It was a massive day for Mark Zuckerberg as he announced Facebook's new name and logo.
The company's CEO did a video explaining Meta, what it means, where it comes from and what users can expect to experience in their expanded technological universe.
While it was really interesting stuff, people couldn't help but notice something going on in the background.
The house that Zuckerberg did the video from looked stunning, however the bottle of BBQ sauce acting as a bookstand on the wall was unmistakable.
Apex Marketing reports that even without the logo showing or even a mention from Zuckerberg, the placement of the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce in the video was worth around $1.8 million.
But if you were paying attention to what the company CEO was saying instead of what was behind him then you would know Meta sounds unreal.
It's essentially a virtual word where you can connect with other users and escape the dread of your current life.
You can dress your digital self into whatever form you want and fully immerse yourself in something completely and literally out of the this world.
Zuckerberg also explained the reason why he was changing the name from Facebook to Meta.
"We are a company that builds technology to connect. Together, we can finally put people at the centre of our technology. And together, we can unlock a massively bigger creator economy," he said.
He added that the name Facebook doesn't encompass everything the company does and he wants it to be seen as a 'metaverse'.
