Inspired by science instructor Bruce Yeany, YouTuber NightHawkInLight wanted to see if he could cook a hot dog while it floated in the air. NightHawk improved on Yeany’s compressed air levitation, using a nichrome and copper coil to heat his wiener instead of a blowtorch.
Awesome Hot Dogs
Erik Vernieuwe and Kris De Smedt of BURP love to play with their food. They especially enjoy a good wiener. Their Instagram feed is loaded with hilarious scenes featuring hot dogs, sausages, and pickles posed as characters and scenes from pop culture. Our favorite photo is of the Grady twins from Kubrick’s The Shining.
When the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile turned up in Memphis, Tennessee, members of Opera Memphis decided to pay tribute to the iconic hot dog on wheels by singing a grand operatic rendition of the brand’s familiar jingle. That’s tenor Dane Suarez and baritone Jake Stamatis, conducted by Michael Sakir.
