So I don’t know if this would actually be considered the world’s largest hot dog, but it’s pretty big…and it comes with fries and a shake…and did I forget to mention that it also flies? OK, so this is most definitely the world’s largest flying hot dog that’s accompanied by fries and a shake. Take that Wienermobile. This is the Giant Hot Dog and Fries at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, also known as the Phish flying hot dog.
This silly American jumbo-sized meal was original served up by the band Phish. Way back when in 1994 they began a New Years Eve Concert by declaring their hunger and soon after this feast descended upon them. The band members climbed inside (it seats four) and floated out over the audience.
Nowadays the jumbo hot dog et al. are housed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. The Rock Hall itself is filled with a plethora of silly wonders: everything from Michael Jackson’s sparkling glove to Pink Floyd’s wall. Unfortunately the museum doesn’t allow photos, so I can’t share anything from inside, but I was able to snap this pic of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hot dog from the balcony of the lobby. I mean, how can you not take a picture of a giant hot dog?
