This is a pretty slick over-dub of the original Snuggie TV commercial. Since it went viral the TV Commercial has been a target for ridicule and parody by internet pranksters ever since – but this version is one the best ones out there.
Delivered in a dry and under-stated voice-over, this is ‘Jaboody’ and his take on the ‘Snuggie Commercial’…..”Look at how much fun they’re having burning someone of a lesser race.”
As Snuggie blanket parody videos go, this one is better than most – fusing the Snuggie with Star Wars.
It has been said many times that wearing a blanket with sleeves, like The Snuggie or The Slanket can make you look like a Jedi – the long flowing robe, and the large loose sleeves make an ideal substitute for a Jedi robe.
And one enterprising video maker has now taken the original Snuggie TV Commercial – the cheesy one that made everyone say WTF and made the Snuggie go viral – and has spliced it with footage of Star Wars. You’ll see Yoda snuggling down in what looks like a Snuggie, you will see the original women from the snuggie waving lightsabers instead of knitting needles, and you will see Luke Skywalker meet his match against a gentleman being all warm and cosy in his armchair….and much more.
The force is strong with this one, so sit back and enjoy ‘Snuggie Wars’
This is another pretty good video to add to the huge archive of Snuggie parody videos.
This video takes the original Snuggie commercial that went viral in 2008, and chops up the visuals and audio to give a very different commercial for the Snuggie. No extra footage has been added, but through smart editing you get the commercial uttering great new lines like:
“The Snuggie is made from ultra-soft women and children”
If you ever needed any further proof to get a Snuggie, then all you need to know is that God approves of a good blanket with sleeves, and he positively urges you to wear one to Church in the winter months.
The Metro Baptist church, which is located in Goodlettsville, TN, dived headfirst into the Snuggie parody video scene and used the Snuggie as the ultimate excuse to drag your backside out of bed on those cold Sunday mornings and get your Snuggie on in Church.
PLus I have to say, a guy preaching in a Snuggie is pretty compelling viewing – kind of looks like a biblical robe.
In 2008 the TV commercial for the Snuggie went viral and burrowed itself into US popular culture. In fact it has such an impact the Snuggie was featured on the News, and even chat-show hosts often popped up on primetime TV wearing one to interview their guests.
The Snuggie commercial had such an impact that the product spawned hundreds of parody videos and the Snuggie proceeded to out-strip sales of The Slanket, a similar product that was released a couple of years before the Snuggie.
Now that is brand awareness that every marketing exec can only dream of.
This is one of the better Snuggie parody videos – it is in 4 parts and it charts the life of a regular student who receives a Snuggie in the post from his mother. Initially he scoffs at the gift thinking it will cramp his style and limit his chances with the girls. But after wearing his new Snuggie he quickly becomes addicted and empowered by his new blanket with sleeves – “I’ve come to the conclusion that this blanket is part of my life.”. He takes it upon himself to become Snuggieman and spread the love and comfort of the Snuggie.
