Woolworths takes a not-so-subtle dig

Woolies social media team hop on Nine’s show success

Channel Nine’s Married at First Sight may not be sponsored by any supermarket brands, but that doesn’t stop the social media team at Woolworths getting in on the action. Cottoning on to the show’s popularity, Woolies was promoting posts across its Instagram channel mocking Married At First Sight star Troy Delmege's ability to create a good pasta dish. Delmege failed to impress his wife with the meal – giving the supermarket chain the perfect opportunity to get in a not-so-subtle dig. Following the Pasta A' La Troy image it went on to detail ‘how to *properly* make this pasta’.
