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

Found in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Translation for Thai language description :

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

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

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

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! 😉

DieselDragon

…Then we were introduced to the Evangelist Church!

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

Uh, Diesel Dragon:

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

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

@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? 🙂

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

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….
