Keepin’ Warm on Hoth

Happiness is a Warm Carcass Dept.

I ran across this on MAD production artist Ryan Flander‘s Facebook page. Like him I think it’s unbelievable:

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag


My favorite parts are the intestine print on the interior lining and the disemboweling light saber zipper pull…. and the fact that the kid in the picture is smiling pleasantly instead of screaming in terror. Nothing like snuggling your young Jedi up in the simulated stinking carcass of a dead tauntaun at bedtime. Sweet Dreams!


In fact it is unbelievable. It’s a April Fools prank. Apparently they do something like this every year on ThinkGeek.com. Brilliant, though.

    “And I thought they smelled bad…on the outside.” A prank?! What a waste of a good idea. This could make millions (if they made an adult size).

    I actually think its more unbelievable that it HASN’T been made. I mean, considering all the crazy Star Wars crap that Lucas HAS approved, I’m a bit surprised they missed this one. Still, its pretty cool. It almost belongs in a ‘MAD Star Wars merchandise’ piece from the eighties.

    At least the insides aren’t bloody red or anything. I don’t know exactly how well the kid would turn out growing up sleeping in that.

  4. Apparently they actually are trying to get it in production after all the requests for it.

    Hilarious, thanks for sharing!

    Not only do I wish this was real, but that they could make it in adult sizes….I’d sleep in it.

    What a strange world we live in. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if this does go into production after a few minor alterations by Lucas.
