Pißwasser

A suggestive TV commercial for Pißwasser beer.

Pißwasser (mispronounced in-game as "pisswasser"; the correct pronunciation is actually "pissvasser") is a fictional German export lager frequently advertised in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. 'Wasser' in the beer's name translates into English as 'water', making the beverage's literal name 'piss water', which is a slang term for cheap, watered-down beer. Billboards seen in-game expand the urine references, even going so far as to suggest the bottles contain nothing but urine (perhaps in reference to the urine in Corona beer rumor). Furthermore, the television ad has labeled the brand with the words 'Ü-Rhine', which is probably also a nod to the Rhine river in Germany (also a pun on "urine"). The labels on the bottles are similar to Grafenwalder's labeling. The beer's slogan is "You're In, For A Good Time", once again playing to the urine theme.

The radio and TV advertisements for the beer feature variations of a song sung by a stereotypical redneck man with lyrics that portray comically exaggerated effects of alcoholism, including "giving a dude head" and "driving drunk off a pier". A pack of Pißwasser costs 6 dollars at 24/7.

Some webmasters have received a six-crate Pißwasser from Rockstar[1], one notably to UK website ComputerAndVideoGames.com[2].

Jingles

Television/long radio jingle

Last night, I think I shit the bed,
Got so drunk, I gave a dude head,
Life is just a merciful blur,
When you pop a Pißwasser.
Pißwasser, don't drink it slow,
3 a.m., buy some blow,
Sleep in the bathroom on the floor,
What really matters anymore?
All the crap you do all day,
Who fucking cares anyway?!
Pißwasser, this is beer!
Drive drunk off a pier!
Pißwasser, drink all day!
It helps your troubles go away, yeah yeah!
Pißwasser: cheap German lager for export only.

Short radio jingle

You work your nuts off everyday,
A proud American all the way.
Life is just a merciful blur,
When you pop a Pißwasser.
Pißwasser, this is beer!
Drive drunk off a pier!
I love drinking all day long,
I beat my girlfriend while I sing this song.
Pißwasser: cheap German lager for export only.

Trivia

  • The Pißwasser website, as seen on their advertisements and registered by Rockstar, is http://www.piswasser.com. However, the eszett, ß, is properly replaced by a double, rather than single 's', and is generally replaced by the double 'ss' by the web browser if entered directly into a domain name—'piswasser.com', for example, can be accessed by going to http://www.piswaßer.com instead.
