Report: ‘Dumb Starbucks’ revealed as TV prank

Los Angeles – The “Dumb Starbucks” parody store which opened in Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 8 has been revealed to be a prank for a Comedy Central TV show. According to the Associated Press, comedian Nathan Fielder made a public announcement on Feb. 10 that he opened the store for use in his TV show “Nathan for You.”

The store has since been shut down for operating without a valid health permit. Starbucks spokespeople told the Associated Press that Starbucks had been investigating violation of its trademark but may be willing to resolve the matter informally.
