Starbucks' "It's Pumpkin Spice Latte Time: Who's not excited?"

So I've decide to post an entry on a Starbucks ad while sitting at Starbucks sipping on a Nonfat Chai Tea Latte.

This ad by Wexley School for Girls (actually an ad agency, not a school) is promoting the return of the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. The spot features a young girl by the Starbucks sugar table who is bombarded with dialogue by a seriously creepy barista named Charles. There's a little twist though... turns out Charles isn't actually employed by Starbucks.. he's just a big fan.

So the commercial is a little funny, but will it actually make people want a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Not sure. I think I'll stick with my Chai Tea Latte.
