Sen. Marco Rubio’s now-infamous reach for a sip of water during his State of the Union rebuttal is the best thing to happen to Poland Spring since the invention of plastic packaging.
Twitter feeds were, well, atwitter, about Mr. Rubio’s post-State of the Union reach for a bottle of the Maine product. Poland Spring, according to search statistics, was soaring on Twitter search trends.
“I needed water, what am I going to do? God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human,” Mr. Rubio told ABC News Wednesday morning.
Poland Spring has yet to pounce on their newfound fame. But, as Fast Company reports, the water company hasn’t tweeted anything in a long time.
