Spirit Airlines wasted little time in capitalizing on New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s — aka Carlos Danger — revelations Tuesday that he continued sending tawdry photos to a 22-year-old woman after resigning from Congress.
The airline company unveiled a new marketing campaign called “The Weiner Rises Again” starring Carlos Danger, a faux movie trailer promoting their cheap flights to Mexico.
“Critics are raving about our latest production “The Weiner Rises Again,” but they are also raving about our latest deal to Mexico!” the webpage states.
The advertisement, featured on the website’s homepage, displays a hot dog, cell phone in hand, donning a white cap and includes reviews from fake critics.
“Carlos Danger is nuts,” one review reads.
Spirit’s new ad campaign comes less than a day after the gossip website, TheDirty.com, published quotes from a woman saying she swapped risqué photos with the former U.S. congressman, who acted under the pseudonym Carlos Danger.
Weiner resigned from the House of Representatives in 2011 after he accidentally tweeted lewd photos of himself and admitted to sending pictures of his genitals to women.
The former congressman announced he would be making a run for New York City mayor against City Councilor Christine Quinn in May and has been leading in the polls.
Spirit Airlines’ new ad campaign isn’t the first time the company has used the mayoral-hopeful’s scandal to sell plane tickets. In 2011, Spirit unveiled “The Weiner Sale,” with “fares too hard to resist.”
