Video: SNL commercial parody mocks Starbucks, careless baristason January 21, 2013 @ 8:44 am (Updated: 11:49 am - 1/21/13 )
Starbucks boasted about it's new brew-at-home Verismo system heading into the holidays. It promised to bring us an at-home version of the Starbucks coffee we've found ourselves addictively consuming for the past 30 years or so.
The writers at Saturday Night Live were unimpressed. Not necessarily with the machine, but with their service at Starbucks in general.
They used their weekly parody commercial segment to take aim at the Verismo, and the baristas that get on our nerves the most.
