The post featuring the fourth-grader’s school ID has been shared more than 30,000 times and racked up some 14,000 reactions and comments.

The 9-year-old virtual hot dog boy has generated enough press to get a visit from the big dog.

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is stopping by Biddeford on Monday to give Jake a ride.

Come see us, and the weeniermobile today! This beauty will be picking up my son, the viral hotdog boy, from the Cabellas plaza in Scarborough, and leaving at 5pm on its way to Biddeford.
