Here's what the sleeping bag itself looks like.
I love that it even comes with a mini lightsabre, you know, to have cut the tauntaun in half so you can crawl inside it.
Here's the full ad for the sleeping bag.
Really cool, huh? Yeah, not real. Totally made up for April Fool's Day. If you clicked on the "BUY NOW" button, here's the page it took you to.
I did like that they also messed with the little tagline right underneath the thinkgeek logo on the top left of the main page. Guess that should have been a clue!
But, APPARENTLY, a ton of people wanted it for real. Later in the day, a friend tweeted that thinkgeek had put up some more information about the "product".
On the Star Tours ride at Disneyland, they always tell you to stow your carry-on in the compartment below your seat. The husband and I, being language geeks, have instead decided that they're actually telling people to stoy their CARRION in the compartment below. Well, in the Star Wars world, the carrion would be your dead tauntaun. So how perfect would it be to bring this sleeping bag on the ride and stow it under your seat?
Yeah, I can see you looking at me that way.
I hope Lucasfilm actually either licenses it or makes it themselves.
Oh, and the Squeez Bacon was pretty funny too! :)
And, speaking of thinkgeek, here are some more spiffy products from them:
