Product Recall - Starbucks Logo Fault

On behalf of the Starbucks Coffee Corporation we would like to invite you in returning faulty logos to the ubiquitous coffee chain. Below are various ways in which people have had fun with the faulty logo.

Careful, the (beve)rage you're about to enjoy is extremely hot.

We received these pictures of a Starbucks just before it opened in North London.


Re-Call - Cup Fault - Chicago - 19-23/04/04

Over 15 starbucks inside Chicago's 'loop' downtown area. over 50 'fuck off' cups, covered by a non-defaced cup, were added to the stacks of cups on the counters of starbucks. Which is very easy to undertake, and the thought of someone getting a fuck off cappuccino is very pleasurable.

take away, or stay in

Starbucks Welcome Dubya - Bush - Fuck Off - 19-20/11/03

Just in case he didn't know, during 'the visit' we covered the area around buckingham palace and trafalgar square with bush fuck off cups.

Bush; fuck off.  Socialist Workers Party; go away.

It's also good fun to stand in front of a police man holding a cup, as close as you like.

10 people visited 20 Starbucks in the City of London. We returned, installed and performed with over 300 'fuck off' cups.

Cups were left around the interior of Starfucks, cups were placed back on the stacks of cups on the counter and we also had fun standing in a line with the cups at the front doors.

Keeping the message simple. Performers outside Starbucks.
