Canadians Paid A Ridiculous Amount Of Money For Hot Dog Water At A Vancouver Festival

It was the newest food attraction at the Car Free Day Festival

Hot dogs are a classic summer food and are found everywhere from backyard BBQs to street vendors and festivals. But that's not quite what was being served up at a Vancouver festival. 

In an interesting take on the food, one booth at the Car Free Day Festival was serving up unfiltered hot dog water and the price is insane.

The appropriately named Hot Dog Water booth was selling sleek glass bottles of the water with a hot dog in them for a whopping $38. The craziest part is that they were promoting the drink as being super healthy for people. 

According to a sign at the booth, the hot dog water is keto friendly and somehow the drink will help people lose weight, increase brain function, and look and feel younger.

What is crazy is that people were actually buying into it. The booth had apparently gone through gallons of the drink. People were actually spending almost $40 to drink literal hot dog water. 

There was a catch to all this though. The owner of the booth is actually an artist and did the whole hot dog water stunt to make a statement about false advertising and consumer awareness when it comes to how so many foods and products are marketed as healthy and with all these benefits to be.
