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: • 15-year-old UK Da...

You make some very elaborate videos, but I cannot imagine how difficult it is to shoot all of this in one take. The fact that you were able to line up the destination with your punch line. The fact that you were not distracted at any moment by the world going around you. The fact that you remembered every word you were planning to say. I would love to see a Tom Scott blooper reel one day!

There's a kind of pleasure in seeing a corporation as big as Cola-Cola completely failing at something, even if the media outrage was over nothing.

It wasn't over nothing. Adding a few minerals (which you could probably do at home) to regular ass (free where I live) tap water doesn't justify bottled water prices. Clearly people didn't think it was tap water. Yes it's all water, but that doesn't give the company the right to mis-sell it as something it's not.

@wrije Incorrect. Legally, they did nothing wrong, obviously. But the "dense" thing would be to claim that companies don't play upon cultural perceptions of things in order to imply their product is something more expensive or desirable than it actually is. Which is exactly what they did. They know how UK consumers take the words to mean, not because they're dense but because that's what it literallly always means in that market, and they use that to sell a cheaper to make product for the same price, or at least not adequately cheaper. Corporations won't date you.
That's all the media does, if one doesn't overreact another one will

It's absolutely incredible how Tom can not only remember his 10 minute long script, but do it in a single take AND get to the plant the second his script tells him he should point at the plant. Incredible. He doesn't even lose focus once. Ps. Cudos to the camera person for walking backwards that whole time and not stumbling.

I feel like Dasani is pushed on us in the US. More often than not it's the only bottled water you can buy in hospitals. Imagine being thirsty while waiting for something at a hospital and your options are Dasani and the water fountain. I choose the water fountain.

Coke has a history of stuff like that. They'll donate a bit of money or something -- in exchange for a lock-in as the only products sold somewhere. They do it in schools, hospitals, probably other places.

If you saw what the inside of those water pipes looked like that went to the water fountain, then you'd choose the Dasani that went through the extra purification process.
I love your genuine wholesome reactions at the end when you nail it in one take or talk about something else that was happening in the background. It's authentic and adds to your already great delivery of clearly well researched and planned out content.
I loved it too.

it's part of his manipulative editing that he talked about in another video. the unnescessary intros and outros that can be easily edited out are left in on purpose to create an illussion of authenticity and relatability. Have to admit it works and is probably a huge part of his success.

During a trip to the US I was like "hmmm what the hell is that purified water they sell in bottles ?" And it was just that. What you can do at home with a water purifier, they do sell to you in a bottle... France, like the UK, never had such a product, and like the UK, has many mineral water brands, exported all over the world (Evian, Vittel, Volvic, Perrier...). There is no way such a product would have worked once people would have known what it was in France, because they would have had the same reaction as me : "why the hell would I pay for that when tap water is so cheap?".

Landon P

@ZbabyG It's not always an issue with the city water - it can also be an issue with pipes as well. Frankly, when I drink water it has to be spring water like Icelandic Glacial, Fiji, or Evian. Purified bottled tap water leaves a chemical aftertaste that is horrible - and most tap water I have drank just has off-putting taste to me.

Riveting! Tom Scott, you make the Dasani story so much more dramatic than my former business school marketing case studies of product launches that failed disastrously. Thanks for the research, and fascinating storytelling. Have never bought Dasani here in the US, because we know it’s tap water. Apologies to my friend, who had a 20-year career in Coca-Cola marketing.

It always makes me happy to see Tom's "one take" celebrations, but what really impressed me was the camerawork. Not only did they keep Tom in centre frame while moving backwards for the full 9 minutes (and particularly while crossing the driveway), they made space for the graphics to appear when Tom mentioned them.

I remember when the Dasani story broke in the UK. People were at that time somewhat sceptical of bottled water anyway, since the tap water in most of the UK was very high quality (before Thatcher privatised it). I can assure you, nobody had to have seen the OFAH episode to be outraged at the concept of Dasani: selling our own water back to us that we we already paid a tax for.

On this side of the pond, Dasani actually started as an experiment to see if they could turn wastewater (yes, from a sewage treatment plant) could be turned into drinking water. Started at the Atlanta Metro Wastewater treatment plant. Never realized how badly it was handled on that side of the pond though.

Something else important to realize is that because of the US’s size, a majority of the country’s land doesn’t have wanted service. Most people outside of a medium size town have wells. Well water is really hit or miss. Without my VERY expensive water softener, my well water is SO hard, it’s next to undrinkable. It has so much iron, when my water softener goes down, it stains all of my clothes red. If you can’t afford a water softener, then drinking filtered tap water makes perfect sense.

I came from a part of the US where the tap water was actually delicious and safe. We all thought bottled water was stupid when you could get it for free on any street corner or water spigot. Now those same people are convinced they must buy bottled water or they will get poisoned. I now live in a desert where the water isn't so good. I filter the heck out of it and travel with bottled water because it's relatively cheap for the convenience.

Walking backwards can be easy, but only if the path is clear and predictable. I would have to assume there was a third person involved with this video.

The problem is that my family only buys Dasani and Aquafina. I’m not sure how water could taste different. I’m already gulping multiple bottles of Dasani every day, and I’ve recently came back from a trip in Deutschland. Das Wasser sind gleich. Ich habe Leitungswasser in Deutschland versucht, aber es hat gut geschmeckt.

I remember watching a UK spokesman for the brand, trying to defend it. The interviewer asked him, : " so what makes Dasani different, after all it's just tap water?" , he replied : " It goes through an incredibly technical filtration system " ,' the interviewer countered with : " 'So that's it, it's just filtered?" And about 2007, I was in Chicago, on the CTA, I saw a bottle of Dasani on the floor, and just shook my head! HOABL
You structured this story incredibly well.

I'm from Germany and over here it is very normal that people buy bottled water in the supermarket. Now, I think the majority of sold water is sparkling which one can now also easily make at home but not everybody would want to go through the hassle. But a surprisingly large amount of still water is also sold. I've never understood this. The only times in my life that I have bought bottled still water in Germany is when I was on a road trip with my girlfriend and we wanted to have a couple of bottles that we could refill. Other than that, I always drink tap water. I refuse to pay between 100 to 250 times the price of tap water in the supermarket. (And even more in restaurants because over here you won't be given free tap water; you'll have to pay for the still water!) This is only possible, of course, because the quality of our tap water is very good. (And isn't it funny that yet again, the US -the self-proclaimed greatest country on the planet- fares very poorly in comparison with the rest of the developed world.) I've been working with a humanitarian NGO in various countries in Africa and Asia in the past decade and have sadly become used to not be able to drink the tap water in all places. Which is worrisome, IMO. A concerted effort should be made to help poor countries provide potable tap water to the population. This would be hugely beneficial to the poorest among their populations who either will feel the cost of water or have to resort to drink water that might be harmful to their health.

I had a bottle of this like 20 years ago. It was aweful! I vowed to NEVER drink that crap again. I didn't know why or HOW a bottle of water could be SOOO bad.

Bottle water (wether is processed tap water or mineral water) is quite working well in Hong Kong because we folks might used up all the water in our bottle while wandering around or hiking and do need some ice cold refreshments when near a store.

That was super interesting. I have never been a fan of Dasani water because they add Salt. I get bad heartburn if I drink it.

you are the only youtuber i know who doesnt do a new shot every 4 words, it's amazing how you can just say everything within a take.

I buy it because it's one of the few waters left that come in good, solid bottles (not the crinkley kind!) that can be refilled and used again and again!

Your statement at the end is prophetic in itself - considering 'Smartwater' is the exact same thing and ultimately owned by CocaCola.

Not only did the cameran walk backwards for 9 minutes and not only did Tom remember the entire script perfectly but they timed the "there" bit with the coca cola factory so perfectly. (6:28)

Could it be and that what was said was on a prompter or actually written so it could be repeated as the speaker walked? THINK ABOUT IT!

2:31 I’m glad you brought that up because praising tap water standards in the U.S was done to discourage people from drinking bottled water more recently. Now we know to filter that and that our pipes don’t always follow those standards.

I have tried many different brands of bottled water here in the U.S. and Dasani has the best taste of all of them. and I don't care if it is treated tap water with added minerals, its good that is all I care about.

Every cold water tap MUST use drinking water in the U.K. by law. Even if it's an outside tap, or one that's only for hand washing in bathrooms and the like MUST be drinkable.

@Ash Holdaway im not 100% sure about that, as i have seen taps at sinks (in a toilet) with signs next to them saying “NOT DRINKING WATER” (maybe because the taps at the sinks are fed from a tank?), however there was a water fountain nearby (which i think did have a sign saying “DRINKING WATER”)

literally seen a video after the latest hurricane in Florida, they all panic bought bottled water, Dasani seemed to have pallets and pallets of stock while every other brand sold out

Fascinating. Great bit of marketing history that I have to say has utterly passed me by. Then again I have only ever (to this day) drunk East Surrey Water's finest, and the only time I have gone eww is back in the 1980's with Thames Water's "product" from my aunt's kitchen tap in Dagenham.

i think an important part he is forgetting is the water tastes like someone dropped a bag of nickels inside it.

You didn't miss out on anything. I am so fond of this product that I often choose to go on still thirsty rather than drink Disani.

In Australia in the 80s and 90s a popular skit show did a skit very similar about bottled tap water called… “ Tapia -- the taste of the tap.”

Even in America Dasani is viewed as one of the worst bottled waters. If you get Dasani you are either at a movie theater where they only sell Dasani or it’s the only choice at a gas station in the middle of nowhere.

Dasani, the water brand where every bottle tastes like it has a nickel in it.
so true.
I work at a Walgreens and there are customers who actually come in and buy Dasani willingly... Cases of the stuff. Rare, but they're there.
