Skip to comments.Spirit Airlines Makes Carlos Danger Its Promo Poster Boy: The Weiner Rises Again
Posted on 07/25/2013 4:14:01 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows
If you dont know what New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is, you might just think Spirit Airlines new promo has something to do with a mysterious hot dog that is coming back from wherever it is texting hot dogs go. The Weiner Rises Again! trumpets Spirit in its new promo, featuring a masked frank holding a cell phone. See, because its the second time that Weiner has admitted to sending saucy messages to women. And this go-around, he took on the personality of one Carlos Danger.
Weiner stepped down from Congress in 2011 in the aftermath of sending photos of his, ahem, hot dog to women, and admitted this week that he kept sending that kind of message even after hed resigned. He used the alter ego of Carlos Danger because ostensibly that is the most smoldering, lover of sexytimes pseudonym that he could come up with. And it just so happens its perfect for an airline promo!
Spirit will offer $24 off flights to Mexico if travelers book a vacation package to Los Cabos or Cancun by Friday night. No word on whether or not you must whisper, I am Carlos Danger at the ticket counter when you arrive.
Were spreading the word of vacation package savings, said Misty Pinson, a Spirit Airlines spokeswoman. Whats not to love about low fares and great deals?
Spirit is a fan of these kinds of promotions: Back when American Airlines had seats that kept coming loose, the airline poked fun at its competitor with a 7.57% discount, saying We let low fares loose, not seats!
All of the above, in addition to the long-running joke of its multitude of fees. Hilarious, guys.

Anthony Weiner aka Carlos Danger has certainly thrust himself into the public consciousness. He has risen to the occasion and will probably have his ups and downs in the polls. At any rate I’m sure he is having a ball while poking around looking for votes.
Notice what kind of “hat” Carlos is wearing.
His moment has come and gone. He’s going down.
He practices safe sext.
I don’t think it’s a hat, just some creamy mayonnaise.
You think so? I thought he brought things to a head. However, now that I think about it you may be right; his campaign has climaxed and he has nothing left to do but go down.
Yes, the former New York Representative is vulgar.
Kudos to Spirit Airlines.
No doubt and so is Spirit Airlines with that image
So a sitting congressman was knowingly having an innocent citizen investigated by the FBI for a federal crime.
That's what was so beautiful about how Andrew hijacked Weiner's press conference.
FWIW, FoxNews allowing endless ad nauseum interviews with The Donald...telling us what NYC thinks of The Weiner campaign. Oi! I can't wait. :(
I don’t know why Republicans are up in arms about Weiner’s running. Let him run and pull ahead in the primary. Anybody the GOP nominates would be good at beating Weiner.
This thread needs the Weiner-Holder image.
