These spaghetti wieners might not look so appealing to pasta or hot dog purists, but it does make a funny picture!  Personally, I wonder how much time and trouble it took to string the spaghetti through these wieners.

It would be interesting to see how this would do being advertised commercially.

Implications - Products like this are definitely out of the ordinary, but that is definitely something that works in their favor in a society that is increasingly focused on novelty and experimentation. In the same way that KFC's "Double Down" became an overnight sensation due to the sheer incredulity of its concept and contents, companies can learn a lot from products like this when it comes to generating bizarre buzz.
