Former creative director for Netflix puts water in a can, calls it punk and raises $1.6 million in funding (CNBC)

Canned water brand Liquid Death claims to have a punk sensibility, but it’s unlikely to scream “anarchy.” Capitalism might be more appropriate.

The start-up just raised $1.6 million in seed funding, thanks to its marketing expertise. From its name to the melted skull on the front of the can, Liquid Death sells itself as the punk option for bottled water drinkers, saying it will “murder your thirst.”
