We look forward to November for many reasons, and one of them is the Starbucks holiday cup. That’s because Starbucks lets us know that it’s finally okay to start listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” on repeat from now until December 24th. In case you all forgot, last year the holiday cups started a controversy because they weren’t Christmas-y enough, and this year Starbucks was like, fuck it, let’s get rid of them altogether.
So because everyone whined about the basic red cups last year, this year’s cup went super hipster with an original drawing from a Seattle artist. It’s covered in sketches of people, but more importantly, it’s green.

I mean, green is still a Christmas color, so anyone who’s crying about it honestly has too much time on their hands. Still, it’s not exactly a great design. The pictures of people look like a college campus is trying too hard to show you they’re diverse, but you know that none of the people in the brochure are actually friends.
The idea of the cup is that all the people are drawn using one continuous line, which to us sounds like more hipster bullshit. When you’re a corporation called Starbucks, you don’t get to pretend you’re a community coffee shop. Literally the word “Bucks” is in your name.
