Is this for real?


Maybe some of you have seen this commercial, or maybe you haven't, but you SHOULD! And for a couple of reasons:

  1. The commercial is just plain entertaining
  2. The people look like monks wearing them
  3. Initially, when you watch it, it seems totally ridiculous
  4. The more you watch it, the more it transfers you over to the dark side
  5. Watch it enough, and you may just NEED one.  **this is where I am now**


I long for the days when I used to cuddle up with a blanket on the couch and watch endless hours of TV uninterrupted.  The snuggie could take me back to those days. Now I am frequently interrupted if I get to sit down at all.  But it seems like with the snuggie, I can do it all.  I can hold Mitney in my arms, run to fulfill any of the nonsense orders that Reagan barks at me, and even cook dinner while staying warm in the comfort of my snuggie.  I may just light myself on fire, but I could always use the blanket as a fire extinguisher.

The snuggie has been getting much press not only in the blogosphere, but in the mainstream media as well.  For example, they were featured one day this week on the Today Show.  I believe these outlets have been making the same transition as I have. They are now at #5 as well.

Where are you now that you've seen it?
