Working it in a Snuggie.
It's inevitable. Thousands of people will get a Snuggie this holiday season. If one of them happens to be you, don't put on your fake smile present face prematurely. Instead, put on the Snuggie.      After months of mocking the commercials, especially the animal prints (a zebra-print Snuggie?!), I found myself face to face with my very own Snuggie -- a leopard-print Snuggie. It was a gift from my boyfriend's mom.      What is it? A Snuggie is basically a blanket …

Because of their ubiquitous TV ads and appearances in catalogs, Snuggies have become enormously popular and something of a cult item. The Snuggies are essentially fleece blankets with sleeves that quickly caught the public eye - for better or worse. Comedians have made jokes about them, they have been mentioned or worn on TV shows, commercial parodies are all over the Internet, people wear them to sporting events, some even wear them on pub crawls. It is easy to make fun of the Snuggie, but I was …

About this product

Wiki

In late 2008 and early 2009 the "Snuggie" brand of sleeved blankets became a pop culture phenomenon, sometimes described humorously as a "cult". The Snuggie has become a camp icon.

The product became famous after a direct response commercial promoting the product was aired, leading to a mocking of the product and its commercial by comedians such as Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Maher, and Jon Stewart, as well as website parodies. It was featured on television programs like Today where cast and crew donned Snuggies for a segment which was described as looking like a gospel choir. Several hundred parodies of the commercial have appeared on YouTube as well as numerous fan pages on Facebook. The slanket was also mentioned in an episode of NBC's 30 Rock entitled "The Ones." The product has also been ridiculed as a "backwards robe" or simple reinvention of the coat on radio and television talk shows in the United States. Comparisons have also been made with the Thneed - a highly-promoted, amorphous garment in the Dr Seuss story, The Lorax.

On January 30, 2009 a group organized a pub crawl wearing Snuggies in Cincinnati, OH. In the following months they went on to complete over 40 more across the nation. Later, a group organized a Snuggie pub crawl in Chicago to raise money for an African orphanage, which led to similar sanctioned and independent events throughout the United States. A worker at Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative ...
