Wienermobile rolls into Tampa Bay for some bun fun

Look out Tampa Bay, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is hitting our streets. We know you wish you were an Oscar Mayer wiener, but two soon-to-be college graduates, Molly Segall and Steve Johnson, were chosen as Oscar Mayer Hotdoggers to drive the iconic Wienermobile all across the region, stopping at communities along the way. "We hope to get a chance to meat you while in Tampa and even give a few lucky dogs a Wienermobile ride," they said in a release.
