Starbucks Barista Writes The Most Awesome Song - And Gets Fired! (Video)

Barista Chrissizle is just a talented guy pumping out venti lattes for rent money. So he took that talent and wrote the most awesome Starbucks song ever!

interest because we don't have a spare seven bucks until payday.

hot-doppio-skim-caramel-latte with whipped cream instead of foam, the

barista pours whatever shit he wants into the cup - and we never even

realized...until we heard this song and the dark heart of a barista was

finally revealed to us.
