If you were at a coffee shop and a spider came down from the ceiling, you’d probably freak out. If you were at a coffee shop and Spider-Man came down from the ceiling, you’d still freak out, but once you collected yourself, you’d realize that something awesome just happened.
In efforts to promote the new Spider-Man: Homecoming film, Sony pulled a prank on unsuspecting customers at a New York Starbucks.
Using the movie’s stuntman, Chris Silcox, the “Web Slinger” was hanging out inside the coffee shop’s ceiling, with a harness strapped around him, ready to let him drop down and greet the customers.
No, the baristas didn’t mess up anyone’s name. When the employees at the bar yelled out, “Grande Cold Brew for Spider-Man” it was literally a grande Cold Brew for Spider-Man.
As you can imagine, people freaked out as Spidey suddenly appeared above them to grab his drink. Eventually, the New Yorkers calmed down and enjoyed the moment.
Even though there were hidden cameras carefully set up throughout the Starbucks getting crystal clear shots of the Spider-Man, rumor has it J. Jonah Jameson was still not pleased, and low-balled Peter Parker for the footage.
