As the weather warms and the number of people wearing their Canada Goose jackets lessens, there will still be that one odd person that wears the jacket in mid April.
So as the hype dies down, I’ve been given time to reflect and think about just why people still cling onto their jackets. So sit back and don’t relax, continue to read.
Canada Goose is the quintessential adult comfort object.
What’s a comfort object you ask? Well it’s dominant in children, you know, their “security blanket/pillow/stuffed animal,” an object that represents psychological comfort. For children, security objects, also known as transitional objects, help a child grow psychologically as they separate from their mother - they become more independent.
And adults still use comfort objects! At the risk of sounding obtuse, I am fully aware that comfort objects aren’t necessarily frowned upon. They, after all, help people cope with stress and anxiety.
So how does Canada Goose fit into the picture? Well, it can be argued that Canada Goose jackets help unfashionable people or followers; those without the freedom of mind not to follow the flock; or those that don’t understand there are jackets out there that are just as warm; or people that don’t realize Toronto isn’t really all that cold… People that cling heavily onto their Canada Goose jackets are subconsciously using their jackets as adult comfort objects - objects that help them with fears, anxiety and stress…
the fear, anxiety and stress of being a Canada Douche.
So what do you guys think, is Canada Goose an adult comfort object? What other adult comfort objects do you associate with doucheness?
