The folks over at ThinkGeek were just trying to be funny one April Fools’ Day, but they inadvertently tapped into something so popular it created a disturbance in the Force.
For a prank, they created a bedtime must-have, either for surviving a night on a frozen ice planet or for nerdy sleepovers with marathons of movies that take place in a galaxy far, far away.
Complete with an inner lining of intestines and opened by a glowing lightsaber zipper pull, this Tauntaun sleeping bag’s stock is sure to deplete faster than lightspeed — if it were real. But Think Geek will e-mail those who sign up if it ever becomes available.
A note addressed to “Tauntaun Fanatics” reads:
Due to an overwhelming tsunami of requests from YOU THE PEOPLE, we have decided to TRY and bring this to life. We have no clue if the suits at Lucasfilms will grant little ThinkGeek a license, nor do we know how much it would ultimately retail for. But if you are interested in ever owning one of these, click the link below and we’ll try!
Let’s just hope it doesn’t smell like Tauntaun.
SPECIAL THANKS ARE IN ORDER:
