Drinking water is generally considered to be a good thing. Drinking water out of disposable plastic bottles, however, is a bad thing for the environment. And carrying around a water bottle is also no bueno because your hands could be better used giving high-fives or scrolling through Instagram. With its new Kickstarter campaign, Fred Water tackles those issues head-on with help from legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk and actor Rhys Darby, who plays Murray Hewitt on Flight of the Conchords.
Hawk and Darby star in a funny video promoting Fred’s new stainless steel flask. The flask holds 18 ounces of water, is BPA Free, and most importantly, fits conveniently in your back pocket. In the video, Hawk and fellow skater Aaron “Jaws” Homoki show off all the things (perform CPR on bunnies, play the jaws harp) they can do with their hands once they’re free from carrying cumbersome water bottles as Darby looks on in buffoonish awe.
After one day, the Kickstarter campaign had already raised more than $28,000 towards its $50,000 goal. Backers who pledge $18 will receive one of the brushed steel flasks and those who pledge $19 will be eligible for one in a powder-coated color.
