As Hotdoggers, we often hear stories that begin with “I remember when…”, and these stories are always fun to hear because each person has a unique experience when they first see the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile vehicle. Some people laugh, some people smile, but most importantly, everyone is happy when they see the big dog cruising around town.
I met Paul at one of our events in bunderful Billings, Montana. Everyone in Montana is so nice to us and Paul was no exception. It was his first time seeing IWSHIWR (one of six Wienermobile vehicles on the road today), and he said that he was the first in his entire family to see it! Paul used the word “stunning” to describe the bright colors and sheer size of the 27-foot-long hot dog. He said that it is truly a piece of Americana, given that it has been cruising the mustard striped roads of America since 1936.
Paul used to live near the headquarters of Oscar Mayer on the east side of beautiful Madison, WI. Before that, he attended high school in Geneva, Switzerland and eventually found himself living in Billings, MT where he has been for the past 20 years. Paul chaperoned a high school field trip to Brittany, located in the northwestern region of France, where his students translated the famous “Oh I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener…” jingle into French! Check out his story!
