The mock store, which quietly opened Friday, is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers for sale and trendy CDs, including "Dumb Jazz Standards," displayed on the counter.

But the similarities end there. Drinks here are served in green and white "Dumb Starbucks coffee" cups, while pastries are pulled from display cases straight from their Vons' packaging.

The menu features "Dumb Iced Coffee," "Dumb Frappuccinos," and a seasonal "Wuppy Duppy Latte."

Update: Dumb Starbucks was found out to be a stunt by Nathan Fielder for the Comedy Central show "Nathan for You".
