When Starbucks unveiled the Unicorn Frappuccino in 2017, the reviews weren't necessarily favorable. But it was a weird enough idea that people tried it anyway. Especially since it would only be available for a limited time.
On Twitter, Laylah explained things further. The drink is just some Gatorade she put into a Starbucks cup. Apparently, her friends weren't thrown off by the ridiculousness of the name "Frappajappajooza." They thought it was real.
If Laylah's prank is successful, then people will go into a Starbucks asking for it for real. Then the trouble will start. Maybe baristas should have a printout of Laylah's tweet posted at the counter, just in case.
However, one barista said she didn't know if being asked for this drink would be amusing or strictly anger-inducing. Although it's unclear how someone could feel anger when hearing someone say out loud the word "Frappajappajooza."
This Twitter user had the solution for baristas dealing with this problem. If someone asks for a Frappajappajooza, simply making them one with whatever random ingredients you want. It's the perfect way to take the joke to the next level.
Another way a Frappajappajooza request could play out might be something like this. This transaction also unveiled something else about the Frappajappajooza. And that's the fact that "frappajappa" can also be used as a prefix.
As seen here, "frappajappa" can be used as a prefix before the words "dying," "sorry," and "forgive you." Or just about any other word in the English language. Next time you want to give a word some extra zing, give it a shot!
With all the publicity surrounding Laylah's prank, will Starbucks get in on the action? No word on that yet, but hopefully they'll pay Laylah first for use of the Frappajappajooza name. But what would actually be in that beverage?
The Frappajappajooza reminded one person of this exchange from The Office. While the Frappajappajooza is Laylah's cup was iced, perhaps a hot version of the drink could also be a big seller. Only one way to find out!
No matter if Starbucks steals the Frappajappajooza or not, Laylah has truly created something special. Just remember, the drink isn't actually real. But if you have a Starbucks cup and some Gatorade lying around, you can always make your own.
