Bejewell on December 20th, 2008

I’m not really sure what there is to say about this except that it is AWESOME and I’m now making plans to return every Christmas present I’ve already bought so I can replace it with this, because who wouldn’t want to look this fabulous AND stay cozy AND save money on their heating bill, ALL AT THE SAME TIME? 

  

   
The Snuggie is SO MUCH BETTER than just a boring old sweatshirt.  Or Ku Klux Klan robe.

The bonus here is that I saw this ad when I was sick and couldn’t sleep and there is absolutely nothing better than finding this on your TV at 3:00 in the morning when you’re trying not to think about the fact that you’re exhausted and feel like shit.   I became completely mesmerized by the awesomeness of the Snuggie and forgot all about my Haemophilus Influenza and accompanying insomnia. 

And then when I DID finally fall asleep I had wonderful dreams of me and the Big Bean giving each other high fives over the head of the little Bean at some random sporting event, all of us cozy in our matching KKK robes Snuggies.  

And the next morning I woke up feeling warm and refreshed and fulfilled. 

Coincidence?  I think not.

P.S.  There is no question in my mind that my mother will see the Snuggie as a practical option and not understand at all why this is funny.

  2. But i would look like Friar Tuck.

  3. Yeah, but it couldn’t be the KKK…don’t they wear white? Pink…must be communists, right?

  4. It’s a KKK robe…No, it’s trappist Monk robe!

    It’s a floorwax…no it’s a dessert topping!

  5. Ugh, I get at least 4 emails a day for this fricking thing! And I don’t know why! Yeah, great, fab… I don’t want the gosh damn thing just because they won’t stop emailing me! Hope you’re feeling better. Leaving tomorrow. Wish us luck on the drive! And it looks like the weather will be decent? Still bringing flip-flops…I have hope.

  6. Wow man. Is a sweater really not an option anymore? I do like it that if you bought these for your whole family you could totally look like a scene out of Star Trek or something.

  7. Since I was referenced I feel I must respond. The snuggie does look a little silly especially at a sporting event. But the book light would really come in handy when I’m trying to do my crossword puzzles with only the light from my two “green” light bulbs in my living room lamps. So there smartie.

  8. Well, hm.

    There was a Mystery Science Theater 3000 spoof on “It Came from Outer Space” ( I THINK that was the one) where this amorphous blog from outer space chased people at horrifyingly slow speeds and kind of enveloped them if they stood still for all of 25 mintues or something and so this kind of reminds me of that blob.

    But without the book light.

  9. you know I sent you one, right? NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES!!!

  10. BEEJ!!!!!

    I swear to you, this is the truth–

    I AM READING THIS POST WHILE WRAPPED IN THE DELICIOUS WARTHM OF A GENERIC SNUGGI!!

    Sorry to yell, but OMG! Honestly, I am wrapped up in the loving warmth of what I call a Slanket – a blanet with sleeves! I can do everything they say you can do in that commercial, except, oh no, no, no, I am not going out in public in my slanket, because (a) I do not enjoy sports, (b) while I enjoy s’mores I don’t want my slanket to catch fire, and (c) it would be totally weird.

    Once you go slanket, you don’t go back!

  11. P.S. Clearly I was so excited (and so very, very cozy) that I couldn’t even spell ‘warmth’ correctly up there…

  12. My son’s boyfriend is giving this to him for Christmas. He’s getting 2 so they can snuggie together! The fact that its open like a hospital robe in the back gives me some concern… but I really don’t want to go there.

  13. I’m totally with Papa on this one. I’d look like Friar Tuck. And that would be bad. Very bad!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Hey, this outta warm you up! We’re having a blizzard here. It’s all of -15F (with the windchill, 6F without it), so far have 11 inches of snow, and about 10-12 more to go and the wind is blowing like a bitch.

  14. Wow, such a great deal, 14.95 for a $60.00 backwards robe, and a $75.00 book light. must jump on that one!! =) ohh the things that air at 3:00am. Hope you are getting to feeling better!!

    Amandas last blog post..O Christmas Tree……..

  15. I so am revising my list to Santa. This would be perfect for blogging, holding the dog and my drink while keeping my arms warm. How have I lived with out it all these years?

  16. That commercial KILLED ME. To the point that I had to look it up on YouTube and watch it over and over. So funny in fact that we bought six of those silly things and are giving them as gifts to friends this year and a few relatives. It’s sort of a joke but I think a few people are going to get really excited by it. I will have to ask, however, if you ever see me wearing one at a football game like in the ad you just go ahead and shoot me bc my will to live clearly will have left the building at that time!!

    Feel better and thanks for coming by my blog!

  17. I love how they try so hard to make covering up with a blanket so darned inconvenient!

  18. F*ck me! I thought those things were urban legend! Now I can dress up like a Jedi during the day and be ready for my cult at night. It’s the best present ever!

  19. I’m wearing my snuggi, cleaning my house with that magic orange stuff and my hair is up with one of those plastic bands that turns every hairstyle into an elegant up-do. When I’m done both cleaning my toilet and waxing my floor with the magic orange stuff I will hang my oh-so-warm snuggi on the the hook that I attached to the wall with the instant epoxy. Life is so much better with late night tv inventors!

    Your brain is an awesome, funny and a little bit scary place!!

  20. So um, was it just the people in my area that used the phrase “Snuggie” to be synonymous with “wedgie”? Must be, because I can’t believe nobody else has mentioned it…

  21. I’ve seen the Snuggie. It was late one night and I almost ordered one for my wife as a joke Christmas gift. Damn, now I wish I would have!

  22. I am so glad I gave up drunk dialing infommercial style because I would totally own one or three of these. I think, instead, I will just sew all my ShamWow’s together to make my own, since they are worth shit either. That guy is a liar.

  23. To me, they look like priest’s cassocks, or maybe the Pope’s robe on dress-down Friday.

    Is this actually serious? If it is, I’m worried. Have we really run out of all the good business ideas? Also, why on earth do the people in the advert go out in public? They should be ashamed.

    The more I think about, the more chilly I am feeling, and the more I think I need a blanket with sleeves. JUST BUY A HOODIE.

  24. I saw this commercial this morning and I did spend about 10 minutes giggling. Especially when they were at the ball game, cheering in them.

  25. Happy Holidays! Whichever you celebrate…and even if you don’t hope you have a good day off!

  26. I totally want one of those things. You’ve seen the cheesey book light that comes with them, right? I’m struggling over the color I would choose, it’s between the burgandy or the blue, no seafoam for me, thankyouverymuch. I wonder how much money I’ll get when I sue the company once I fall down my stairs from tripping on my fleece blanket with sleeves. Thank God, for those sleeve holes, though. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to actually make that 911 phone call if I were wrapped up with a traditional blanket? As if.

  27. This commercial kills me everytime I see it. For awhile, I wondered what kind of moron would purchase one of these, and then I met some buyers who were thrilled and excited by their new snuggies! Who knew? The fact that this product is out there makes me feel like my own business will make me a millionaire…one day. Also, these people all look like they should join a cult.

    My blog sucks at the moment, so I thought I’d visit yours. Happy New Year!

  28. What cracks me up about this commercial is the fact that the woman is all wrapped up in her Snuggie but the bitch left the baby out on her lap in the frigid cold. What’s up with that?!?
