Are you doing the Snugarena?

While this was never my intended post...it was too much for me to pass up.

This morning, as I folded my MOUTAIN of towells whilst the children watched a little Max & Ruby on the telly, the MOST disturbing vision came on the screen.

Now listen people, I get it, these things are comfy and warm, but let's not pretend that they aren't the most ridiculously retarded (my apologies to anonymous who nicely asked me not to use that word, but sometimes it just really expresses it BEST for me) commercials you've ever seen.

So, while I LURVE me some Pulsipher Predilections and her obsession with all things Snuggie (and really, if you're NOT reading her, you are MISSING out) I just can't sit idly by and NOT mock this commercial. (don't hate me Kristina for NOT loving on your Snuggies)

I implore you, take the 30 seconds of your life and watch this. Then share your thoughts.

Favorite part? Favorite move. Favorite random person on the street plucked to star in this commcerial.

Did this REALLY just happen?

My personal favorite...the "centerfold" chick in the pink snuggie, being held up by some guy like "this is so hawt, rrrawwrr."

Favorite "person": the old lady in the leopard print actually DOING the macarena in her snugarena. KILLING ME lady, KILLING ME!!!

And frankly, if I were one of these featured Snugarena doers...I would NOT put it on my resume, I just wouldn't.

Oh Snuggie, thanks for the eye cancer. I SO coulda done without that!

Hip swishes and warm fuzzies,

Allyson

I saw that the other day and fell off the floor. And then I thought Funny blog Kristina will love her some Snugarena....oh people!

I feel about Snuggies, the way you feel about jeggings.

Darn! I can't watch the video because I'm sitting in Starbucks and have forgotten my earphone. But I had to say that Snuggies make me cringe! My daughter loves hers, but no way Jose for me!
And "retarded," uh oh, I use that on a daily basis. I'm so not PC I guess!

Don't you think I didn't post this to my FB page, weeks ago.

And of course it's ridiculous. My favorite part is the dancing dog, proudly wearing his dog Snuggie.

OMG! I just tweeted about this very thing on Twitter a few days ago. I can't decide if it was brilliant or terrible marketing to combine two such eye-roll-worthy things: Snuggies and the Macarena.
