This is a Ty Nant water bottle.
Very clever and effective. - gary

I'll tell you how I did it - it's seriously easy. Tied the bottom of the bottle (taped it) to a piece of twine, and tied it to a horizontal bar so the bottle is now hanging upside down and empty. Placed a bucket underneath on the floor. Set up the camera on a tripod and set the studio flash up. It was on low power to get a short duration flash to freeze the action. Then filled the bottle by holding it the right way up. Got my assistant (wife) to put her hand over the opening of the bottle and hold it upside-down. At my command she took her hand away, and I fired the camera and lights. The water glugged out and the camera recorded it.
Of course, it didn't look like it does here, as the bottle was upside-down in the shot - so I just rotated the shot 90 deg in Photoshop to give the impression that the water was being ejected side-ways. The camera never lies... not!
