Starbucks Actually Penned Poem About K-Pop Group BTS & It’s Going Viral!

By  | 

By now, you should understand the power of BTS (formerly known as Bangtan Boys a.k.a. Bulletproof Boy Scouts a.k.a. Beyond the Scene a.k.a. Bangtan Sonyeondan) — all of these celebrities sure do. Sure, they’ve got some haterseff you, Boy George! — but, for the most part, everyone’s a fan… including your favorite American coffee company, Starbucks!

Earlier this week, the coffeehouse chain addressed a tweet written by the Twitter user @SugasHero that reads, “If these 7 heavenly handsome mens [sic] were baristas in my coffee shop or in starbucks or in any other coffee shops: #THOSFansBTS20M #KCA #FavGlobalMusicBTS @BTS_twt,” followed by a GIF of the seven-member South Korean boy band bowing in unison:


Though the official Starbucks Twitter account wasn’t tagged, the company still got wind of the note and responded with the most epic poem about the K-Pop group:

A dash of Suga
A cup of Tae
Kookie for dessert
The full DNA

A heart so waRM
Jin & Chim so sweet
We JHope your day
Is made with this tweet


For those not in the know about all things BTS, the poem contains all of the band members’ names, plus the lead single off the troupe’s Love Yourself: Her album:

A dash of Suga
A cup of Tae (a.k.a. V)
Kookie (a.k.a. Jungkook) for dessert
The full DNA (the name of the group’s single)

A heart so waRM
Jin & Chim (a.k.a. Jimin) so sweet
We JHope your day
Is made with this tweet

Needless to say, the Internet was SHOOK. While Starbucks’ tweets may receive a couple hundred retweets there, and maybe even a few thousand likes there, the poem — which can only be seen if you click Tweets & replies — currently has a whopping 47 THOUSAND retweets and nearly 70 THOUSAND likes! How crazy is that?!

Well played, Starbucks! Who needs advertising when you’ve got a killer poet on your team?
