The Wienermobile refers to a fleet of motor vehicles shaped like a hot dog on a bun used to promote and advertise Oscar Mayer products in the United States. The first Wienermobile was created in 1936 by Oscar Mayer’s nephew, Carl G. Mayer, in 1936.
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has evolved from Carl Mayer’s original 1936 vehicle to the vehicles seen on the road today. Today’s Wienermobile is a 27-foot-long hot dog on wheels. In fact, there are six traveling across the U.S. at any given time, and drivers of the famous vehicle are known as Hotdoggers.
