"I love to see her laugh and make her smile. So I would just beep the horn excessively and yell her name," Doell told the Daily Advertiser.
But it was a glance at a large hat in his apartment that changed his game.
He donned a sombrero and yelled, “El Papi” as they met after class, Garcia said.
So how did the Weinermobie stunt come to fruition?
Doell said he was at an area store to get a whistle for an NFL referee costume he was planning and as if by fate, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was at the same parking lot. So he asked the hotdoggers if he could borrow the vehicle. They said yes and the rest went down in prank history.
Garcia had a prank of her own up her sleeve. She got the help of a local radio station to have Doell picked up with horn blazing.
"At first I was scared," Doell told the Daily Advertiser. "I had no idea who was honking. Usually, I"m the one who's doing it. But then I was so impressed with her. That was the last thing I expected."
