One of them being that dehydration is usually a symptome of an underlying disease - which can not be cured with bottled water.
You mean an underlying disease like not drinking enough water?
Many people simply don't drink enough water, period.
I don't see where telling them to drink more is a bad thing as long as the ad carries a disclaimer to consult with a doctor if you have chronic ongoing dehydration issues, the common sense approach.
However, I saw a somewhat related US commercial the other night that made me want to scream. It was about having dry mouth and of course water will wet it, but there was this ad saying you should use some dentist approved water to wet it better!
Dentist approved bottled water can cure dry mouth better?
What the heck is it made of, H30? ;)
Holy crap, stop the planet I want to step off.
