A weekend affair against lowly Detroit is suddenly commanding dollars normally reserved for marquee match-ups or playoff games, and all for a piece of novelty fleece.

    • http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2010/02/26/snuggies-on-parade/ Next Friday, the Cavaliers are trying to set a Guinness Book record by having the “largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets.” This, of course, is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of in my entire life. It’s stupid on so many different levels that it’s hard to pick just one But, I have to admit, despite that, I love this stunt. I love it because it’s so … purposeless . See, this isn’t a stunt to sell tickets — the Cavaliers sell out every game. This isn’t a stunt to get attention — I mean, seriously, the Cavaliers have LeBron James and Shaq. This isn’t a stunt to appear cool — is there anything less cool than wearing Snuggies after even the kitschy chic has worn off. No, this is … well, it just is just something to do on a cold winter night in Cleveland. Something to do because you CAN And all that’s fine. Make fun. The way I see it, next Friday seems as good a night as any for Clevelanders to come to a basketball game wearing Snuggies . And if they’re going to do that, they might as well set a record.
    • http://www.rapidcityjournal.com/news/article_2b0b63e4-2ae4-11df-9a43-001cc4c03286.html Snuggie madness For me, Snuggies rank right up there with umbrella hats, electric socks and cargo pants. Sure, they can be functional, but the half life of their run on the "still marginally fashionable" list seem to make them an uncertain prospect for any prospective buyer. Of course, one could argue that they generally won't be seen in public, only around the house. But that wasn't the case for fans attending Friday's game between the Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons, who set a Guinness world record for the largest gathering of people wearing Snuggies. The sellout crowd wore the fleece blankets for five minutes.
    • http://www.thestreet.com/story/10698039/1/cleveland-cavaliers-fans-set-guinness-world-record-at-cavs-snuggietm-night-presented-by-keybank.html
    • http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/cleveland-cavaliers-break-world-record This was definitely a great promotion, as I would love to take part in breaking a world record and take home a free snuggie. That’s way better in comparison to paying for an overpriced hot dog and giant foam finger
    • http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/columnists/hey----even-dogs-have-to-keep-up-with-pop-culture-86812102.html A stunned sporting world looked on as fans -- except for one (bad word) spoilsport wearing a Celtics jersey and another guy who brought his own Detroit Pistons Snuggie -- struggled into their "blankets with arms" for five minutes as the scoreboard clock ticked down to the record, which was confirmed by an adjudicator from Guinness.
    • http://www.popcrunch.com/cleveland-cavaliers-snuggie-guinness-world-record/ Snuggie creator Scott Boilen, who says he’s tickled that the Cavs’ are incorporating the popular body blankets into this world record event.
    • http://flisted.com/94149/snuggie-night-breaks-records-during-cavs-game/ For what can only be described as a stroke of complete genius, the Cleveland Cavaliers (and their amazing PR staff) decided to hold their very own Snuggie Night at The Q Arena . While many probably would think that the celebration of all things fleece would be a dismal failure, it was quite the opposite. More than 20,000 Cavs (and Snuggie) fans showed up, decked out in free Cavs blankets with sleeves that were handed out at the game. While not everyone donned their Snuggie when prompted to, enough people threw on their fleece to make the even “largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets in one place.”
    • http://blog.neco.com/2010/03/09/cavs-have-fun-with-guinness-snuggie-record/ It’s a fun PR stunt, and got lots of pickup.  To me, it shows a couple of things.  One, that the Cavs, who have done a few other fun promotions in the past, aren’t depending on just having Lebron James on their team to sell tickets.  These events help the team connect with the community and fan base, something they might really need if James ends up signing elsewhere at the end of the season.  Two, it shows that, marketed properly, if it seems to fill a perceived need, just about anything can be sold to the public and become a phenomenon.
    • http://www.clubhousecancer.com/2010/03/snuggie-night-with-the-cavaliers.html This is the absolute pinnacle of some sports marketing guy’s career. It doesn’t get any bigger than when a promotion you put together sets a Guinness Book record for something. In this case it’s a world record for the ‘Largest Gathering of People Wearing Fleece Blankets’. I like the guy who brought his own Pistons Snuggie. He’ll look great buried in it.

      • heck yeah im going in a record book and i get a limited edition snuggie which ive never had
      • haha those snuggies look awesome lol it reminds me of last years watch party at the Q when they had a "commercial" with moon dog in a snuggie lol priceless
      • I always thought for guys those things looked pretty dumb. But for a free cavaliers snuggie and record I guess I'd look dumber than a box of rocks . It just cool they're giving out something actually worth some good money to so many fans.   LBJ AND THE CAVS WONT NEED THEM SINCE THEY'LL BE SO HOT AGAINST THE PISTONS lol.
    • ESPN: http://espn.go.com/blog/sportscenter/post/_/id/33556/the-cleveland-cavs-join-the-snuggie-madness-in-the-name-of-guinness-world-recordry As ridiculous as the whole scenario sounds (and by ridiculous we mean "kind of cool and we’re sorta jealous we don’t live in Cleveland so we can help make world Snuggie history")
      • http://www.realcavsfans.com/showthread.php?p=785403
      • When I go to a Cavs game I go to see quality basketball, drink some beers, celeb watch (is that Usher's cousin?!) and watch the best player in the world. I think it's a joke that the organization is pulling this stunt. However, I am sure that the people at the game will have a good time participating in said stunt, so it's all good .
      • I don't know if this promotion makes me more inclined or less inclined to attend this game. One one hand, I've always wanted to be a part of a world record. On the other, I've never felt the need to wear a robe backwards in public. However you do have to hand it to the PR Department for the Cavs, they definitely go above and beyond to make going to see the Cavs at the Q an actual experience.

      • Fired? Someone on the Cavs PR staff needs a raise. Possibly the greatest sports promotion ever that doesn't involve a doughnut burger. And they have a promo photo featuring Andy Varejao reclining seductively in a Snuggie monk robe? Bill Simmons will get a three-part series out of this, under the tagline: "No, really, you can't make this stuff up.“ Absolutely brilliant.
      • The hoopla is geared toward "casual" fans, which comprise the vast majority of people who attend games . A great many people who attend games couldn't tell you Jawad Williams from Darnell Jackson from J.J. Hickson. But they know when it's time for the free t-shirts. Stick those people in the upper bowl, 300 feet from the action, and a simple basketball game without the flaming swords or Ahmaad Crump or free chotchkies becomes a snoozer. They have to be engaged otherwise, because they're just not that into the action on the court, unless LBJ throws the hammer down.
      • I dunno, Ten Cent Beer night sounded good on paper too. And we know what happened there!
    • http://thatfan.com/2010/02/20/saturday-pm-links-megan-fox-lindsey-vonn-cavs-fans-wearing-snuggies-and-more/ Shared headline with Megan Fox!
    • http://www.sponsorship.com/About-IEG/Sponsorship-Blogs/Carrie-Urban-Kapraun/March-2010/What-Has-the-World-Come-To--KeyBank-and-Cleveland.aspx Fans can also watch the making of the Cavs Snuggie Night on YouTube or connect with Snuggie Night on the Facebook Fan page , which currently has 324 fans. The Facebook page has mostly positive comments and someone actually posted a picture of a snowman wearing a Snuggie. Personally, I just don’t understand the Snuggie phenomenon. I did consider buying one until I felt the material. It was the most synthetic, itchy and seemingly flammable blanket I have ever felt and that was the “premium” Snuggie. Also, whatever happened to the Slanket? Anyway, I have to admit that this promotion makes me smile and Snuggie Night seems to have struck a chord with fans. Well done KeyBank, Snuggie and Cavs
    • http://www.basketballforum.com/nba-forum/439842-cavs-lame-fun.html Hard to criticize a franchise trying to do something fun for the fans, even if you don't think it's all that fun. With the best record in the league and Lebron James on the court, it'd be very easy for marketing and promotions to just coast for the rest of the season, guaranteed a sell-out every game(what else is there to do in spring in Cleveland?). They're putting forth an effort for the fans, good for them.

    • Popfi: http://www.popfi.com/2010/02/25/world-record-snuggie-night/ Want to be part of a world record?  Sure, we all do!  That’s why you should head up to Cleveland, Ohio, on March 5.  If you’re lucky enough to be one of the 20,562 fans crowding into KeyBank Arena, not only will you get to see the best basketball player in the world do his thing, you’ll also get a free Snuggie, a commemorative magnet, and a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records .
    • Cavs Marketing Dept. Needs to be Fired http://www.redsarmy.com/home/2010/02/cavs-marketing-dept-needs-to-be-fired.html Umm this is the Cavs PR people trying to do something fun (albeit corny) with the fans. Why you guys are turning it into a LeBron bashing thing is beyond me

Also, there is a little jem for all you Varejao haters. There is a pic of him in some lame Cavs snuggie laying on a couch. Good times…for us. I personally love the snuggie and would jump at the chance if/when the Magic markets one I used to make fun of the snuggie until I tried one out at a friend’s house when I stayed over for a weekend. Now I really want one. They’re awesome. I just love any chance to dislike the cavs more than I already do. If the magic did it I would be all over that. But bc it’s the cavs it’s hilarious. I would've died to have had one in Boston

Like Vince, I am intrigued at the thought of be a part of a Guiness World Record breaking event…on the other hand, I would almost rather not be a part, than be part for that. Regardless, that pic of Andy is hilarious. But are all of the Snuggies gonna be that big? I mean, that is big enough to cover Andy and then some! The Cavs Try To Set World's Dumbest Record - Jockism http://www.jockism.com/2010/02/25/the-cavs-try-to-set-worlds-dumbest-record/ Cavs To Set World Record For Sissiest World Record http://deadspin.com/5479770/cavs-to-set-world-record-for-sissiest-world-record Before I hear howls of protest from all of you Snuggie-loving hordes out there, let me say that I have nothing against the Snuggie. Heck, I think going for a world record in fleece is hilar- er, great. http://www.nowpublic.com/strange/cleveland-cavaliers-snuggie-night-aims-guinness-world-record-2582834.html The Cleveland Cavaliers and KeyBank have come up with one of the most clever PR concepts of all time as they try to get fans to help set a Snuggie ™ wearing Guinness World Record . On March 5, 2010 Cavaliers fans will get a chance to set a world record for the "largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets.“ I was at the game on Friday. The Snuggies were a promotion with Keybank. I think it was a great idea considering ticket prices went up and over 20,000 fans were early for the game. It was supposed to be funny. Everyone had snuggies--- the players, Moondog, the cheerleaders, and everyone working at the game. At least they didn't give out coupons to file free tax returns like the Nets. The fans had a blast--- and when the Cavs were down by 21, we didn't throw our snuggies on the court. Are you on pins and needles waiting for satirists to create YouTube videos that mock your earnest marketing efforts? Probably not. But in a post at his blog, Seth Godin says there's actually a good reason to embrace jokes made at your expense: It means that people have not only noticed what you do, they've also taken the time to react.

Have you considered attempting to set a Guinness World Record at your venue? Sports organizations looking for ways to enhance their premium giveaway nights should take a moment to benchmark the Cleveland Cavaliers' recent Snuggie Night presented by KeyBank . The team took the Snuggie giveaway night to the next level by asking all fans with a ticket to arrive early to the game to partake in a Guinness World Record attempt. The offer was so enticing, tickets were rumored to be going for 10-times face value for the event. For the first five (5) minutes of the game, 20,000+ rabid Cavaliers fans wore their Snuggie, helping the team set an official record for most fleece blankets of one (1) colors worn in one (1) place: 20,562. While fans put on their cool premium giveaways, so did Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and the Cavs' dance team, who were given custom versions. Even the Cavaliers and Pistons players were given special, large-sized versions of the Snuggie premiums with their names and numbers monogrammed. What are the chances of setting your own official Guiness World Record? Unfortunately, just 3% of the 60,000 applications submitted on an annual basis are approved and executed. But they can always say no... Check out a video of the Cavs' Snuggie execution below! Well done, especially to KeyBank on their post-event execution featuring a microsite with pictures, videos, and a sweepstakes offer for fans who weren't able to attend!

So it’s even getting mention down here. They just twittered a photo of him in it. Todd http://img709.yfrog.com/i/61h.jpg/ http://twitter.com/bobanddan http://www.bobanddan.com/

The Los Angeles Angels will attempt and likely break the Cavs' record of 17,758 fans in fleece set with much fanfare on March 5. The Angels will be giving away Hideki Matsui fleece blankets for their April 6 home game against the Minnesota Twins. They are hoping to get as many as 40,000 fans at once, which would smash the Cavs' fresh Guinness Book of World Records mark.
    • http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/the_sporting_blog/entry/view/59649/shanoffs_wuc_obama_bracket,_tebow_pro_day MLB Spring Training: Is it any coincidence that the day SN runs its Angels preview — and they will be in a fight with the Mariners this year for the AL West — that the team announced that they are going to try to break the world record for most people wearing Snuggies (OK, so they say "fleece blankets," probably for legal reasons), a record recently attained by the Cleveland Cavaliers and their fans? You can already see that the crowd-wearing-Snuggie thing is going to become a huge game of "Can-You-Top-This?", only ending when the Cowboys decide to cram 100,000+ people into Snuggies in their stadium. (That is: Until Tennessee Volunteers fans decide to amp it to 110K ... Do you see how this becomes an arms race — WITHOUT SLEEVES?!
    • http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/the-angels-are-going-for-the-snuggie-record.html.php According to the release, the current record for the largest gathering of people wearing "fleece blankets" is 17,758 set by the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 5th. That, of course, was widely billed as the "Snuggie" record , named after those ridiculous wearable blankets. I suppose the keepers of the record books make them call it the "fleece blanket" record so that the Snuggie corporation doesn't get free advertising out of the deal. You know, like the beer company that is the namesake of the record book sanctioning the record.
