Here's How to Get Free Ball Park Hot Dogs Right Now

Hot dogs are reliably good regardless of the season, weather, or your proximity to a baseball park, but there's something about summer, sunshine, and baseball that just seems to make them taste better (maybe it's all the beer?). But perhaps the best hot dogs are free hot dogs, and you can get some right now thanks to a new promotion from Ball Park. 

The hot dog brand announced that for 100 hours beginning Tuesday morning, it will give away free Ball Park Franks made with Angus Beef to anyone named Angus or Frank (get it?) and to anyone who changes their name to Angus or Frank on Twitter. 

Here are the exact instructions from Ball Park's press release:

"To participate in the Angus Frank giveaway, everyone with the name Angus or Frank in their Twitter name or handle (even if only changed for the day) can enter the 100-hour giveaway by following @BallParkBrand on Twitter and tweeting their love for Ball Park Angus Beef Franks using #BallParkAngusGiveaway. Everyone will receive a coupon for a free package of Ball Park Angus Beef Franks, just in time for their Fourth of July celebrations."

According to the fine print, the giveaway ends on June 25th at 12pm ET or when the company has given out 10,000 coupons for the free hot dogs -- whichever comes first. 

Of course, you might confuse your followers with your sudden name change, and publicly proclaiming your love for hot dogs might not align with your "personal brand," but it's probably worth it for free hot dogs. You know what to do, Angus.
