Fyre Festival was The Greatest Party That Never Happened, according to the Netflix documentary title. But it gave the Internet one of its most beloved memes of 2019 when businessman Andy King confessed to nearly performing oral sex on a Bahamian customs agent in exchange for shipping truckloads of Evian water bottles being held at the border.

On the one-year anniversary of the movie's release, Evian is honoring King for his dedication by devoting custom water bottles just for him with a tongue-in-cheek tagline: "So good you'd do anything for it."

"Who's thirsty!?" King teased on his Instagram post Friday (Jan. 17), featuring him holding his Evian bottle on a beautiful island reminiscent of where Fyre Festival would've taken place. "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."

Following his grandiose efforts to deliver Evian water to parched festival attendees, King gets to give away his commemorative bottles to 10 lucky winners who follow him on Instagram and tags a friend in his comments section before Saturday at 11:59 p.m. ET.

The gift that keeps on giving is due to his indomitable "team spirit," as King likes to call it, which he believes is missing from a lot of working people today. "At the end of the day, I demonstrated something which was: You know what? Sometimes you’ve gotta do whatever you’ve gotta do to get the job done," he told the Los Angeles Times in an interview last February. “Did I actually end up doing it? No. Would I have done it? Maybe. And in today’s culture, it’s hard to find people that are gonna go that extra mile to get something done properly."
