The sad but beautiful story of water, as narrated by Penélope Cruz
True
Stella Artois

We don't usually hear from nature or the elements, of course. But if they could express their feelings, what would they say? This imagined monologue from water, narrated by Penélope Cruz, is haunting but beautiful.


The story of water is never-ending. It truly is a circle (OK, a cycle). Did you know that on average, deep groundwater is 10,000 years old? That means there is water underground now that has been there for 10,000 years or more. In other words, it's been there since there were mammoths roamin' around the planet. Mammoths! That, my friend, is very old water.

Needless to say, water has seen and experienced way more on Earth than humans have. We may need it, but it surely does not need us.

"Where will humans find me when there are billions more of them around? Where will they find themselves?"

But in the end, they decided to donate $5,000 they'd raised for the trip to help out their community members struggling in the wake of the pandemic instead.
