In march there where 3 Jesus sightings in quick succession: in a cushion, on Google Earth and in a meteorite.
We spotted a fantastic Have a break, have a KitKat opportunity here. 
One day before Easter, I sent an email to the two largest Dutch news sites. And wrote, with a non existing person from Amsterdam as sender, that I discovered the face of Jesus in his KitKat after taking a bite, and attached 2 photos as proof. One of them published the story immediately.
Then it spread like wildfire. Within four days, KitKat Jesus was on more than 150k sites.
