Late last week, a rather bizarre parody of coffee giant Starbucks popped up in Los Angeles. Dumb Starbucks turned out to a Comedy Central-sponsored joke that duplicated everything about the ubiquitous coffee retailer — except it put the word dumb in front of everything in the store, including the full menu, dumb CDS, and of course the coffee shops name. Comedian Nathan Fielder revealed the stunt in a press conference outside his Dumb Starbucks shop yesterday — and while the Starbucks corporation hadnt yet moved to shut the location down, the LA location is now a thing of the past. Within just a few hours of Fielders press conference, the LA county department of heath services had closed the door on Dumb Starbucks for operating without the proper permits.
