PRODUCT

The hot dog, which people think is too "basic" for their lunch of choice.

INSIGHT

Basic isn't a bad thing when all you've ever needed is the hot dog and the bun for an 
ever-tasty, always-consistent quality classic.

While everything else is updating, renovating or modernizing, the hot dog hasn't had to.

That's because it got it right from the start. It's simply timeless.

A spin on the classic hot dog cart, these traveling food trucks with interactive photo areas will increase social media engagement

NARRATOR: “Your grandma used to say, ‘don’t fix what isn’t broken.’ And she was absolutely right. While some things are changed every few weeks... I’m talking to you, never-ending software updates... some things don’t need to change because they got it right the first time.

SINGLE SHOT INSIDE OF A SHOPPING CART. THE WHEELS MOVING AS BUNS, HOT DOGS, AND MUSTARD ARE TOSSED INTO THE CART ONE BY ONE.

 

NARRATOR: “People love to make innovation the hero behind history's greatest achievements. But do you think that Henry Ford made the Model T for the glory? Nah, it was because he was tired of chafing every time he rode his horse. “Innovation” really just means someone didn’t get things right the first time.

NARRATOR: “We did, though. That’s why we haven’t had to change. Just the hot dog inside the bun creates a satisfying and simple meal you’ve always known and loved. Maybe throw in some mustard if you’re feeling saucy. It’s beca–"

A BOTTLE OF VODKA IS PLACED INSIDE THE

NARRATOR: ““Wait, vodka? That’s... not part of

CAMERA ZOOMS OUT AND BETTY WHITE IS SEEN PUSHING THE SHOPPING CART.

BETTY WHITE: “Part of the commercial? What do you mean? I’m just grocery shopping.”
 

NARRATOR VOICE OVER: “You know what, let's...
just use this."
