#WaterBottlegate responses: Senator Rubio scores big; Poland Spring late to the game [photos]


Ha! Yes, he does. As Twitchy reported, it was the sip heard ’round the world. Rubio laughed it off this morning, but he also tweet-laughed it off last night. A Rubio adviser tweeted a picture of the  famous water bottle, and Senator Rubio followed that up with the photo tweet of his own.

Today, Poland Spring gets in on the action. Finally.

A little late indeed. Oh, Poland Spring, you could take a lesson from Oreo’s social media team! They were so on the ball that they had a power outage related ad (for free) up on Twitter within minutes after the power outage at the Super Bowl. In comparison, Poland Spring took over 12 hours to cash in on the sip heard ’round the world via its Facebook page.

There is still no mention on Poland Spring’s woefully inactive Twitter feed.

Lesson learned, Poland Spring?

    Well, I guess Rubio has shown support the dangerous and deadly chemical DHMO. Will Democrats release legislation to ban it soon… DHMO.org

      DHMO kills more people than guns—FACT!

    • GaryTheBrave

      DHMO is a chemical compound used extensively in Agriculture and Manufacturing. It is odorless and colorless. It can be found in a solid, liquid, or gaseous state. It’s natural state is as a liquid. To make it solid the temperature must be brought down to 0 degrees Celsius or below. To make it a mist the temperature must be brought up to at least 100 degrees Celsius.

      DHMO is generally harmless unless inhaled in large quantities in its natural state. A tablespoon or more is needed to create pulmonary disruption. Death is nearly instantaneous.

    ” Eeegads, the horror! They didn’t immediately run to Tweet something.”

    According to Pew Research in May 2012, 8% of the US population use Twitter daily.

    In other words, 92% do not so yeah, calm down…the world doesn’t revolve around your Twitter updates. I suspect Poland Springs will survive this “huge social media opportunity” bearing in mind they got free advertising in front of, oh I dunno….25-30 million people.

    Perspective is a wonderful thing.

      The narcissistic special snowflakes believe that every single moment of their lives must be documented and shared with the entire world.

    I don’t get all the attention on a sip of water. Not like it was a BIG gulp of soda to upset Bloomberg or anything? I think Rubio is a gem. I like him a lot. He was so funny here. all 3 parts. (and yes, he sipped water) http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-august-28-2012/exclusive—marco-rubio-extended-interview-pt–1

    Apparently Poland Spring prefers to use Facebook. That photo is a photoshop version of their bottle. They don’t have the brand on both sides. The back side has the nutrition info.
