Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Visits Cheyenne and Laramie [PHOTOS]
Did you catch the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile on it’s visit to Wyoming last weekend?
The RelshMe Wienermobile stopped at the Grand Avenue Walmart in Laramie on Friday, October 7, and made an appearance at the Cheyenne Walmart on Dell Range Saturday, October 8.
It made our day when we saw the Wienermobile parked in the Fairfield Inn lot on a snowy Saturday. It’s one of the most unique vehicles on the road and guaranteed to make you smile as it travels on it’s Good Mood Mission.
There are several Wienermobiles that travel to appearances all across the country driven by Hotdoggers who have all had special training. Sometimes they’ll be passing out Wienerwhistles.
The Wienermobile was created in 1936 by Oscar Mayer’s nephew Carl Mayer. The models have evolved over the years, the current version is 27 feet long and 11 feet high. There are currently eight active Wienermobiles, six full-sized ones along with a Mini and a food-truck version.
The Hotdogger drivers must be a U.S. citizen and a college senior about to graduate and the position is only held for one year. Each year, Kraft receives about 2000 applications and 30 candidates are chosen for interviews at the Oscar Mayer headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin.
There are currently about 300 former Hotdoggers.
When you spot the Wienermobile, it’s hard not to break into a chorus of “Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener, that is what I really want to be. ‘Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener, everyone would be in love with me.”
