A federal Conservative Party candidate attempting to poke fun at Justin Trudeau’s comment about using “drink box water bottles” has had a difficult time getting her joke to land on social media.

On Monday, Trudeau got a bit tongue-tied when asked how his family cuts out on plastic waste while announcing his government’s plans to ban single-use plastics.

The Prime Minister told reporters that his family has “recently switched to drinking water bottles out of…water out of when we have uh bottles out of uh plastic, sorry, away from plastic towards uh paper — like drink box water bottles sort of things.”

On Wednesday, Sarah Fischer, the Conservative candidate in the Toronto electoral district of Don Valley North, decided to post a video making fun of drinking out of “box water bottles.”

The video shows Fischer attempting to drink water out of a cardboard box. “No, doesn’t work,” she says looking into the camera as she gets soaked with water.

“I tried it… those ‘drink box water bottles’ err paper box water things just don’t work,” wrote Fischer in the caption.

But many were quick to point to Fischer out that in this day and age water is sold in drink boxes.

At least we all now know that boxed water is a real thing.
