The Wienermobile is a marvel of American motoring, with 72 years in service and a design more memorable than any other. At 27 feet in length, the legendary frankfurter is also one of the bigger vehicles on the road, but that's all changed with the introduction of the MINI Cooper Wienermobile. At only 15 feet in length, the diminutive mystery meat machine is a more compact tribute to one of America's favorite foods, and its down-sized footprint is better for the environment, too. Oscar Mayer unveiled the Mini Wienermobile as part of a promotion celebrating the company's 125 years in business, though the company didn't say whether the MINI Cooper would remain in the Wienermobile fleet.

While it wouldn't be right for the MNI Cooper to replace the original Wienermobile altogether as the official transportation for the world's biggest hot dog, we think it's certainly capable enough to join the fleet, especially after we learned how dangerous the original can be on icy roads. Follow the jump to view some funny video of Super Bowl champion Michael Strahan checkin' out the MINI Wienermobile. He digs them chrome rims something fierce.

      Yikes ... the "American" original using a Mini Cooper? It would be more fitting if it were a 'brat.' (bratwurst)

      I feel bad for the guy that has to pull up next to the original wienermobile in this thing...

      Heh... the PG nature of Autoblog leaves a lot of untapped potential in this post.

      I agree with him about the attention getting of a weinermobile. I can see a classic Ferarri 275 GTB-4 in a parking lot and I'll be the only one oggling it. When the weinermobile came to town, though, There was a crowd around it, aching to get a glimpse inside, etc. It kinda brings a tear to my eye. ;_;

      is this the white man's wiener mobile? Smaller and it originally comes from england?

      I kid, I kid.

        Not all white men come from England.
        (I won't bother with the first part, it was obviously a joke...)

      Haha, you'll get the attention, but I'm not sure the chick magnet works properly in this mobile.

      Clearly the driver is very secure in his masculinity. Nothing to prove here.
