Weezer to release own Snuggie blanket

Band team up with blanket company for the 'Wuggie'

Weezer have teamed up with a leading US blanket company to produce their own branded blanket, according to reports.

The band are set to get their own ‘Snuggie’, which is a blanket with sleeves, and instead will call the item a ’Wuggie’.

Frontman Rivers Cuomo says that the product is a legitimate Snuggie, and the company will help promote the item with the band.

“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.

As previously reported, Cuomo released a live DVD in April entitled ‘Not Alone – Rivers Cuomo & Friends Live at Fingerprints’, which was recorded at Fingerprints record store in Long Beach, CA.
