Oscar Mayer Wienermobile visits Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile made a stop in Columbus today, March 18.

"Hotdoggers" Jennie Shen and Spencer Smud stopped outside the News Leader 9's studio to give us an up-close look at the fleet.

"So we're actually in the area just going around and we'll be doing some retail events. We'll be doing some Wal-Mart's in the area. I mean, the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile has been around since 1936. Oscar Mayer's nephew was the one that kind of originated the idea and since then we've been going around the country spreading miles of smiles," says Smud.

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will be in Columbus until March 22.

People will have the opportunity to virtually drive the Wienermobile in a new first-of-its kind app.
