I’m as big a Weezer fan as there is out there, but I’m not so sure I can get behind their latest idea (if true).
Behold, Rivers Cuomo rocking the “Wuggie”:
Like the rest of America, he’s obsessed with the Snuggie. So much that his band is — no joke — planning their own line of sleeved blankets called Wuggies. Cuomo told Rolling Stone, “A Wuggie is basically exactly like a Snuggie, except it says Weezer on it. The people at Snuggie are doing it with us and promoting it with us. It’s a totally legit Snuggie.”
Part of me feels the band would be better off giving their attention to the mysterious Album Seven. On the other hand, no one makes more fun of Rivers Cuomo than Rivers Cuomo, so as long as he’s having fun with it, why not?
