Snuggie Blankie is Whackie

I had seen this commercial before, but last night I had the wherewithal to write down the name so I could look on YouTube today to find it. I'm not really one for courtesy laughs or laughing out loud at commercials, but this one cracks me up. I'm not even sure why. Maybe it's the black and white depiction of the poor woman struggling so mightily to answer the phone without getting cold. Maybe it's that these people look like they are either wearing hideous choir robes or are in some kind of fleece cult. My favorite moment is right around the 1:05 mark when the entire family is sitting in the stands at a game. No chance I'm sitting by that family if I'm there. I don't want to be handed any propaganda or hear any renditions of 4-part harmony "The Lord's Prayer" while I'm at a sporting event.

That thing looks like a fleece hospital gown. What's with the huge opening in the back? Is it a robe; is it a blanket? Make up your mind!

Something about that couple sitting on the floor playing board games made me laugh the hardest. I guess I miss these by having a DVR, huh??

I especially like the part where they say, "Super large! One size fits all." Hmm...interesting. :o)

Okay, is the "handy book light" actually some kind of sex toy on the down-low?

Also, they forgot to mention that the snuggie doubles as a handy burial shroud! To keep you warm for those extra cold nights in the grave :)!

Please know that, if you are ever at a sporting event clad in a snuggie and high-fiving your co-snuggie clad homies? This is a really good indication that you, indeed, need shooting.

Thanks for posting and giving me the opportunity to respond. I clearly needed it.
