Parody Video Sums Up Everything We Think When We See Rich People’s Fancy Water Ads

Are you into “artisanal” bottled water? Maybe you fancy yourself some expensive Acqua Panna, the way-too-mainstream Perrier or maybe you are the fool who likes Voss.

Thankfully for the world, we have the Brooklyn-based “Timmy Brothers,” who are expert craftsmen of bespoke bottled water that helps thirsty people feel less thirsty. They can tell you what wetness sounds like or what water is really about (it’s about freedom).

OK, they are really the creation of writer/director Paul Riccio, whose hilarious satire is basically every fancy bottled water ad you’ve ever seen in your life.
