The Billion Dollar Water Story

Chris Busch writes:

Take Evian ?? origins in the French Alps, mountain aquifer, special bottling process.  Feel fresh, young, and beautiful with Evian, the original beauty product.  The story tells of the Cachat Springs located in the quaint town of Evian-les-Bains on the southern shore  of Lake Geneva in the Haute Savoie region of the French Alps.  Suddenly I’m having a European experience through the bottle of chilled water I just procured at the c-store with the filthy floors.  I feel healthier.  I’ve redefined cool.  It’s not just water, but water from the French Alps.  It’s superb water.  Beyond all other waters.  I feel smarter.  I look better.  You’ve lifted me out of my mundane, middle-class existence.  Thank you, Evian.  I love you.  I need you.

And for those that are missing the point: hey, it’s just water.

Of course, it’s not just water. You can solve your thirst problem for free. You buy bottled water because of the way it makes you feel, because of the impact the story has on your mood, not because you need the fluid.
