It seems I have "eat your words" moments quite often. This week I posted about my love of infomercials and in that post, I very so slightly poked fun at the Snuggie.
Well, this very morning, on Good Morning America, GUESS who was on? THE SNUGGIE... they did an entire report on the Snuggie, and had everyone in the studio wearing them. The funny thing (well other than the weather girl giving the weather report in her Snuggie) is that they were slightly making fun of them, too. Even as silly as they seem, they reported that over 4 million, yes 4 MILLION Snuggies have been sold since September! And, if you are wanting to order one of the wonderful Snuggies for yourself, well, you will be waiting...seems they are are on BACK ORDER for months! It appears that "silly" sells.
You cannot possibly watch the Snuggie commercial and not chuckle... One GMA reporter said she had never seen anyone have such a hard time staying under their blanket, as the lady in the commercial who hasn't yet gotten her Snuggie... Bill Weir, another reporter for GMA gave his opinion on the Snuggie, "this is the garment that screams you never want your spouse to touch you again." As hard to believe as it is, Snuggie is selling, and well, I guess I owe it an apology. So Snuggie, I'm sorry for thinking that you were ridiculous and for thinking NO ONE would ever buy you.
And if for some reason my husband stumbles across and reads this, this does not under any circumstances mean that I WANT one now! (But I would still like a set of those "Sham-WOWs!") ha...
