Some time ago I wrote about the Japanese Arm Pillow, a sleeping accessory for lonely hearts. It was creepy — no doubt about it — but the Japanese creators had developed and marketed it with a sufficiently large dose of whimsy as to make it an entertaining cultural artefact.
The same cannot be said for the Hug-E-Gram. If you thought the recent Snuggie Blanket commercial marked the nadir of craven commercial pointlessness, watch this promo for the revolutionary Hug-E-Gram. Oh, you’ll need a hug when you’re done.
