The Snuggie Goes All Fashionable on Us

I haven't howled with laughter at a television commercial as much as the one for the Snuggie that I watched at about 12:50 a.m. today, Tuesday.
A woman was praising the Snuggie, the blanket with sleeves, etc., that looks like a blue or red KKK robe. But she looked at the camera with concern in her eyes, wondering when they were going to make one more "fashionable" for people like her.
Next, the announcer describes the new versions of the Snuggie as they are shown on the screen; one is leopard skin patterned, white and brown, the other zebra, black and white, apparently for women. He then mentions the new one for men, in "rich camel," as a man is shown wearing one in what looks like the old dessert boot brown.
Thank you, Snuggies, for making me almost fall off the couch and waking up Val laughing.

Ugh; those things look so ridiculous. Why do they have to pretend fashion is a concern? It's like a sweatsuit. If you're wearing one, fashion isn't your primary concern.
