A Cultural History Of The Snuggie

It is not often that an item from an infomercial takes off quite like the Snuggie did. And when you consider that it is nothing more than a blanket made out of fleece material with sleeves, the meteoric cultural rise of the Snuggie is even more head-scratching. However, strange as it may be, the Snuggie has successfully inserted itself into the public consciousness over the last few years, generating a cult following and becoming an important part of pop culture history in the process. And to think that it all started with a 2-minute infomercial.
