‘Snuggie’ taking over cable news channel breaks

It’s a little off-topic, but we thought we’d take the time to make note of the plethora of Snuggie commercials that show up on cable news channels.

Time Magazine has taken note of the trend, pointing out that the product reminds some of a satanic cult’s outfit.

While these ads have always been a staple of cable television due to its low cost, apparently they’re showing up more now since networks need to fill ad slots and, consequently, are going for much cheaper than normal.

The Snuggie isn’t the only informercial-like ad that’s making increased appearances lately. There’s also Mightly Putty and those sound enhancers that look like cell phone headsets… At least someone is making money?
