Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner might be in hot water with his wife after his most recent sexting fiasco, but some travelers heading to Mexico this fall could actually benefit from his latest social-media debacle.
Spirit Airlines took advantage of the New York City mayoral candidate’s rising scandal with “The Weiner Rises Again” special on its website. Shortly after Weiner’s press conference, a mustachioed hot dog named Carlos Danger appeared on the airline’s website, offering $24 off flights to Cancun or Los Cabos.
This isn’t the first time Spirit has won some free publicity on the back of a Weiner bone-headed blunder. In 2011, the airline touted their fares as “too hard to resist” after news of his original sexting scandal broke. Spirit has also taken advantage of scandals involving Tiger Woods, Charlie Sheen, Arnold Schwarzenneger and former Chicago mayor Rod Blagojevich.
If you want to take advantage of Spirit’s latest fare sale, flights must be booked by the end of the day, Friday, July 26. If you’re hoping to get a cheap flight to Minnesota, hope someone discovers nude selfies of Garrison Keillor soon.
