Evian's special new bottle is a tribute to Fyre Festival icon Andy King

Evian unveiled a special new bottle on Friday that will surely be in high demand.

The bottled water company teamed up with Andy King, the infamous businessman who appeared in Netflix's widely-watched Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened, to release a limited edition bottle commemorating the one-year anniversary of the documentary. 

If you recall, King was the man who was working with Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland to put together the ill-fated music festival in the Bahamas in 2018. When things went awry, King famously declared that he drove to a customs office when truckloads of Evian water were being blocked from entry onto the island, "fully prepared" to perform oral sex on an official in order to get the water through customs at the request of McFarland.

The moment quickly became a meme and King has fully embraced his role as the so-called "ultimate team player."

Since the documentary premiered, he's racked up 44K Instagram followers who saw a new paid post on their feeds on Friday morning in which King revealed a commemorative Evian bottle that says, "So good you'd do anything for it."

"Who’s thirsty!? 💦On the one year anniversary of my doc debut, @evianwater is releasing a special bottle with a new slogan… all in honor of my infamous team spirit," he captioned the post. "Follow me & tag a friend in a comment below before tomorrow (Sat 11:59PM ET) for a chance to win one of these 10 custom bottles."

"One year ago, I shared with the world my willingness to ‘take one for the team’ to bring Evian to thirsty festival-goers… and unexpectedly became an internet sensation overnight," King told People of the collaboration. "On the first anniversary, Evian is dropping a special bottle with an all-new slogan in honor of my infamous team spirit. As a long-time Evian fan — of both the water itself and the brand’s sustainable practices — I could not be more thrilled!"
