Dumb Starbucks explained on Comedy Central


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dumb Starbucks is coming back, but only on TV.

The comic who came up with the fake-store concept will discuss its origins and aftermath on next Tuesday’s episode of Comedy Central’s “Nathan for You.”

Star Nathan Fielder said the shop was a parody about the power of corporate branding that exceeded his expectations and ended up provoking discussion about how people consume art.
