    I Saw a Giant 27 ft Long Hot Dog While Shopping at my Supermarket Today! - Pics

    I went to my local supermarket to do some shopping today, and discovered that they were having a big sale on Oscar Meyer products. And guess what? To celebrate the promotion, one of the six Oscar Meyer Wienermobiles in the nation was present!!

    I had never seen the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile before, although I can remember them from many decades ago as a child, along with the sales jingle: "I'd Love to Be an Oscar Meyer Wiener"

    It turns out that Oscar Meyer still has 6 Wienermobiles in operation around the country, continuing to do tours to promote their products. They even have their own Blog website. So if you would like to see if the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile will be coming to your town soon, just check their schedule at this web address:

    http://hotdoggerblog.com/

    I really cannot come up with words to compare the Wienermobile to other vehicles:




    How would you like to be on the highway driving behind this??




    The Wienermobile was constantly jammed with parents taking their kids inside to see it, while I was there:




    The Wienermobile drivers call themselves "Hotdoggers" Each Wienermobile has two Hotdoggers assigned to it. They were super fun and friendly:




    Here is what the inside of the Wienermobile looks like:

    No built in grill for dogs on the go? Very interesting vehicle with a long history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wienermobile

    One of the drivers did confirm to me that this was one of the 2004 Generation Wienermobiles mentioned in the Wiki article that you noted. There are a total of six of them stationed across the country. The one I saw is dedicated to the Northwest section of our country.

    There is also a new mini-Wienermobile now, that is based on a Mini Cooper S. However, it just does not seem at all the same. I think it looks rather silly, myself.

    Here is what it looks like:

    Awesome!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    No, the truth of that story was that someone stole the custom license plates off of one of the current batch of Wienermobiles back in 2007. The license plate read: "YUMMY"

    The vehicle was reported stolen, because of the stolen plates. And that caused confusion with law enforcement, and even was reported incorrectly in the press.

    Oscar Meyer ended up getting the plates replaced. But the stolen report on the license was never updated. So that Wienermobile ended up being pulled over in Arizona by the Highway Patrol for being "stolen".

    Here is a link to a news story update about that incident:

    http://www.kval.com/news/national/8245117.html

    When the officer that made the stop got back to his station, his fellow patrolmen "roasted" him over stopping the Wienermobile.

    Ok, I'll be the first to say it. Do you think they are super fun and friendly with each other in the back of that rolling wiener?


    Thanks for posting, brings up childhood memories of those commercials and seeing the wienermobile on tv. The mini cooper version is full of fail.

    If you go to the Hotdoggers web pages, you will see that of the 6 two person teams, 2 are all female, with 2 female drivers, and the other 4 have 1 guy with 1 girl.

    They are all recent college grads, and most have a degree in either Journalism or Communications/Public Relations.

    So apparently a 4 year degree is required to drive the Wienermobile.

    Either that, or young college grads are unable to find decent jobs in the present economy.
