The hardchuckling staff has no idea who put these two ads together in yesterday’s New York Times Summer Movies section, but we thoroughly approve.
Just to be clear: Weiner is a documentary about “disgraced New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign and the landscape of today’s political landscape.” Whatever the hell that means.
Wiener-Dog, on the other hand, “[c]hronicles the life of a dog as it travels around the country, spreading comfort and joy.” So no real spot for the soi-disant Carlos Danger there, right?
Wait! Maybe there is a connection.
From the New York Post’s Page Six two months ago:
Carlos Danger wants to sell you a hot dog
The disgraced former congressman responded to Burger King’s announcement Wednesday that rapper Snoop Dogg would be their spokesperson for the forthcoming launch of grilled hot dogs at the venerable fast food joint.
“OK, I gotta admit Snoop is a brilliant pick for this,” he tweeted. “But I can think of one guy woulda been better.”
