Why does Starbucks always gets our names wrong when filling our orders? You know what we mean. You give the barista your name — lets say Roberta — and when the time comes to tell you that your half-caf latte with skim milk is ready they call out “Bobeta!”

Well now a group of some very insightful conspiracy theorists think that they know the answer to one of the world’s greatest mysteries. YouTube channel Super Deluxe says that Starbucks does this one purpose. Starbucks does so because it wants the free publicity.

Think about it. How many times have you seen some tweet or post to Facebook an image of their name misspelled on their Starbucks cup. This has probably been done millions of times by now. Talk about a brilliant marketing campaign.

“Think about it, Starbucks are the largest coffee chain in the world. Meaning that millions of people all around the world have their names misspelled on cups of coffee, ” say the people from Super Deluxe in the video.

“They take pictures of their butchered names and post them on Facebook, Instagram, Tumbler, whatever and what do all these pictures have in common? Two things, a misspelled name and that familiar green siren staring at you — with her all-knowing gaze.”

“That’s right, sheeple, you’ve been giving Starbucks free advertising for years. That innocent little scribble on your pumpkin spiced latte is tugging on the subconscious of your friends to go out and buy pumpkin spiced lattes of their own. Only for them to have their names misspelled, take a picture and perpetuate this frothy cycle of control.”

The group sent a woman who used the simple name Molly into three different Starbucks outlets. In three her name was misspelled Molli, Mali and Mommy.

So could Starbucks really be this devious, or is it just a matter of overworked people under pressure not having the time to write down every name properly? Well its probably a little of both.

 

 

Super Deluxe says that it is a community of creative weirdos making videos that are (they hope) more substantial than much of what you see on the internet today. “Subscribe for original shorts, series, animations, and more things that are, as one of our beloved commentators put it, ‘Always weird to watch but hard to look away.'”
