It may be the most lucrative mistake the company has ever made.
On July 30, Katie Hoyos posted a photo of her new phone case, a picture of Disney’s Belle and Beast strolling in front of the Salt Lake Temple.
“When you order a Beauty and the Beast phone case from a company in Australia because clearly they have no idea their castle stock photo is actually the SLC temple,” Hoyos wrote on her Facebook post, which has been shared more than 5,000 times on the social media channel.
Hoyos ordered the LDS-themed “Beauty and the Beast” phone case from Pinky Beauty Australia, an Australian manufacturer, after noticing the peculiar castle in the background.
“What could be sweeter than a tale as old as time and all eternity?” Hoyos told the Salt Lake Tribune.
Despite the mix-up, Pinky Beauty Australia has benefited from its mistake. The phone case is nearly sold out on Amazon.
