SNL Starbucks Verismo
This Saturday Night Live Digital Short is a great little critique of design absurdity and malfunction. The attention to dysfunctional details across the Starbuck’s experience, i.e. condiments table, is excellent. And the line extension with a “larger, non-functioning machine” is genius. It’s funny, if also pretty racist in a 1980′s kind of way. Speaking of 1980′s, I like the nod to Knight Rider— note that the Verismo’s illuminated voice indicator is taken from KIT.
