Life Inside a Water Bottle

On the whole, bottled water is pretty stupid: A dollar a quart for something that normally sells for a fraction of a penny a gallon. What's more, the number one reason your grandparents wear dentures and you don't is that your teeth grew in with the benefit of fluorinated municipal water; rear up your children on bottled water, and they'll end up smiling like your grandparents.

All that aside, this guy shot VR-style film of his house from "inside" a water bottle, which is, we have to admit, pretty fkn cool.


  1. Dude, I thought the H2O flowing out of D.C. taps was notorious - named as the foulest, least healthy beverage to be poured that didn't come directly outta the Charles or LAke Erie...

  2. Well, the lead levels have come under scrutiny lately. And after the third time the water treatment plants were found to have failed to adequate chlorinate the water, our hospital's decreed that tap water should no longer be given to patients. (Yes, the nurses really do pour sips of Dasani for patients to swallow their medicines.)

    We, however, enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of the lead and the pungent bouquet of the cholera. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
