Snuggie Fashion Show Inspires Infomercial Couture

"I'm too sexy for my Snuggie... too sexy for my Snuggie..."
This past Wednesday, those infomercial winter warmers, Snuggie slankets, stepped into the spotlight in their first runway fashion show and--

What?

Oh. I see.

You're thinking: "This is just another Cabbages Making Bizarre Things Up post."

Well, friends, sometimes real life doesn't even need spoofing. Check this out.

Yep, with its new "designer colors" like Zebra Print and Leopard Print-- (who knew all this time the zoo had been so, um, designery?)-- the Snuggie slanket has done a little turn on the catwalk.

And has given me the opportunity to repeatedly use the word "slanket." Sleeves + blanket = slanket. Say it with me: slanket. Let's all try working it into a sentence today just to see the looks on people's faces.

Ah, but I digress.

Due to the roaring success of the Snuggie fashion show--which NBC reports a whole twenty or so people attended, meaning each guest did some very enthusiastic roaring per person -- other makers of infomercial products are seeing their products in a whole new light.

And I mean really seeing them in a whole new light. Like these simply brilliant Tap Light Nighty-Bike ensembles!


These easy-to-stick, long-lasting lights give you illumination right where you need it-- even sweaty spandex! Now you can walk, bike, or jog any time of the evening, getting that important daily exercise, all while playing it safe in dark, dangerous alleys.

Then there's the Space Bag Self-Storage, for that person looking to be vacuum-sealed from the effects of naughty Mother Nature...

Helps keep skin fresh, too!

And not to be forgotten, the Pasta 'n' More Pasta Cooker Chapeaus are really taking off. Perfect for that person on-the-go who otherwise might not have time for a good wholesome meal...
Stylish and useful!

Yes, this year in fashion, it's really about combining artistic form with function. It's a busy, more practical world these days. Why not dress for it?

...

...

Slanket.

The term "slanket" sounds Jankie...But so does the term "Jankie", so I guess it's not as messed up as I first thought.

*ponders*

Mindful Slanket

You always make me smile, may I do the same for you.

Warning! although some Snuggie Dubs are funny, many are not safe to play in public.

This song is for my dear aunt; who was a compulsive buyer of Ron Popeil products. Bless her heart, my she be with Billy Mays, in TV heaven. Vegematic Song

As for poor Billy; word is out that he did not make it.

R.I.P. Billy Mays. If for some reason you are indeed in Hell, I would like to think you are down there selling Bibles.

CB Jones- Well, I guess the cheap knock-off Snuggie Slanket could be the "Jankie Blankie". :)

Walt- Crikey, Walt-- looks like I have some reading to do this weekend! :)

I have a blanket at my desk at work and my lead insists on calling it a snuggie because they are so damn ridiculous... its a robe on backwards... what's the point!

jay said...

Hahaha! I love 'Don't hate me 'cos I'm comfortable!' ROFL!

Who'd have thunk?

Jenn Thorson said...

Bella- Hm. I wonder if we could start turning our other clothing around backwards and selling it as something new. I'll have to think about that. You might be on to something there. :) (PS- I'm sorry you get Snuggie-teased at work. If they didn't keep offices so darned cold all the time, you wouldn't need it!)

Jay- Heh, I wondered if anyone would get that. That makes me happy.

The solution to bald men's problems everywhere, the Hair in a Can Spray did it for me. I just loved those commercials. We laugh but did you know Popeil won the Nobel prize in 1993 in Consumer Engineering?

I own a jade green soft fine wool slanket and I love it. I wear it at night when I'm camping, and need to crawl out of my sleeping bag to make a nature call. My slanket has two big pockets, one on either side. They are each big enough to accommodate a chihuahua, or a bog roll.

You can keep your llamas in pajamas lol ... I'm a backwoods slanket fashion queen. ;)

Jenn Thorson said...

Dufus- How did you feel about the Pocket Fisherman? For those times when you feel you need to fish NOW at this great indoor aquarium you happen to be at?

TimeThief- Oh, wow, sounds like you have the Advanced Super Slanket, because off-the-rack Snuggies do not have pockets, as far as I know. Yours is the latest Slanket Technology!

Please keep the chihuahuas safe. :)
