You may or may not have fallen victim to it yourself, but Starbucks has quite the reputation for its employees’ interesting spelling techniques.

But now a new viral video is suggesting that Starbucks are actually misspelling your name on purpose, and for a very clever reason.

Because every time someone gets a venti chai mocha latte with a funny version of their name, they tend to post a photo of that Starbucks logo-emblazoned cup straight to social media.

And that means free advertising for the company with very, very little effort. 

Clever, huh?

It is, of course, just a theory though, so it could just be us not speaking very clearly/ someone not hearing us properly/ the off-chance that someone hasn’t heard the name Amy before.

But we kind of prefer the first reason.
