You thought Morrisons’ baguette advert mounted on the Angel of the North was crazy? Think again.
In October 2015, a Japanese soft drink company called Otsuka Pharmaceutical will put an advert on the moon.
The makers of a drink called, ahem, Pocari Sweat, will install a titanium “dream capsule” shaped like a can on the moon using a Falcon 9 rocket. The dream capsule has messages engraved from Japanese school children.
In a statement, Otsuka Pharmaceutical said: “The capsule will launch from Florida in October 2015.
“Until now, the space travel was only possible at a national project level.
“Now, we want to realise it privately and get to the moon.”
