Have you seen the latest McCafe commercials? I honestly think they’re ok. Apparently, though, some people think otherwise. They have taken offense at the commercials – supposedly, the commercials are treating people like “idiots.” I can see where this kind of thinking is coming from but I can also see why the ads were made that way. Take a look at one of them.
Anyway, going back to the rationale behind the ads. We have to admit, some people go to Starbucks and hang out there but they didn’t really like coffee in the first place. They have become victim to the coffee culture and Starbucks is the place to be when it comes to coffee. I can name countless people who claim to be Starbucks fans but never really drank coffee before Starbucks became “in.”
So, are people who go to Starbucks better than others? Perhaps. Then again, perhaps not. I think it is a matter of really liking the coffee. So wherever you get your coffee from, it should not really matter as long as you actually go for the drink and not for anything else. What say you?
