The History of the Snuggie with World News Now

ABC’s World News Now explored some history about one the world’s most popular As Seen on TV products: the Snuggie! The piece begins with shots from a Snuggie commercial and a World News Now anchor saying it’s the “commercial that launched a revolution!”  It certainly was!

Both anchors celebrated their “Snuggie Appreciation Day” by wearing some green plaid Snuggies. They discussed the success of the Snuggie, the various prints available, a number of items from the Snuggie line, and how you can use a Snuggie for Halloween (it’s right about the corner!)
