It's No Weiner, But It'll Have To Do

 I have always wanted to see the actual Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. But I have resigned myself to knowing I likely never will. We passed this Red Bull car, so it will have to do instead.


I read that their slogan "Red Bull Gives You Wings", is one of the most popular and memorable advertising campaigns in the world. Funny, I have never heard of it!

Red Bull mainly contains carbonation, caffeine, and B vitamins. I'd rather have a hot dog.

Not a fan of any of those energy drinks. My son was drinking red bull all the time. Not sure is he still does or not.
I'll take a hot dog over red bull too.

I'm not an energy drink person either.
I've seen the weinermobile both on display and driving. It's fun!

Willow said...

I don't drink Red Bull or any other bottled/canned drink. Too Much Sugar!
No hot dogs for me either.
But I love fun cars.

I have not seen the weiner or the red bull truck, but I did see a really cool Google Maps car taking street maps. that was cool. I don't drink energy drinks, never did, and now no carbonated drinks at all. rare if i do. i love hot dogs and day before yesterday ate TWO and paid the price the next day

Too much caffeine makes my heart race which is scary so no energy drinks for me!

I've seen neither the weinermobile or the Red Bull car, so you're ahead of me.

Haaahhaa I have never had a Red Bull either and I think I can say with complete certainty that I never will. But hot dogs? YESSSS! I think I have seen an Oscar Meyer Wienermobile. But I'm not sure! Maybe I've only seen a picture ... hahaha xoxo

Well....this is quite different. We do have a Weinermobile in our area. If I see it again, I will be sure and grab a photo. funny thing. I mentioned Red Bull drink in my post today. great minds!

I wasn't aware that many other companies besides Oscar Mayer had trucks to advertise their products. As you and others have said, I would much prefer the wiener. After reading this post, the jingle was an ear worm for awhile๐Ÿ˜€

I have never seen the Red Bull truck before but the Weiner mobile..many times.
Never going to drink a Red Bull. What it can do to ones heart is scary.
Hot Dogs Yes...yummy.. we have them often for a fast dinner. Of course they are the best roasted over an open fire..Oh that fragrance..drool..

You see the most interesting sights Ginny. I've never tried an energy drink.

I've been afraid to try the energy drinks. A friend did and she got so wired, she got sick. I can do coffee and that's my morning fix. If I drink coffee after 12 noon, I cannot sleep.

I don't drink those kinds of drinks either.
