Introducing new Carlos Danger brand Weiner
When news of Carlos Danger's sexploits first burst forth on the scene, the Internet rubbed its hands in glee, ready to generate any number of jokes and memes about Anthony Weiner's cartoon-like alter ego.
The latest to give the New York mayor hopeful a good grilling, so to speak, is Randall Richards, marketing executive and brainparent of the "extra large" Carlos Danger Weiner that "rises to any occasion."
"There's a lot of excitement about it and we think they're going to fly off the shelves," says Richards. "I mean how many times do you introduce a new product that has this much press going for it?"
Indeed, since the Website went live on Friday, Richards has received close to 5,000 pre-orders of the well-girthed Danger Weiner, which contains a full quarter pound of beef and weighs twice the size of a regular hotdog.
Pricing starts at just $4, but Richards says he's sold many more of the $80, "Super Tailgater Packs;" which comes with 40 Weiners and a side order of adhesive mustaches and beer koozies.
