The Ugg Boot Vaccine Does Not Protect Against Cervical Cancer

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Do you hate Uggs? Then you'll appreciate this video, above. The kids over at Babelgum and LandlineTV put together this PSA about the (fictional) Ugg Boot Vaccine—a riff on the ubiquitous HPV vaccine commercials that are all over television these days.

"Three treatments of Uggcitrin will protect you from Uggs for the rest of your life," the ad promises.

How do you know if you've already been afflicted? The symptom list includes mistaking leggings for pants, holding oversized Starbucks cups to make your hands look more petite, wearing high performance outerwear as fashion statements, and tramping around malls like oversized elephants (um?).
