Movie merchandise. Those commercial tie-ins often bring in more money than the movie itself, but sometimes marketers try a little too hard and miss the mark.

Writer and humorist Cole Gamble joins the show to discuss some movie merchandise, like the "Hunger Games" Snuggie, that just don't fit with the program.


Cole Gamble is the author of "Conquer Everything: Simple Ways to Become Better Than and/or Destroy Everyone Else," and a humor writer for Cracked and Mental Floss.
