It may not be the most aerodynamically sleek vehicle in the vicintiy of Hanscom Air Force Friday, but the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is likely to attract some notice when it does a scheduled star turn at a nearby Wal-Mart Supercenter.
A rolling monument to lunch meats, the Wienermobile is a bit like a shark --- it never stops moving.
The Oscar Mayer itinerary had the Wienermobile at a Worcester Wal-mart on Thursday, and plans call for it to be at a Wal-Mart in Walpole on Sunday.
(Actually, there are six vehicles in the Wienermobile fleet. Piloted by tag-teams of college students called Hotdoggers, the Wienermobiles rove the country as they promote Oscar Mayer’s cold cuts, bacon, hot dogs, and lunch combos.)
Some may think of Oscar Mayer as old school, but hep to social media, the brand now has a Wienermobile blog. One blog headline: “A Festival of Beef Brings the Wienermobile to Northern Wisconsin.”
