Fictional Product Mobiles

Not all product mobiles actually have the benefit of reality. A few exist solely in the world of TV and movies. Here are a few examples:
Reminiscent of the Meow Mix Mobile, the Shaggin' Wagon carried Harry & Loyd from Rhode Island to Aspen (well, it almost got them there) in the movie Dumb & Dumber. It proudly advertised the ill fated "Mutt Cutts" mobile pet grooming service.
On the TV series King of the Hill, the Bugabago served as both mobile advertisement and effective killing machine in the service of Dale Gribble. "Dales Dead-Bug" pest control service took it's marketing quite literally.

A direct to DVD comedy that you and I have never heard of called "Wieners" featured a custom Wiener Wagon sporting the face of SNL regular Keenan Thompson and a giant hot dog on the roof. It was made by Prototype Source, the makers of the real Wienermobile.
 There may be more examples on the big and small screen so we'll all have to keep our eyes peeled.
