So, I’m a prophet now? Hehe, really liked that particular comment in my previous post :) Seems we have reached a point, where all those optical illusion billboard ads start to repeat themselves. Same goes for other types of illusions too. But as you see, I try to reduce the effect by posting only the most attractive ones. Today’s example is a homage to Escher’s Relativity; Starbucks used it in a way to promote their coffee brand. It caught my attention, I admit… But Beyonce Henry Lim had the best Relativity homage ever!!!

    the illusion is right, starbucks is ubiquitous (unfortunately). coffee is YUCK! :P

    It always seemed like they were on every corner!

  11. Did Star Bucks actually make this picture? It’s pretty horrible to be honest. The perspective for the signs and the interiors for the shops are all wrong for the most part. Cool idea though, but poorly done.

    Starbucks = crap
    Now put Dunkin Donuts in there and you’ve got something.

  14. Anusha says:

    This is so accurate, Starbucks are frickin’ everywhere even next to each other!

  15. Raven says:

    I have an even harder time getting my mind around this one compared to the original. Way to go!

  16. Detective Kitty says:

    it really does make you feel that starbucks is there for you…lol but i also feel kind of trapped when looking at it which is a negative effect for them.

  17. Ramya says:

    Dunno which shop to chose for a cup of coffeeeee…………. :P

  18. Nelliedean says:

    Don’t like it. Sorry. Starbucks always burn the milk and where do they get their beans? Rubbish rubbish.

    Costa Coffee is the way to go when you want an overpriced hot drink!

  21. Care Bear says:

    Starbucks’ coffee is okay if you chew it really well. On these stairs there could be a problem with spillage. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad thing.

  22. fdf says:

    it’ll be hard to drink coffee upsidedown

  23. ANONOMOUS says:

    This is what coffee does to you.

  24. charlotte quarrier says:

    this is awsome i would love to be able to walk upside down lol

  25. Wolfman2200 says:

    Oh please. You can do the same thing with a 7-11, or a McDonalds. But the worst thing is… it’s still a rip off of the original. Same thing, just themed differently.

    If I was a copyright lawyer, I’d be reviewing with the decendants of Escher, and talking about a lawsuit against Starbucks. Talk about a goldmine! Cha-Ching!!

  26. Jessy says:

    just be careful as not to spill your coffee while walking up and down those stairs. got migraine? caffeine intake will do more good than harm.

  27. nerj says:

    this is what the Starbucks’ coffee ads really wants to convey, when you drink their coffee, you’ll get DDDDIIIZZZZZZZZYYY!!!!???

  28. dw says:

    looks photoshopped

  29. Darkfrair says:

    how many times is the Starbucks logo shown in this?

  30. ferret says:

    who agrees that if they went to that star bucks that they would get lost?
