That is, until we figured out that tap water is more profitable…

Found in Koh Samui, Thailand.

  2. popper | 3:39 am |

    We believed in high quality product, but not now!

  3. Big Fat Cat | 3:44 am |

    The origin of Water Gate.

  4. Big Fat Cat | 3:47 am |

    Translation for Thai language description :

    Take note this high quality product is produced from the finest algae water.

  5. beechoak | 3:51 am |

    …then we sacrificed quality for lower production costs…

  6. beechoak | 3:52 am |

    Everybody needs something to believe in. I believe I’m going to switch to beer!

  7. beechoak | 3:52 am |

    Oh, ye of little quality faith…

  8. Algernon | 3:54 am |

    This water has been passed.

  9. kringo | 4:02 am |

    . . . but we couldn’t figure out how to stack water in a pile, to make a hill.

  10. kringo | 4:04 am |

    Water Hill: a product of General Motors.

  11. Pete | 4:14 am |

    …until we reviewed our sales data and found nobody was buying our water anyway, so now we believe in Zero Care.

  12. Grifter | 5:04 am |

    We believed in high quality product…. until we found this.

  13. jjhitt | 5:13 am |

    Not worth a hill of water.

  14. coffeebot | 5:42 am |

    Now we believe in Marketing!

  15. Choo-Choo | 5:49 am |

    …But that was too much work for us.

  16. kringo | 6:28 am |

    . . . now we try to mask our mediocrity, crying “sour grapes” by indiscriminately voting “low quality” on everybody else’s captions.

  17. Dude | 9:05 am |

    We believed in high quality product, but then we switched the stuff with hydrochloric acid & figured no one would notice.

  18. Blaze | 10:16 am |

    We also believed in Santa Claus. When are YOU gonna grow up, huh?!

  19. DieselDragon | 1:36 pm |

    When the time came to market Dasani to the Thai public, Schwepps finally decided to be more or less honest about their product for once! 😉

  20. DieselDragon | 1:38 pm |

    …Then we were introduced to the Evangelist Church!

  21. DieselDragon | 1:39 pm |

    …Then we read DieselDragon’s captions on Engrish.com! 😀

  22. Pete | 1:48 pm |

    Uh, Diesel Dragon:

    Dasani is a Coca-Cola product, not a Schweppes product.
    Check the label, dude.

  23. Brandon | 1:52 pm |

    Great. Now I have the song “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” stuck in my head.

  24. DieselDragon | 2:03 pm |

    @Pete: As far as I know, Coca-Cola is/was owned by Schweppes beverages, at least that’s the case here in the UK.
    Schweppes/Coca-Cola tried to sell Dasani over here a few years ago, but there was a big consumer backlash against it when it was found that the “pure” water in Dasani was actually coming from mains water supplies in Sidcup! 😮
    (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dasani#United_Kingdom for more info)

    After all…Who wants to pay GBP 1.25 for a bottle of tap-water, when you can get all that you want from your own kitchen sink as part of your yearly water rates? :)

  25. Ralph Hamilton | 3:14 pm |

    We believed in a high quaality product, but our shareholders insisted we make a profit instead. This water has been passed by our CFO.

  26. Pete | 3:22 pm |

    Diesel Dragon:

    True that. Didn’t know about Schweppes’ role re Coke in the UK.
    Stateside, Dasani’s Coca-Cola all the way.

    My bad, mate.

    And now for more Engrish….

  27. Cecily | 6:19 pm |

    The actual mistake is with the name itself : what they wanted to say is water Tower…

  31. Andrew | 5:44 pm |

  33. arasuki | 7:46 pm |
