Bill Maher in his Snuggie on TV

Bill Maher was one of the first in the US to wear a Snuggie on TV, and used it to take a sharp aim at American consumer culture.

One of the best entries in ‘Famous people wearing Snuggies and Slankets‘.

Ironically, despite Bill Maher’s use of the Snuggie to appeal to America and the Western world to get off their backsides, drag themselves away from self-absorption, and start learning how to make things again, he only really succeeded in making the Snuggie even more famous and helped to cause a spike in sales.

Still, I bet he got a load of free Snuggies out of it. 😉
