Uni Hot Dog Grips.. more vintage next level packaging

Recommended Posts

Last month we considered the ODI Mushroom Nuggets grips. Today, we consider the UNI Hotdog grips.

 

The amount of time and effort and expense invested in the packaging here is pretty impressive.

 

 

It's packaged like a hot dog, including a little condiment cup and knife to squeeze the tube of grip adhesive into, and then spread it on.

 

Wow.

 

 

Gimmicky? You bet. But also a remarkable time for BMX and a remarkable marketing effort, that entails so much more than a piece of cardboard with the grips bound to it like you see now days.

Not many companies take the time, effort and money to do this type of packaging anymore. And that's a shame. All of the sudden I have a craving to go to Der Wienerschitzel.
