I saw this interesting vehicle when I was downtown. I’m not sure if its arrival is connected to SXSW, but I thought it was worth a “capture”. It’s the Wienermobile used to promote Oscar Mayer products. For those around the world that aren’t familiar, it’s supposed to look like a hot dog, a sausage on a bun.
A little Wikipedia research reveals that there’s been eleven versions of this vehicle, starting back in 1936. This one appears to be from 2004. There wasn’t anybody around to ask but it would’ve been fun to look inside.
You can also see the rising Austin skyline as backdrop. This parking lot is not going to be around much longer. I think I saw plans for another skyscraper to be built here soon.
