"Trapped in bottle factory - send help"

That's way the best bottom tag. Had us laughing our pants off. Good one Iain.

Great work - I love these.

Uhm, you can get the t-shirt to go with one of them:

Hmm, deja vu!!

John is the cutest boy in the whole world. I have proof.

Loved the "rub bottle..."

May I request that the first one reads " if you listen really hard... (not real hard) can't have Innocent using bad grammar or you will have your gra'mmar after you. tee hee

You can also buy in case of emergency breakdance samplers here -

More deja vu!

Thanks for letting us know.

We hadn't realised this was already out there in tshirt format.

I've emailed threadless to let them know and will make sure we send them some smoothies with this bottom as a tribute to their excellent tees.

for the record - i hadn't realised either :(

hope this doesn't get you into any copywright/courtroom drama kinda situations

sorry :(

"Trapped in bottle factory - send help."

ABSOLUTE GENIUS. Hats off to that man.

These are all fab, though I think "In case of emergency, breakdance" is probably my favourite :)

Trapped in bottle factory - that's hilarious! :-) Oh, and when are we going to see Innocent Smoothies in Norway? I realise there are more people in Sweden and Denmark, but we feel kinda left out :-(

I didn't know that there were comments on the bases of the bottles - standing on my head from now on!

I thought that the great phrase "Does my bum look big in this" would be on here.

I had been thinking "Warning - Do not turn this bottle upside down" would have been a good one.

Can I please echo the sentiment of Vee Soar? It's quite upsetting to see that such poor grammar ("if you listen real hard..") will be appearing on the world's best drinks! Love the other quotes though!

Looking at the bottom of Innocent bottles has become an addiction. I get strange looks when I stand in supermarkets looking at them all!

Absolutely another plea for it to be "really" not real. Innocent humour is so quintessentially English and your drinks such utterly high quality, one could expect no less of you.
Thought the "rub the bottle to free genie" had a slightly wistful quality.

i like 'all the cool kids drink from this end'! It's childish!

I love your sense of humour and all your letters. I look forward to seeing your product in th USA someday. Thanks for all the good fun.

i wanted 2 enter this competition but i came 2 late ): My favourite one is Trapped in a bottle factory - send help. It would be really funny if someone accually believed it and called the police though!

These are great, and I've really enjoyed reading them in the past! I'm making the assumption that the person who suggested the first one ('real hard') didn't learn English on these shores? Please please please don't leave it in that horrible American format. 'Listen really hard'.
Thanks!

Trapped in Bottle Factory is just a bit reminiscent of the stickers that say Trapped in Sticker Factory, Send Help.

yes, "really" not "real" please! thank you!!! xxx

HA HA HA..loved them all ...actually I just love Innocent..thank you for making it fun :)

"REALLY"!!!!
This is not America! :o)

I have to agree with the 'correct grammar please' requests!! Otherwise I may have to boycott all the ones that say 'real' and get thrown out of supermarkets for picking up endless bottles and reading the bottoms to find one that doesn't say it ...

Just to echo what many others have said...please don't put "real hard" on your bottoms - it ought to be "really hard"! Thank you!

Excuse me. But I'd like to weigh in, as an American. We don't say 'real hard' either!

However, why doesn't everyone lighten up? This is supposed to be fun.

I've come here to complain. I just don't think it's fair that someone gets to win a competition by using a slogan stolen from another company. I thought the idea was to come up with original slogans. How nice that you want to send smoothies to Threadless. What about all the other people whose original captions weren't considered because you picked this plagiarised one instead?

Plagiarism is not cool and, more to the point, it's not innocent. This entry should be disqualified and another winner picked if you guys have even a scrap of decency. I can't believe you didn't Google the captions to see if they'd been used elsewhere - that's what anyone with an ounce of common sense would have done.

I'm really disappointed in you, Innocent. I didn't realise you condoned cheating.

It really should be really even in jokes especially from an Oxford Phd person.

p.s. I don't care if Richard says he didn't know. If you are devising a creative slogan you should look it up to check it doesn't already belong to someone else. The fact is this was supposed to be a competition to come up with original ideas, wasn't it?

Hi! I didn't know the competition had a deadline, I only bought a carton the other day and it was asking for suggestions on the base of it. Perhaps the deadline was only for the bottles? Perhaps I'm still in with a chance?!

My idea, for what it's worth, goes thusly:

"If you're reading this, you'd better hope the lid is on."

I also wanted to submit a suggestion, but computer developed problems that took a month to resolve. My slogan was
"I'm the cheekiest bottom in town."

Hello Emma.

We're not fans of plagiarism either. Richard says that he didn't realise that someone else had thought of the same line as he did, and we'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt and trust what he says.

We also got in touch with Threadless to make sure that they didn't take it the wrong way. I'm sure they won't - they seem like good people.

And that's about it. We hope you've got over your disappointment in us.

late for 'bottoms' didn't know about it but how about'whoopsy daisy'

does my bum look big on this

My goodness ........... you are ugly?

i have vodka in this bottle ???

HELP .. this bottle is stuck to my lips.

"STOP PEEPING"

Don't drink and drive

Mmmmm once tasted NEVER wasted.....

yes, I too have a bottom...

In this context, I actually prefer 'listen real hard', although I am aware it is not 'correct' grammar. Makes it somehow more whimisical, funny and yes - innocent.

LOVE the fun creative thing you've done here with your product. But what is American ice hockey? Is that like freedom fries?

I love how at the end it says that John slept right through a earth quake. What a great funny thing to put down.
