WAT-AAH! is a line of functional water free of sugar, artificial flavoring or coloring of any kind and tastes like pure unadulterated water. Rose Cameron – the CEO and the Founder – created WAT-AAH! after learning the alarming fact that today’s generation of kids are predicted to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, largely due to childhood obesity and over consumption of sodas and sugary drinks.
Inspired by her two boys and Cameron’s 20+ years of experience in brand building and developing successful national marketing campaigns for various brands and companies, she and her sons worked together to design WAT-AAH!’s screaming boy logo and its first line of functional products which entered the market in 2008. Since then, WAT-AAH! has aimed to make water “cool” and contemporary to kids and teens to encourage their consumption. Some of WAT-AAH!’s major campaigns include the Don”t Drink S#!+! outdoor ads, Show Me WAT-U-GOT! Talent Competition and partnerships with young music talents like OMG Girlz, Willow Smith, Jonas Brothers to name a few. WAT-AAH! is also known for its partnership with the NABEF and Beyonce for their annual initiative, Let’s Move! Flash Workout. To learn more, visit www.wat-aah.com.
