Video: An Ode to the (Bacon-Wrapped) Hot Dog Lady
The woman who grills the official hot dog of Los Angeles has her own video tribute: Hot Dog Lady. The comedy group that put together the video We're Still Friends writes:
She feeds us when we’re famished, helps hold off that hangover, and throws in chips and a drink for only a dollar fifty extra. It’s high time she got some love.
It's a pretty silly video that features a dude smoking a joint in a D.A.R.E. shirt, and one patron violating the sacred fellowship of drunks to get to the front of the line. Don't worry, bro, hot dog lady always has a dog for you fresh off the grill!
