Thanks for the explanation, Darwin. I wouldn't buy the Snuggie blanket either.
I think that these videos show that we have some serious problems:
1. Many not very useful products have invaded the market and people buy them just to be in the trend (it's like fashion, each year we need to buy a new model of socks
2. Many brands that 10 or 20 years ago created good, lasting products now manufacture mediocre products. I think that in the beginning they really wanted to create high quality goods, now they only want high profits, which is not a bad thing in theory. The only problem is that we in their search for higher profits they hurt our interests.
So what can we, as customers, do? (especially for point 2)
Are there any brands left that offer quality first (and not arguments like: buy this product because everyone uses and you must use it too)?
I hope I am not off-topic.
