The Wienermobile gets a new name and I’m not sure how to feel …

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is an iconic part of American culture. It’s been around for nearly 100 years, and always brings a smile to people’s faces. Recently, however, Oscar Mayer announced that they are changing the name of the Wienermobile to the Frankmobile. I know, I know, it’s a little weird. But there’s a reason for it.

Oscar Mayer is rolling out a new hot dog recipe this summer. And they wanted to give the Frankmobile a new name to match the new hot dogs. They say it’s to “pay homage” to the new recipe.

My bologna has a first name. It’s O-S-C-A-R, not F-R-A-N-K

But we can’t help but wonder, what does this mean for the future of the Wienermobile? Will it still be the same iconic vehicle that we all know and love? Can you imagine seeing the big bunned hot dog rolling down the road and yelling, “Look! It’s the Frankmobile!” Won’t it always be the Wienermobile?

When can I see the new “Frankmobile?”

And if you have something cool coming up … like your Uncle Frank’s birthday party … you can invite the icon to join HERE.

In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy the Frankmobile for what it is. It’s a fun, unique, and memorable way to celebrate Oscar Mayer hot dogs.

So next time you see the Frankmobile, be sure to give it a wave and a smile. It’s a part of American history, and it’s a reminder that even the smallest things can bring a big smile to your face.

Love you, love your show!
