Customers at a New York City Starbucks were denied their morning coffee recently by a comedian posing as a bouncer.
Prankster Jena Kinglsey stood outside the coffee shop with a clipboard in hand, asking customers if they were “on the list.”
Kingsley compared the scenario to Apple’s Genius Bar, where you need to make an appointment, or a nightclub. She even told a couple guys they couldn’t go in unless they brought some girls with them.
Employees at the Starbucks were not impressed with her joke and asked her to leave, especially after she drove away several customers. She subsequently broke down in “tears” because her entrepreneurial dream had been shattered.
