I am not immune to marketing, and as such, I feel comfortable admitting that I love the Oscar Mayer Wienerdrone.
This silly quadcopter is one of four additions to what the company dubs “the Wienerfleet.” Other Wienerfleet members include a custom Mini Cooper called the Wienermini; a remote-operated vehicle called the Wienerrover; an electric scooter called the Wienercycle; and, of course, the original Wienermobile.
Oscar Mayer unveiled the Wienerdrone in a very sleek, very goofy video shared Monday.
I mean, look at this delightfully dumb thing dropping a hot dog on the ground:
Is the Wienerdrone an extremely silly marketing gimmick with few real world applications beyond dropping food from great heights? Yes. Are drones the worst? Yes.
All this aside, is the Wienerdrone, at its core, just a delightful flying hot dog? Yes. I love it. Send it to my next barbecue.
