A word of advice to parents:
NEVER challenge your kid unless you want to be severely outdone.
Craig Arsenault and his wife, Kari, of Scarborough, Maine, decided to challenge their son, Jake, to wear a hotdog costume for school pictures.
And Jake rose to the challenge magnificently.
See the results below:
Look closer; there's even some relish on the sides.
Reportedly Craig offered Jake $10 to take the pic as a hot dog, and wrote the boy a permission note that ended with "please let this happen!".
"Jake was hesitant a first, but I was like, 'No, it's gonna be awesome; just trust me'."
Craig told TODAY Parents:
"Everyone was like, 'There's hot dog boy.' Jake's outgoing and likes being in the spotlight, so it worked out."
