Unlike the famous jingle, you can’t be one — but now you can be in one.
“Relish a stay in the real Oscar Mayer Wienermobile,” reads an Airbnb ad for stays in the iconic vehicle. “For one night only, you can have the opportunity to eat hot dogs, dream of hot dogs, and yes, live in a hot dog,” the listing continues, clarifying that, “no, you’re not having hunger-induced visions — this is real!”
The company announced the frank hotel on Wednesday, which was National Hot Dog Day.
The extremely limited opportunity to sleep in the 27-foot vehicle will cost guests $136 and is available only on August 1, 2 and 3 — the same dates as Chicago music festival Lollapalooza. The listing will go live on July 24, NBC Chicago reports, and slots are expected to fill up fast.
The camper has no bathroom, kitchen, heating or Wi-Fi and will be parked during its duration as a hotel. It has been outfitted with a sofa bed for the occasion, and there will be a temporary bathroom near the entrance, as well as a “hot dog picnic zone.” Guests can also help themselves to a mini-fridge full of hot dogs and fixings and will be gifted an Oscar Mayer roller grill and commemorative goodie bag after their stay.
Up to two guests a night can stay in the wheeled wiener.
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was created in 1936, when Carl Mayer’s uncle Oscar proposed driving a giant hot dog through the streets of Chicago, hawking hot dogs.
Fans who don’t get to stay in the Wienermobile in August could consider applying to drive it — although becoming a Wienermobile driver is highly competitive.
Other creative Airbnb rentals over the years have included a van in Soho, a giant Idaho potato prop and a nuclear missile silo.
