Going back to July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, millions of people were excited and happy. Of course, marketers where there too, taking any chance to sell products with the historical event from cars to cereal and drinks. But returning to the present, in 2019, the history is repeating once again. This year is the 50th anniversary of the giant step for humanity, and the marketers are selling once again all kind of products.
The 50th Anniversary Is Celebrate by Selling Various Products
We can start with the most expensive product for this event, such as the limited edition Omega Speedmaster that costs $34.000 and it’s a tribute to the watch that Buzz Aldrin was wearing on his mission to the Moon. You can always choose a Budweiser Discovery Reserve which will give you a recipe from the 60s and eleven symbolic stars in the package. Also, Lego is coming with its NASA Apollo 11 lunar lander, or you can enjoy the purple Marshmallow Moon Oreo cookies if you want something sweet.
Besides this, we can’t skip the t-shirts with “One small step,” the Apollo 11 travel tumbler, or even some Saturn V crew socks. The Omega Speedmaster watches are iconic now because NASA chooses them in 1965 for the mission when the other ones failed the tests. The Apollo 13 crew used the watches for counting the seconds when the engine burn to align and re-entering to Earth. Also, you can miss the anti-gravity Fisher Space Pens, created especially for the Apollo missions, with a limited edition and a cost of $700. The materials used on these pens are from the Apollo 11 spacecraft.
Drawing to a close, even the brand Nestle, is celebrating the campaign with some recipes from 1969, because at that time, the company’s name was Stouffer’s and they provided food for Apollo 11 crew. You can also get Zippo lighters, or you can have doughnuts from Krispy Kreme and a beer from Anheuser-Busch.
