Starbucks Misspell

By Matt Tarr

You mean they've been playing us this whole time!?

One of the best things about getting coffee from a coffee shop is having your name written on the cup.

We know it should be the coffee, but let's be honest, we all love having a bit of fun and giving a fake name every now and again!

Remember Franklin From 'My Wife And Kids'? He Looks Ripped AF And You Would Never, EVER Recognise Him!

But even if you do give your real name, there's a very high chance that the barista will actually misspell it, even if your name is Paul.

Although it seems there might be a sneaky reason as to why this happens and tbh, it really does work.

People have begun to think that Starbucks' baristas are in fact spelling your name incorrectly in the hope that you'll share the hilarious mishap on social media, giving the company some free marketing as you share it with all your pals.

Pretty smart right!?

The thing is though, it actually does work.

Just look at these posts from people whose names were terribly misspelled, or were in some cases actually renamed...

Could this really be the greatest subliminal marketing campaign of all time, or are there just a lot of Starbucks employees who really can't spell?

You decide.
