Wait and bark: Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg shares dog’s reaction to new mask

Not only do Slipknot‘s masks terrify humans, but they’re pretty confusing to dogs, too.

Drummer Jay Weinberg posted an Instagram video of his dog, a Brussels Griffon named Papaya, reacting to his new mask. Weinberg placed the mask on the floor next to Papaya, who then proceeded to circle and sniff it intently in between intermittent barking.

That the mask might have an interesting smell for dogs probably shouldn’t be that surprising, given that a tour laundry specialist once deemed garments worn by Slipknot to be the “most soiled” he’s ever handled.

Weinberg debuted his new mask during Slipknot’s performance at Knotfest Los Angeles last week. The show also featured the live premiere of the Knot’s new single, “The Chapletown Rag.”
