Why You Can’t Buy Dasani Water in Britain

Coca-Cola’s brand of bottled water, Dasani, was a flop in the UK after the public realised it was just filtered tap water. But the story’s a bit more complicated than it might seem. | Drinking Dasani with Ashens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6VhcpwFZJM

    If you wish I’d drunk some of this: so do I! And you’re in luck, because Ashens and I did just that over on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6VhcpwFZJM

    I was just trying to take a walk, this guy kept following me, gabbing about Dasani. I slowly backed away for 10 minutes.

    Where i’m from, “tap water”, “mineral water” and “alkaline water” is the same thing. Not cuz we don’t distinguish the 3, but cuz we get alkaline mineral water from the tap…

      In Ontario Canada tap water is overloaded with chlorine, cant drink without a filter jug unless you want to puke instantly.

    • Cooper Olm says:

      @Ii T ??? I live in Ontario and everyone I know drinks tap water no problem. Well… I don’t but that’s just because I’m on a well and the water is very hard. When I’m in the city I drink tap and like the taste a lot better than bottled water. I suppose your areas water might be worse though.

    • Ii T says:

      @Cooper Olm Windsor, the water has a lot of chlorine smell and taste. You can make tea, cook food and everything else but drinking it instantly is hard.

    In the 60’s there was a bottled water in Dorset called “Piddle Water” the water was from the Piddlehinton brewery? it was bottled water and in that area water was abstracted from the chalk basin where the Piddle flows.

    • Sycamore Flaw says:

      Not sure what is worse that or if the hamlet of Shitterton, neighbouring Bere Regis decided to make bottled water

    • Smallgremlin Gremlin says:

      That sounds hilarious – I’d buy a bottle

    • economicist2011 says:

      OK so “piddle” has the same connotation in the UK as in the US? Fantastic.

    • Matt B says:

      Name aside, it does make sense. I guess brewers are rather particular regarding the quality of the water they use, so a brewery selling water is like a seal of approval.

    Tom “One-take” Scott

  10. Otto von Hammersmark says:

    “Can’t live without spunk” oh gods, that made my day

  11. Aaron says:

    I think Tom’s excited “one take!” at the end of these videos is the best part

  12. robert hamilton says:

    This should be titled why waste money on marketing, get water at home.

  13. tenelitebrains says:

    The whole time I was watching, I was thinking to myself “I wonder how many takes this took?” Well done!

  14. Dash Aarniokoski says:

    Tom: I need to record audio of myself talking, let’s do it NEXT TO A HIGHWAY WHILE I WALK FOR 10 MINS

  15. feloberto says:

    “That’s an odd location to film a video…”
    *camera pans left*
    “Okay then.”

  16. boobbbers says:

    People are talking about Tom’s “one take” ability but nobody’s mentioning his ability to wear a red shirt and grey hoodie for the past 5+ years.

  17. Xakhary Abercrombie says:

    In my head I thought
    “That’s cool and all but
    Why is the bottle so blue?”

  18. Cedric Ye says:

    Best quote of the video:

    “It’s all just water.”

  19. Just Some Guy without a Mustache says:

    “It’s basically coke without the syrup”

    Gee, I didn’t think I’d mix codeine with my coke, that’s overkill.
