MANILA, Philippines -- Dumb Macchiatto, anyone? Welcome to Dumb Starbucks.
No, this is not from a comedy set. It is a real coffee shop in Los Angeles, California.
Its owner, comedian Nathan Fielder, thought it would be fun to set up a coffee shop mocking the popular coffee shop chain.
But not everybody was amused. Los Angeles county inspectors shut it down on Monday, February 10, two days after it opened.
To some, it was fun while it lasted. But to the Los Angeles authorities and the folks running the real deal, it was good riddance.
Check out this quick tour of the short-lived coffee shop.
