomenon--they even make them for pets now! :eek:

    One size fits all? With a scissors? Could Marrow Man preach in the dark one? Pink for Pentecostals! :eek:

    That woman could clean the house with one on though, so that's definitely a plus.

    I couldn't tell if this one was a joke. It looks real, but it says a non-product at the top. Which is it?

    LOL, where to begin with the video:

    First, there is a disconnect between what is being offered and what is written. The commercials shows a black one, but the graphics says "forest green."

    I have seen these in some stores, but there is a leopard print pattern there. Why the 'dis?

    The remake of the disco tune "Get up and Boogie" as the background music is classic!

    Have they considered marketing this along with other "As Seen on TV" products and making those the bonus offer in the commercial? Can't you see this offered along with the Clapper, or Chia-Pet, or the Door Draft stopper?

    I've only seen Snuggies in commercials and at stores, but I've never known anyone who owns one... and then yesterday I got to my dad's house, and his wife had purchased one. They are both dissatisfied with it because it is made of very lightweight material and as such does not do a very good job of keep one warm. I tried using it yesterday evening while I watched Spies Like Us, and I concur: It isn't very warm. And if your life circumstance is such that your likely to have to get up to do stuff on a regular basis (like if you have 4 young kids running around), you'll need something like a normal blanket so it can be cast aside quickly.

    So we'll be sticking with good-old-fashioned blankets, thank you very much.

    okay I will say it again, slanket > snuggie!
    here are just a few reasons: 1) is there a camo snuggie? Cuz there's a camo Slanket! 2) what if two people wanted to get in the snuggie? oh, what, they couldn't? Slanket's got your back with the Slanket Siamese!

    Wow! Now we know what to get Rich for Christmas: a Chia Obama ("yes we can") along with a family collection of Snuggies!

    Oops! Maybe that would create a problem. Would Rich need to salute the Chia head when he passed it? Oh, I guess not, it is only a clay idol, not his actual commander in chief.

    If it was good enough for St. Benedict it ought to be good enough for you. (They need to make a hair-shirt model, though.)

    It's also hilarious to see a sea of Snuggies at some game with one Snuggie-less person in the front looking as if he's freezing to death.

    It's like a Thneed, but not as versatile. :(

    The Snuggie and the Slanket remind me way too much of Jimmy Carter. Sorry, you won't see them at our house.

    Jimmy Carter? How so?

    It is the ads. They are all tied into having to raise the thermostat to keep warm / and or turning down the thermostat to save money. During Carter's years he was seemingly always telling people to turn down the thermostat and put on a sweater.

    By the way, I've never understood that turn up the thermostat thing just because it is colder outside. 68 or 72 or 78 degrees is the same what ever the outside temp is. Raising the thermostat doesn't make it warm up any faster. It only makes it warmer ultimately.

    one of my colleagues and his wife got matching snuggies for their one year anniversary. They were only half joking about it too.

    I'm so out of touch I that the first I heard of these things was seeing them for sale in the local drugstore. My first thought, upon seeing the picture on the box, was, "is this part of some federal program to combat global freezing?"

    It's way colder than normal in the Pacific NW right now. Normally you'd see portable heaters on sale. Instead, they are pushing these things?

    Yeah, Jimmy Carter days came to mind. Ah the horrid flashbacks of "national malaise" and the "moral equivalent of war."

    1977, the year I stopped wearing cardigan sweaters for ever:
