Remember that enormous waterslide that took over Potrero Hill in June? You know, the one that made a lot of us conveniently forget that we're in a massive drought and that tapping into a fire hydrant is a really bad idea. The waterslide was a publicity stunt by Bare Naked Granola, and like Sony unleashing one million bouncy balls down Filbert Street, it was a visually cool-looking and fun idea, but maybe not the most environmentally-minded thing to actually do (but when are corporations really concerned about that?). 

So yeah, the drought police (and hopefully everyone else out there) would never let this happen today, without a really huge fine and some major finger wagging, but at least we can all remember and relive the fun parts of that day by checking out this video.
