‘It’s too cold!’ Mr Hot Dog says no school in South Dakota

PARKER, South Dakota (AP) – A South Dakota school district is using a talking hot dog to announce closures due to the extreme cold.

In a video posted to the Parker School District’s Facebook page, Mr Hot Dog said, “I’m a hot dog! I need some heat! I’m not a cold dog!… You cannot have school! It’s too cold outside.”

Mr Hot Dog – complete with eyes, teeth, a bun and mustard – said he spoke with Superintendent Donavan DeBoer and that school will be closed on Wednesday. Mr Hot Dog suggested students can instead watch Netflix or bake a cake, but “No Fortnite!”

DeBoer told the Argus Leader that he created the video using Snapchat.
