There Was a Weird Guy in a Snuggie

There are so many things wrong with this new (or new to me) Snuggie ad.

I mean, there are so many things wrong with all the Snuggie ads: low budget, bad acting, cheesy product, horrific sets; but this one? 

*shudder*

First of all, I would really, really love to see a man at a public sporting event wearing a Snuggie.  Because then?  I could mock him mercilessly.  It would be the most fun I’ve had at a game since watching Andre Agassi (back in his long hair days), who was sitting a few rows away from me in Cougar Stadium, get mobbed by autograph-seeking BYU co-eds to the point that when there was finally a lull in the starry-eyed line he took his shirt off and draped it over his head to hide.  Ahhhh . . . one of the finest football games of my life.

Second, and I’m about to go all PG-13 on you here so apologies and all that, there is something really squicky when jingle lyrics talk about how one is so happy that “my hands are free” then shows a man in a Snuggie looking at a centerfold.  All kinds of ewww . . . especially when he turns it around to show that it is a centerfold of a woman in. a. Snuggie.    Squicky and deviant, if you ask me.

And lastly?  The real kicker?  Oh my word!  A bunch of hands-free adults partying in their Snuggies?  What do you even call that?  A Snorgy?

And Tewt the Newt is wondering how many Truffula Trees had to die to create all that kink.

  1. Oh but every product sells better when the jingle is put to the Macarana tune!

    LOL… that is one hysterical, and yes, slightly eeeew product/commercial.

    I’m almost embarrassed to admit we bought my step-grandma a snuggie last year for Christmas (she pretty much sits on her couch all day. So it seemed a good idea). The sad part? They aren’t even well made – the fabric is thin and it feels like it will fall apart in your hands.

  2. I’ll be tailgating this weekend. I’ll let you know if I see any Snuggies at the game. I hope there are some, I’m feeling rather snarky.
