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=c6Vhc...

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 didn’t search for this. There’s nothing that would indicate that I would want this.
But I like it.

I don’t care about the 1 take I’m more fascinated with the fact you have one of the bottles from 2004

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

I once was at a wedding in Rotherham and they had £12 bottles of "Immingham spring water" on the tables. Immingham has no springs. It does however have two oil refineries and a large port and is covered in coal dust...

"Because here...comes a lorry!" 😂
Also Britain, don't worry; you're not missing out on much by not having Dasani. 😅
