Unexplained Mysteries – Psychic Octopus begins advertising career

Psychic Octopus begins advertising career

Posted on Monday, 2 August, 2010 | 4 comments

An octopus credited with predicting the World Cup results has become a sensation in Germany.

Paul the octopus has been handed everthing from advertisements to book deals in over 160 endorsement offers after having appeared in an advert for a local supermarket chain.

Paul the psychic octopus may have retired from predicting football matches, but his advertising career has just begun.

After shooting to fame this summer by correctly predicting the results of each of Germany’s World Cup matches — including tipping Spain to beat Netherlands in the final — the cephalopod oracle from the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen was featured in recent print ads for the German supermarket chain Rewe.
