The modern world is SO fake -- just look at the label (below). A picture of the Swiss Alps, which CLEARLY leads you to believe you are drinking spring water.
The world is so detached from reality it's sick.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Pepsi announced Friday that the labels of its Aquafina water bottles will be changed to say the product is tap water, according to Pepsi-Cola North America spokeswoman Michelle Naughton.
"The label currently reads: 'Bottled At The Source P.W.S.' The change will be made to spell out 'P.W.S.' by reading 'Public Water Source,' " Naughton told CNN.
Pepsi will change current labels on water bottles to spell out 'Public Water Source.'
Naughton could not provide a time-table for when customers will see the label change on store shelves, she only said "the change will occur over time," as new labels are created so as not to waste any labels already produced.
In addition, Pepsi released the following statement: ""If this helps clarify the fact that the water originates from public sources, then it's a reasonable thing to do."
Coca-Cola also admitted in 2004 that its bottled water Dasani is tap water. The label on the bottle says the water is filtered through a "state-of-the-art purification system" but does not state where the water originates from.
Shares of Pepsi (down $0.44 to $66.40, Charts, Fortune 500) fell nearly 1 percent during midday trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Shares of rival Coke (down $0.30 to $52.68, Charts, Fortune 500) also edged lower. Top of page
