A few solutions:

1) Buy a wig conditioner (this will definitely work!)
2) Spray it with static guard?
3) Rub a Bounce sheet over the wig

I second the recommendation for using a dryer sheet. Although wig conditioner would work better, dryer sheets DO work and they're so much cheaper.

I would use pomade. All you need to do is rub a little in your hands just to coat them and then gently stroke the hair. It's actually hair oil, and it leaves my wigs so manageable-- I adore the stuff. And no rinsing needed. ^_^ Plus it's a great detangler.

Except that pomade is a styling product (wax/oil based...) and if you don't want to add texture to your wig, you probably aren't going to want to use it for anti-static. However, if the style is short, this will keep static at bay.

The dryer sheet also works. Or if it's a long wig, put a tiny bit of normal conditioner (you don't need to spend the extra cash on wig conditioner...) in a spray bottle with some water, and lightly spritz it down.

Or hold your wig in one hand, and a doorknob in the other.

Pretty much any method you can use to combat static in your own hair will work on a wig, it's just that wigs are more susceptible to staic because they are made of dry plastic instead of moisturized protein. ~_^
