I have been reading today that there was a Starbucks cup, which has since been edited out, on the last episode of Game of Thrones. The internet has been somewhat buzzing about the appearance of a Starbucks cup (in my humble opinion it looks as if it would be a 16oz Grande hot drink), which appears in front of “The Mother of Dragsons” Deanerys Targaryan.
This begs the question, which hot drink was it? My opinion is that if it was Deanerys’s, it would be one of the following:
Grande Caramel Machiatto
Grande Hot Mocha
Grande Vanilla Latte — My personal pick for the drink of choice for Deanerys Targaryan. I think she would go for a 16oz hot vanilla latte……extra hot of course.
As opposed to many websites including those cited in this article I do not believe this has translated into billions of dollars in free advertising though. How could it? Who doesn’t know that Starbucks does not exist and will now want a cup of Starbucks coffee because of this error? Just my opinion though.
Maybe, we’ll see a surprise ending….with a caramel machiatto ending up on the Iron Throne?
