There’s a general consensus among the global population that Oscar Mayer’s Wienermobile is cool. We have no information to back that up obviously, but come on, it’s a giant hot dog that drives. As far as epic marketing campaigns go it’s one of the best of all time, and now Oscar Mayer is upgrading.
Friends, say hello to the Wienermini, Wienerrover, Wienercycle, and yes, the Wienerdrone. It’s the all-new Wienerfleet. Your life is now complete.
The specifics are somewhat self-explanatory. The Wienermini has actually been around for a few years and is your average Mini with an orange fiberglass hot dog on the roof. The Wienerrover is presumably the radio control delivery tool for getting hot dogs to Mars, or failing that, launching off dirt jumps at the local playground while feeding kids and adults alike.
The Wienercycle is a Vespa with a hot dog sidecar that would be epic fun in pretty much any downtown environment. The video claims seating for two, but we’d exchange a human passenger for a dachshund (with a helmet of course.) And lastly there’s the Wienerdrone, which we’re fairly certain will be the source for at least a few mistaken UFO reports in the months and years to come.
Here’s a bit of bar trivia – the first Wienermobile actually hit the road in 1936 as a completely custom car from the ground up. Dodge and General Motors have been the primary foundations for the various rolling wieners through the years, with the current Wienermobile utilizing a GMC chassis and a Chevrolet 6.0-liter V8 engine.
Want to drive a Wienermobile? Oscar Mayer gets upwards of 1,200 applications each year from people looking to join the crew. Now that the fleet has expanded, it looks like there could be a few more spots to fill.
And on that note, time for a hot dog break.
