That coffee cup that made its way onto the latest “Game of Thrones” episode has added up to an astounding $2.3 billion in free advertisement for Starbucks.
Do you want to know the funny thing about all this? The cup that made its way into the scene wasn’t even a Starbucks cup!
The label couldn’t even be seen, but once fans believed they saw the green logo on the cup the story took off on its own.
The cup has been edited out of the scene, but the talk of the Starbucks cup is still talked about along with the everything else from the episode.
Did you think the coffee cup was from Starbucks? When you first saw the episode did you spot the coffee cup?
TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink.— Starbucks Coffee (@Starbucks) May 6, 2019
The white paper Starbucks cup that launched a thousand tweets has already been recycled from Sunday's GoT episode – but not before giving Starbucks a billion-dollar shot of free advertising. https://t.co/rTSsQIMnPO— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) May 8, 2019
