Yeah. We can't farm them up north here. Too cold. They're natively a jungle species. Which jungle? No one really knows.... I hear GM has a secret nauga farm where they are specially bred just for car interiors.
More info on the nauga in pop culture:
In popular culture
American singer and musician Frank Zappa mentioned Naugahyde in the 1967 Mothers of Invention song "Brown Shoes Don't Make It": "Every desire is hidden away / In a drawer in a desk by a Naugahyde chair."
British singer-songwriter Al Stewart referred to Naugahyde in his song "Gina in The Kings Road" on his 2005 album A Beach Full of Shells. Set in the swinging '60s in London, the song is about a young lady, popular with many gentlemen, with whom he forms a liaison about which he says "Don't you cast aspersions on my Naugahyde affair".
Naugahyde is also mentioned in the song, "Randy Scouse Git," by the Monkees. The line from the song is, "Now they've darkened all the windows / And the seats are naugahyde. / I've been waiting for an hour, / I can't find a place to hide."
Allan Sherman's parody of "Chim Chim Cher-ee" contains the line "My chair is upholstered in real Naugahyde; / When they killed that nauga, I sat down and cried."
Naugahyde is also mentioned in the Warren Zevon song "Mr Bad Example": "I got a part-time job at my father's carpet store / Laying tackless stripping, and housewives by the score / I loaded up their furniture, and took it to Spokane / And auctioned off every last naugahyde divan."
An extremely rare song by the Ohio group Devo, called "The Death of Lt. Casanova (AKA Naugahyde)", was played at The Crypt in Akron, Ohio, back in 1974. About three and a half minutes into the song, with bassist Gerald Casale on the lead vocals, the band backed him up, singing "Na-, Na-, Na-Naugahyde..."
There was a short-lived punk rock band based in Los Angeles in the 1990s named "Nagahyde Lounge" [sic]
Primus released an album titled "Green Naugahyde" in which they referenced the material in the popular single, "Lee Van Cleef".
In TerrorVision, the character interpreted by Mary Woronov mentions a new Naugahyde dress that she intends to wear.
The nauga has a Germanic relative called the kunst, from which they get kunst leder. (leather) It was quite common when I was in Europe in the 80s, highly favored by the various motorcycle clubs and fetishists.
