Watch: Starbucks ‘bouncer’ won’t let people get coffee
If you’re not on the list, then you’re not getting your morning cup of joe.
Writer and comic Jena Kingsley says there are two things that annoy her: not being able to get on a bouncer’s list at a club and not being able to get coffee in the morning. So she decided to combine the two in a social experiment that’s been posted to YouTube.
“I wanted to see what people’s reactions would be,” she said.
Kingsley set up shop outside a Starbucks in New York City and convinced people that they either needed to be on the list to get coffee or make a reservation.
Watch the video to see the hilarious responses from Starbucks-starved New Yorkers.
“In all of my pranks, or social experiments I have been amazed with how cooperative New Yorkers are,” Kingsley said. “They are unfazed and I couldn’t believe how many people got in line.”
