However, there’s one package in the band’s online store for the especially adventurous fanatic (or Martin Shkreli): a $25,000 ultimate “Weezer Experience Bundle” that includes a Rivers Cuomo-accompanied trip to the Galapagos.
The package’s full offerings:
— Take a Greyhound to the Galapagos with Rivers where you’ll stay only for a limited time
— Once you get to the islands, you’ll go bird watching to try and find the elusive White-cheeked pintail
— You’ll go on a catamaran ride to Charles Darwin Research Station
— Sing ‘the British are coming’ with Rivers in the Galapagos but replace every lyric about “old king george” to “lonesome george”
— Enjoy your complimentary signed copy of the album and a pair of tickets to see the band on their summer tour with Panic! At the Disco
— Finally, you’ll be named King of the World for a day
Consequence of Sound has reached out to Weezer’s reps regarding the authenticity of the bundle (I’m fairly sure one can’t take a Greyhound to the Galapagos, but what do I know!), however, we’ve yet to hear back. Even if it isn’t real, I can’t see Cuomo turning down a fan willing to spend $25,000. So yeah, it’s time to crack open that piggy bank, friends.
