Fuggly: Sketch Parody of the Snuggie Commercial

The Canadian sketch comedy TV show This Hour Has 22 Minutes produced a dead-on parody of the Snuggie commercial. Here the “Fuggly” blanket with sleeves is touted as the perfect companion for any supernatural rites you may be planning:

Frankly, I don’t think the Fuggly sketch is super-funny, but it is a very perceptive re-creation of the original Snuggie commercial:

  • I don’t know. Reproducing the orginial commercial with a new name and adding new scenarios to use with the product doesn’t really equal parody or satire.

  • Yeah, I don’t think the sketch is super-hilarious, but the “Cast spells,” “Stir your cauldron”, etc scenarios bring out the cult-robe appearance of the Snuggie. Not a new or original thought for anyone who reads this blog. But for people who’ve seen the Snuggie commercial yet have never heard a joke about it, this sketch might be mildly amusing.

  • Just a minute ago, I saw spike Feresten spoofing Snuggies with a product called “Snuggly”. He mopped the floor using it (of course, while his son wearing it) and even used it to cleanse himself in the toilet.

    now I see Lisa Kundrow wearing it (which was a gift from spike), and being interviewed by Spike.

    I’ve not yet seen the Canadian video, so cannot comment on who might have copied whom between the two (if that happened).

  • The name/spelling is Kudrow, right?

  • Ok, Now I saw the Canadian one too. Spike’s and the Canadian spoofs are not copy of each other.

  • Spike Feresten’s Snoogly (and not “Snuggly”, as I previously wrongly mentioned) is here:

    This is a long video. So please look for Snoogly just after 15.50 minutes.
