Starbucks Relativity Optical Illusion


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!!!

  • ice

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

  • any mouse

    It always seemed like they were on every corner!

  • 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.

  • Shawn

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

  • adam

    Let it go marketing department…

  • Anusha

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

  • Raven

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

  • Detective Kitty

    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.

  • Ramya

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

  • Nelliedean

    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!

  • Manwell Hung

    I’m going to let you finish, but…

  • Wise Person

    Keep on keepin on good job Mate

    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.

  • fdf

    it’ll be hard to drink coffee upsidedown


    This is what coffee does to you.

  • charlotte quarrier

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

  • Wolfman2200

    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!!

  • Jessy

    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.

  • nerj

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

  • dw

  • Darkfrair

  • ferret
