WHAT IS DUMB STARBUCKS COFFEE ?
Something great is brewing in American coffee shops. A place called “Dumb Starbucks Coffee“ is also being called an “art gallery“. The company is using a small legal loophole called “parody art” to allow the ‘Faux Coffee Shop’ to use logos, color schemes, and fonts of the Starbucks super brand. This funny spoof coffee shop has renamed itself “Dumb Starbucks Coffee”. This ‘Dumb’ Starbucks just opened up on 1802 Hillhurst Ave, Los Feliz, California and has been a hit with locals. As you walk in you will find it looking just like any other Starbucks, but the difference is in the menu, cups, logos, CDs and employee uniforms. They all have the word ‘Dumb’ before Starbucks Coffee, this is how the owner uses the ‘parody law.
‘“Although we are a fully functioning coffee shop, for legal reasons Dumb Starbucks needs to be categorized as a work of parody art. So, in the eyes of the law, our “coffee shop” is actually an art gallery and the “coffee” you’re buying is actually the art. But that’s for our lawyers to worry about. All you need to do is enjoy our delicious coffee!”
Megan Adams a spokesperson for Starbucks said “Its obviously not a Starbucks”. Still people line up out the door for there “Dumb Starbucks Coffee”. They will wait hours to get there hands on this cultural hot spot. As the trend starts people are saying they would like to see more of these ‘Dumb’ shops popping up all over.
