The first images of not-a-planet dwarf planet Pluto has had the Internet in a spin, with brands, as they do for most major events, keen to capitalise on the craze.
On Tuesday, America’s space agency NASA’s spacecraft flew by the dwarf planet after a nine-year journey of more than five billion kilometres, according to the ABC. The first ever pictures of Pluto have been released, and brands took to social media to express their excitement, as well as flog a product or two.
While some brands do make their social media communications relatively relevant to the Pluto Flyby, many food brands turned Pluto into something you can eat.
