Needless to say, a dude from Florida came up with this stroke (pause) of marketing genius: A brand of hot dogs called Carlos Danger beef wieners.
The name references the pseudonym that NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Wiener used to talk dirty on the Internets. ABC News has the report:
Richards says of this shamelessness: “This is something that’s too good of an opportunity to pass up. It’s a great American dream to make money off a stupid political gaffe.” There’s a website for the wieners, a social-media campaign in which consumers are asked to share photos with their Danger wieners, and the option to hire “Weiner girls” to host nightclub and tailgate parties
So…when are the Sydney (Fruit) Leathers dropping?
