So Apparently Dumb Starbucks is a Thing

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but we don’t know what to make of this new coffee shop called Dumb Starbucks.
According to Dumb Starbucks President Nathan Fielder, Dumb Starbucks offers everything than a normal Starbucks would. The only difference is that they are not affiliated with Starbucks at all. In fact, the only reason they can use the Starbucks name and logo is because they’ve added the word “dumb” in front of everything, which fulfills the minimum requirements to be considered a parody of the original, Seattle-based coffee shop.
The menu at Dumb Starbucks is almost identical to the offerings you’d find at a normal Starbucks, save for the word “dumb” slapped in front of everything. Even the music selection at the register is similar, but with a decidedly more “dumb” motif. Fielder, a comedian, assures us that this isn’t a joke and that it’s a legitimate business he plans to get rich from, so he urges everyone to come visit Dumb Starbucks in Los Angeles.
If you find yourself wanting a Dumb Chai Tea Latte or a Dumb Caramel Cappuccino, then head on down to 1802 Hillhurst Avenue in Los Angeles, CA. There you’ll be able to sample some of the best, and only, Dumb Starbucks products around. And because of its single location, you’ll get to brag to all of your friends that you’ve had the chance to drink authentic Dumb Starbucks products. Who knows how much longer these guys will be open, so get down there and get some dumb drinks now!
