The unlikeliest product of the year has arrived: the Weezer Snuggie, which is being hawked in the infomercial above, packaged with the new Weezer CD, for the low, low price of just $29.99. Yes, the Weezer guys appear in the ad, and yes, the product is real. The band's frontman, Rivers Cuomo, told Rolling Stone about plans for a "Wuggie" back in May. "A Wuggie is basically exactly like a Snuggie, except it says Weezer on it," Cuomo said. "The people at Snuggie are doing it with us and promoting it with us. It's a totally legit Snuggie." Shame they didn't keep the Wuggie name.
