These days there are so many rappers with obscure names, this girl’s hilarious error is pretty understandable.
Ursula, a 19-year-old from Reading, was just messaging her boyfriend Matthew when he brought up the ‘weird flick cap’ that ‘Lidl water’ has now. With no context, I’m sure you’d make the same mistake she did.
‘Lidl Water’ definitely sounds like they could be a Soundcloud rapper, so Ursula did what any girl would do and turned to her girl’s group chat for answers on who ‘lil water’ was, and asked her boyfriend ‘who’s that?’
This hilarious conversation ensued:
Ursula told UNILAD:
I was just texting Matthew and he mentioned the thing about Lidl water. I didn’t realise at first and asked Chloe and my other friend if they knew who he was.
Then Matthew replied with ‘water from Lidl’ and I realised – at this point I was laughing – so I showed Chloe and she said, ‘I have to tweet that.’
We just laughed about it and I told him Chloe had tweeted about it. We moved on pretty quickly but didn’t expect such a huge response from it.
I think it’s funny, it was such a silly small thing and we didn’t expect it to grow so much, after it got to a thousand it grew really quickly. I say that kind of thing a lot so it didn’t seem that big a deal at the time.
Matthew was literally just talking about the bottle cap on water from Lidl, but many people on Twitter related to Ursula’s faux pas, saying it looked like one of their conversations.
Ursula’s friend Chloe is the one who posted the interaction on Twitter, unexpectedly receiving over 3k retweets and 18k likes.
Among the many people who saw the post was Lidl. The Irish Twitter account for the supermarket replied to Chloe’s tweet, joining in the joke.

Chloe, who posted the messages to Twitter, said:
When it happened she’d asked us if we’d known any rappers called ‘lil water’ because it’s an honest mistake since there’s so many artists with lil in front of their name. But when she sent us the message and she realised what he actually meant we all had a laugh about it.
Honestly I’m so surprised about the reaction from Twitter, I really only put it up because it was something that a few friends and I found funny at the time and I didn’t imagine it would get that big.
One Twitter user predicted a response from Lidl, saying she would probably ‘get some free water’, while another pointed out the genius marketing idea that Ursula came up with, mistaking Lidl for a rapper.
To be fair, Lidl Water is a better rapper name than some of the ones that do exist.
