This drone will deliver hot dogs to you

The Wienermobile may be one of a kind, but it's far from alone. Over the years, Oscar Mayer's iterated on its famous hot dog-shaped car, creating an entire series of vehicles that'd make Bruce Wayne envious. And it's known as - wait for it - the WienerFleet.

This summer, the hot dog company hit the streets with two new additions: The Wiener Cycle and Wiener Drone.

The Wiener Cycle's essentially a three-wheeled moped with a hot dog-warming sidecar. It's designed to squeeze through narrow side roads and other congested city areas too cramped to fit the full-blown Wienermobile, delivering dogs to cookout-deprived city dwellers.

But the real head-turner - and, arguably, head-scratcher - is the WienerDrone. With the buzz of a gnat on steroids, the drone whizzes through the air, delivering a single hot dog to those who need it most: starving sunbathers and festival-goers who just can't deal with their local food stands' meandering lines and ratcheted-up price tags ($6 for a bottle of water - is it made of angel tears?!).

It may seem outlandish, and sure, it's a marketing ploy, but it kind of makes sense. Now Oscar Mayer can boldly go to beaches and crowded outdoor music fests without having to haul a cooler.

The cycle and the drone join two existing vehicles - the Wiener Mini, a sleek Mini Cooper deserving of a cameo in The Italian Job; and the WienerRover, an ATV that can take on any terrain (even the most rugged camping trips), flying up to 20 mph while toting up to eight hot dogs.

All that's missing is a WienerSubmarine and a WienerSpaceship, and Oscar Mayer can reach you pretty much anywhere, at any time. Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.
