Just in time for all those Snuggie pug crawls... the Wuggie. Just like the classic Snuggie, but with 15% more Weezer goodness. Yes, that's right, Alt Rock band Weezer is lending their name to the Snuggie line of sleaved blankets. Or is it Snuggie is lending their name to Weezer?
Apparently, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo is a huge fan of Snuggie blankets. And who isn't? I often like to pretend I'm in a Baptist choir myself. There must be some geek rock fans at Snuggies because they are honoring the 90's group with their very own line of Snuggies, officially dubbed the Wuggies.
"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," Cuomo told Rolling Stone Magazine.
In other news, Ben Folds is endorsing his own line of ShamWow towels tentatively called BenWows. BenWows are currently in beta testing.
