From seeing that uniquely shaped vehicle driving down the road to finding that wienie whistle from years ago, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile brings smiles all around. Although it might not fit in a traditional parking spot, the Hotdoggers who carefully navigate it around the U.S. appreciate how vehicle is more than just a home on wheels. With the most recent announcement, Wienermobile pop culture moments always get people talking.

Over the years, the Wienermobile has captured the moment in curious ways. While the shape and image may not have changed tremendously since the first vehicle arriving at the 1936 World’s Fair, the brand appreciates that it needs to be more to fans. Granted it can be fun snapping a picture in front of the gigantic hot dog. Today’s moments need to be more than just a photo and a wienie whistle.

This year, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is ready to make it permanent with a special someone. Although no one is marrying the vehicle, it can be the backdrop to that till death do us part moment with the Wienermobile of Love limited time Las Vegas wedding chapel.

According to Ed Roland, Sr. Manager Brand Communications for Oscar Mayer at The Kraft Heinz Company, “From proposals and surprise meat-ups down the aisle to playing matchmaker to some of our own Hotdoggers, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has held a special place in fans’ hearts – so much so, we receive thousands of requests each and every year to be part of couples’ big days. Now, as more people seek stress-free ceremonies with their partners, our Hotdoggers are thrilled to reignite the joy of this special day and give them a once-in-a-lifetime experience: a wedding through a pair of meat-colored glasses.”

The Wienermobile of Love will be located at Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas on April 15 and 16. Hotdoggers will host and perform the all-expenses paid ceremonies.

Looking back at previous promotions, the Wienermobile pop culture moments have been many. It has been part of proposals. This newest promotion makes that all important love declaration last a little longer.

Also, the brand has been an AirBnB. Too bad the first night of that meat lovers ever after does not come with a stay in the Oscar Mayer filled world.

The idea of creating Wienermobile pop culture moments keeps the brand relevant. While it does not have to be as permanent as a tattoo, evolving the brand to ensure it is still part of the conversation is vital. Some people might not be able to sing that iconic jingle, but many people enjoy that classic hot dog any time of year.
