Fuck Starving Kids, Have A Freakin' Delicious Starbucks Frappucino

freakin_frap.jpg

Tick, tick, tick, That's the sound of the clock counting the time it takes Starbucks lawyers to get angry, contact YouTube and ask them to yank this psuedo-frappucino commercial that compares the cost of a "freakin delicious" frappucino to feeding a starving kid in Sudan for a week but that advocates opting for the frappucino instead. Consumer-Created Media at it's finest! Except when the table is turned on the brand.

Starbucks, are they really going to care, they at least got the logo out in front, mentioned the name, talked about how good the product was. How many of us out in ye old world are realling going to care about the other message or remember it? If I want the Starbucks slush I'll but it, if I want to contribute to world hunger too I'll do it.

They need a better loking chick next time.

A sad state of affairs, I would say.

Poor production values, (a light switch as part of your background?) average looking model, and lame music all add up to Starbucks won't give a rip.

"Poor production values".

Are you retarded? Or are you so steeped in bullshit that you can't hear the message without a slick sountrack and CGI links?

Prick.

Yeah - I'm retarded, as well as steeped in bullshit. (Not to mention a Grade-A prick.)

Wake up and smell the coffee, Rob.

And the message is? Starbucks is an easy target.

That video expressed such an obvious point, and was so clumsily executed, that it seems beneath the notice of this fine web site. And the music! Why do all of those amateur crapfests have the same awful slow-pitch music choices?

Next: Did you know that smoking kills people? It's true! And that people are also paying good money for purebred dogs while mutts are being put to sleep? High school outrage 101.

Oh come on. It's just a brand spoof I thought was funny. Everything doesn't have to be perfectly fuckin polished and professionally produced.

Tom - beware Rob will find you retarded, steeped in bullshit and a prick for your views.

It's fine to make a point about starving children, or to raise awareness for your particular concern, but unless you're launching a "Skip Your Coffee - Send Money to the Sudan" campaign, why even bother with the obvious overpriced coffee attack?

Pick your cause, pick your market, raise awareness within that market.

Hey all,

I created the ad. Thanks for the lively debate. If anyone would like to shoot me a few thousand bucks I'd be happy to raise my production value - but it would be better if you sent the money to a good Charity.
