Fresh Air For Sale

When you click on Bottled Fresh Air at Dupé (du-pay) and try to add it to your cart, you'll get a reminder about the expense of bottled water.


You can also try to buy Good Vibrations, Moonlight, Positive Thoughts, Compliments From Nana, Good Moods, Well-Wishing and Bottled Sunshine. It's a fake site to remind users of Yarra Valley Water to use tap water in Melbourne, Australia.

Here's the website.

Or you could buy "Nothing" at Amazon for $9.93.

Click here for nothing.

Because "Nothing is precious and nothing is sacred."
