True story: I've never eaten at Wienerschnitzel before, but I consider myself a fan. You can only imagine all the PR crap I receive from all matters of freaks, but the world's largest hot dog chain has consistently put out some of the better PR stunts around (I still have the mini-children's book they released a couple of years ago, along with a publicity shot of their mascot–FUNNY!)
But the company–founded 50 years ago by John Galardi, who learned everything he knew from Glen Bell of Taco Bell fame–has outdone itself this time with its latest promotion: a gold-
plated colored plastic version of their mascot, to use as an antennae topper. Okay, so it's fake gold, but still!
It can be yours starting Monday if you purchase a meal combo deal, or buy one for 99 cents at all Wienerschnitzel locations. But hurry–the supplies are limited, and first come first serve.
Even though the Wienerschnitzel people sent me one over the mail, I want more of these things–yeah, I'm a nerd like that. Expect a review of my first-ever Wierneschnitzel experience soon…
