Infomercial: Weezer Snuggie
From the press release:
The Snuggie blanket is more than a fun idea, impulse buy or kitschy TV ad; it is a truly innovative and ultimately functional product. It’s made of lightweight, soft fleece that keeps people of all ages warm indoors and out, with large, roomy sleeves allowing for free movement. It answers a basic need shared by many – staying warm and comfortable while having hands free to do what you please – channel surf, snack, read a book… or crank up the volume on your favorite Weezer song.
Those guys in Weezer, they certainly know how to tap into Internet memes. $29.99 gets you the Snuggie. But wait, there’s more. Order now and they’ll throw in the new album. For real.
This video is fun (as always) and it’s nice to see them doing something a little different with their sound (prominent acoustic guitar!), but I don’t know. Weezer just makes me sad. And nostalgic. They also make me feel like a killjoy rocksnob who can’t enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Okay, while I was typing this up I listened to the song a few times through and I’ll be damned if it hasn’t infected me. I like it. Fucking Weezer! Did it AGAIN!
