Mr. Peanut is dead. Long live Mr. Peanut?

The iconic mascot of Planters supposedly died in a fiery blast this week. His funeral is set for the third quarter of Super Bowl LIV. 

But social media sleuths never miss a beat, and they’re already speculating about how, not if, the world’s dapperest peanut will make his comeback. Many are comparing Planters’ stunt to IHOP’s temporary rebrand to IHOb.
