you spin me right round dodge hiring a chief donut maker

Pop quiz, hotshot: What job combines a Challenger Hellcat, wrestling champ Bill Goldberg, and a $150,000 paycheck? If you answered with something along the lines of Vince McMahon’s assistant or slightly-above-board import/export professional, we totally understand.

In reality, that’s the job description for Chief Donut Maker at Dodge. Yep – you read that correctly.

According to the company, this PR stunt will see a Chief Donut Maker become an ambassador for the Dodge brand, wheeling to auto events around the country in a Hellcat. Despite the pay, this isn’t even a full-time gig; Dodge describes it as a side hustle in which you don’t have to quit your day job.

Applications kick off today and run until the end of February. If you’re bent on throwing your hat in the ring, go ahead and film a short sub-two-minute clip demonstrating why you’re a perfect gearhead for the job. Goldberg and his team of Dodge cohorts will select 10 finalists from the lot, a group who will then be tossed into the deep end of the competition, which includes racing Dodge hotshoes on a closed track among other challenges.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said they’re looking for a car nut who embodies the “crazy can-do America Muscle spirit and carry the torch of the single most engaged group of enthusiasts the automotive industry has to offer,” before going on to crow that the Challenger was the number one muscle car in the country last year. This, of course, references the fact in which the Challenger bested the Mustang in total sales while also crushing the Camaro like beetles under its feet. There is a 100 percent chance you will be seeing this boast throughout the entirety of 2022, by the way.

Despite the sky-high salary for what’s essentially a part-time job, this is a good deal for Dodge. Chances are everything will be filmed and packaged for either Netflix or YouTube, which will provide promotion ad nauseam until the end of time (or at least until Dodge begins rolling out its EV lineup in 2024). Specifically, the series of eliminations will be aired in a reality-like show with the final episode revealing Dodge’s new Chief Donut Maker sometime before the summer rolls around.

    But will Dodge's electric muscle cars still be the go-to for driving into crowds?

      That would be the Mustang. Especially after Cars and Coffee.

    Goldberg there is rocking a Fratzog logo shirt, so it looks like Dodge is easing this back into being its logo again.

  • Tassos BTW I thought this silly thing was always called the "Wienermobile".
  • Tassos I have a first cousin with same first and last name as my own, 17 years my junior even tho he is the son of my father's older brother, who has a summer home in the same country I do, and has bought a local A3 5-door hatch kinds thing, quite old by now.Last year he told me the thing broke down and he had to do major major repairs, replace the whole engine and other stuff, and had to rent a car for two weeks in a touristy location, and amazingly he paid more for the rental ( Euro1,500, or $1,650-$1,700) than for all the repairs, which of course were not done at the dealer (I doubt there was a dealer there anyway)
  • Tassos VW's EV program losses have already been horrific, and with (guess, Caveman!) the Berlin-Brandenburg Gigafactory growing by leaps and bounds, the future was already quite grim for VW and the VW Group.THis shutdown will not be so temporary.The German Government may have to reach in its deep pockets, no matter how much it hates to spend $, and bail it out."too big to fail"?
  • Billccm I had a 1980 TC3 Horizon and that car was as reliable as the sun. Underappreciated for sure.
  • Inside Looking Out I did not notice, did they mention climate change? How they are going to fight climate change, racism and gender discrimination. I mean collective Big 3.
