Earth has escaped the Asteroid 2018 VP1 unscathed. However, if something similar apocalyptic were to happen and everything else was smashed into smithereens, you can be sure Oreo cookies will continue to exist even you and I won’t because, Global Oreo Vault.
The maker of the world’s most famous chocolate-and-creme sandwich cookies had leveraged on the fact that the asteroid will be making a pass on Earth on November 2 to pull a PR campaign that is sure to put a smile on our faces.
The company has uploaded a mockumentary-style video on YouTube on October 23, detailing how they have built a concrete doomsday vault in Norway to keep its cookies safe.
The vault was a played at the Global Seed Vault in the Arctic which was designed to preserve the world’s botanical legacy in the event natural or man-made disasters strike. Instead of seeds, Oreo’s vault will keep the cookies safe. Here are what were being “stashed” inside:
The Global Oreo Vault was supposedly located in a secret location not far from the actual Svalbard Global Seed Vault, at these coordinates: 78°08’58.1″N, 16°01’59.7”E.
Don’t bother trying to locate this place on Google Earth, let alone visiting it. I did. There is nothing there. It is nothing but a mass of gray landscape. But if you zoom out, you can kind of see the seed vault, though.
Keep going for the video. Yes. We are a little late on this, but rest assure it has some face-palm moments which make it worth the watch.
