The Snuggie

I love the Snuggie. You love the Snuggie. I just read that it's the number one As Seen On TV product right now!!! Of course we all knew it would be a success. I've often wondered why blankets didn't come with sleeves. When I sit on my couch for more than 8 hours straight, the last thing I want to do is reach out my hands to grab a few bon bons or change the channel with my remote. Never again will I have to move any more muscles than absolutely necessary. The popular "WTF Blanket" video explains my thoughts perfectly (note that as with many YouTube parodies, these versions are PG-13 - most potty words are bleeped out, but this is not intended for children that haven't been out in public yet)...

I've reviewed all the Snuggies YouTube posts so you don't have to. My all-time favorite comes from midwest radio station. You're gonna love the "In a Snuggie" rap video...

Of course, as a true fan of As Seen On TV products and ads, I also appreciate the original Snuggie ad. I must admit that I enjoy using the Snuggie much more than I ever thought I would, though I wouldn't be caught dead using it in public, like the stadium scene suggests. One more missing element from the ad is how the moment you put on the Snuggie, you can't help but want to get up and dance. So maybe the Snuggie will help all of the couch fans become more active and eventually fit into the "one-size-fits-all" Snuggie. I have to give this product a 7 out of 10 rating. For the price, it may not keep you any warmer than a regular blanket, but it's so much more fun to use!
