‘Dumb Starbucks’ Parody Coffee Shop Opens in L.A.
A new coffee shop called “Dumb Starbucks” had crowds waiting in line for hours on Sunday for a cup of coffee in L.A.
The store opened Friday and is an exact copy of a real Starbucks, only this one had a CD called ‘Dumb Jazz Standards’ for sale, along with “Dumb Iced Coffee,” “Dumb Frappuccinos” and the special seasonal drink “Wuppy Duppy Latte.”
Iced coffees and lattes were free to promote the store, and hundreds lined up to try them, but they weren’t sure what to make of it. A spokesperson for the real Starbucks said the company was aware of the parody, but declined to say if Starbucks is considering legal action against Dumb Starbucks.
