Todd and I ran into delightful Gay Daily Hot blogger and Porn Director Jasun Mark on line for Dumb Starbucks the other day…what the fuck is Dumb Starbucks you might ask? We weren’t sure but we heard there was free coffee and thought it might be some anti corporate art piece so we checked it out. I’ll let Jasun finish the tale…
“Randomly heard from my friends on Facebook about this “parody” coffee shop about 5 minutes from my house in Silverlake. It’s called “Dumb Starbucks.” Everyone was talking about it, trying to figure out just what it was, trying to find out the story behind it. I decided to come down and check it out myself. When I first saw how long the line up was, I almost bailed (two hours for a free cup of coffee is more than I really have time for) but then I saw Jonny “Gay Pimp” MacGovern in line and I hopped in line and said “hi.”
We were all very aware that it was probably part of a promotional campaign for something.. the general consensus was that it was Jim Carrey promoting the new Dumb and Dumber movie. But when something that the whole world is talking about is happening a short trip from your house… why not c?
We waited forever and it wasn’t Jim Carey it was some Comedy Central show promo **wompwomp** but we GOT THE CUP! Check out our dumb lil’ LA adventure with Jasun in the video below:
