Weekly Watch: Sneaky Starbucks

Have you ever wondered how Starbucks always manage to spell your name wrong? Is it just a publicity stunt to get people to tell their online friends?

Comedian, Paul Gale, has created a video which has to make you think whether Starbucks staff’s misspelling of the most simple names is actually done on purpose.

Are Starbucks purposely spelling people’s names wrong to get their customers to upload pictures to social media sites and tell their friends? It makes sense as they get a huge amount of publicity from customers sharing online and surely it’s not upsetting enough for their consumers to boycott the coffee shop.

This is something we will never find out if it’s true or false as Starbucks’ PR team would look guilty either way if they were to comment!

Check out this blog (http://starbucksspelling.tumblr.com/) with tonnes of photos of Starbucks misspellings which is sure to give you some laughs!
