Oscar Mayer Adds a Real Life, 150 MPH Jetpack to the Wienerfleet

August 11, 2019

The Oscar
Mayer Wienermobile? So last century. The Oscar Mayer Wienerdrone? Totally 2017. This summer, the tubed-meat giant is once
again taking to the skies, introducing the newest addition to its iconic fleet of hot
dog-shaped vehicles: a jetpack (Wienerjet?) with an intrepid pilot named Super Hotdogger.So
yes, this is the second aerial vehicle in the Wienerfleet, with the hot dog-shaped Wienerdrone
capable of air-dropping hot dogs one at a time. But like a heavy bomber of sorts, Super Hotdogger
can carry multiple dogs to people with substandard picnics in holsters that sort of look like
Beats Pill speakers. The actual jetpack is a real-life, fully-functional
unit built by a company called Jetpack Aviation with a real dude flying it. Oscar Mayer claims it has a maximum altitude
of 15,000 feet and a top speed of 150 mph. Super Hotdogger’s uniform is appropriately
ridiculous with lots of orange and yellow and what appears to be a motorcycle helmet. Even the jetpack itself is in Oscar Mayer
livery.Super Hotdogger’s sidekicks are the Hotdoggers, the team of drivers who pilot
the company’s Wienermobiles around the country. We’re guessing they’ll be playing a fair amount
of catch-up: the heavy Wienermobile is just a hair slower than 150 mph.
