Dumb Starbucks

On February 13, 2014, in press, by True Feel

On Sunday, comedian Nathan Fielder opened up a parody shop of Starbucks in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. He called it “Dumb Starbucks” and was able to do so under the same parody law that allows Wierd Al to produce all the music he does. As long as he’s “making fun” of it..it’s totally cool. To avoid health code and permits, they opened up shop as an “art gallery” and the coffee was the “art.”

Everything on the menu was just like your typical Starbucks, except dumber…

Even the music was pretty dumb.

This was a great way to have fun with the big guys and remind them that people like to have fun with business and it doesn’t have to always be so serious. This location (the first and only) has since been shutdown by the Los Angeles Health Department, but since it’s registered as an “art gallery” and not “food.” Since when does an art gallery need a health permit?

Oh well, it was funny while it lasted.
