People who drive the Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles are called Hotdoggers and only college seniors who are about to graduate are eligible to be Hotdoggers.

Wienermobile

There are six Wienermobiles operating throughout the United States.

The driver of a Weinermobile is called The Hotdogger. The Hotdogger job is to “meat” and greet people around the country. The Hotdogger’s duties include “sharing photos and videos on social media, answering questions about the brand and the vehicle (the most frequently asked question is if there’s a bathroom in the back, to which they respond, “No, it’s not a Weenie-bago”), and distributing swag”.

    I’ve never seen a male “hotdogger”. One pulled in to gas up off the highway and all female. My female cousin was also one decades ago. Wondering why so vague about that detail on Wikipedia, or maybe times have changed?

    Omg one of those guys ran the Wienermobile into a store I was at. He was wearing a hot dog outfit and still tried to play it off like somebody else did it!

    “On July 17, 2009, a Wienermobile on a cul-de-sac in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, was attempting to turn around in a residential driveway. The driver accidentally accelerated forward while thinking the vehicle was in reverse, which lodged the Wienermobile under a house and destroyed its deck.”

    There’s a pun to be made here, I can feel it

    We had one of the Wienermobiles visit our drive-in theatre this summer. The two crewmembers driving went by “Tommy Salami”, and “All American Ashley”. We got to take a quick tour inside the weiner, snagged a cool wieney whistle, and got our pictures taken.
    Its actually very nice inside.

    They had arranged their visit with us several days ahead of time, so we promoted it on social media. Had folks drive 30-40 miles just to see it. Most of the older folks loved it. The teenagers were going “WTF is that?”

    Large percentage are female marketing and communications majors. The 3 that I have met were from Midwest colleges and knew their products well. They also handled the big sausage like pro. That thing is awkward.

    I was a Hotdogger one summer. Tons of bun action! Don’t worry, I always wore a condiment

    As a European, this sentence makes no sense and I am terrified.

    Feel like that’s more of a job for the freshmen

    I always thought hotdogging was a completely different thing.

    Hot Dogger means something different in the UK. It’s also an oxymoron.

    I applied for this, but mostly so I could use it as the answer on my grad school app question: “What are your plans next year if not this graduate program?”

    That’s so not fair. I’m going to be 50 next year. I never made it to senior year, but I’m almost a senior. Damn weiners.
