You know that you have stumbled on a product that captures the imagination of the public when parody videos spring up on YouTube. Check out the orginal Snuggie commercial and then enjoy the parody videos below. Some funnier than others. These are very tongue in cheek, contain some swearing – so if you are a die hard Snuggie fan that wouldn’t be able to see the funny side of random people on the internet making fun of the Snuggie, then you may want to skip this [also you know all the creators of these videos have a Snuggie and secretly love it].

Forbes recently interviewed Gary Clegg – the inventor of The Slanket.
On The Slanket website Gary writes that the slanket was born when he was a cold student, he writes:
“One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine’s winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O’Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother…and it was born.”

Slanket craze hits Hollywood, as action star Bruce Willis appears on the David Letterman show wearing the Alaskan Blue Slanket.
If an action movie star and all-round hard-man Bruce Willis can pull off a Slanket in public, the surely you can wear one in the comfort of your own home.
Joking aside, you couldn;t pay for this sort of marketing – I have no idea how Gary Clegg (the inventor of the Slanket) pulled this off, or even if he was involved. Maybe Bruce just loved the Slanket so much he did it of his own accord?
