What would you say is your greatest weakness? But, um, for the record I guess I do need to know who you are most attracted to. Just hold it out like you'd had and then--yeah. My name is Nathan Fielder, And I graduated from one of Canada's top business schools with really good grades. And I have to admit, the view from the top was pretty nice. Something tied to an art installation.
And you heard that, or--? This camera needs to get it out here. Marx to guarantee we were protected. I'm not afraid To grab my balls Everybody Come grab my balls Don't let the checks run dry Royalties Shave tonight Let's get that beard all gone Too much stubble Let's get that hair all gone I thought the show went okay, but unfortunately, the audience didn't agree. With an underwhelming launch day, I began to feel like I put in all this effort for nothing. So out of everyone you work with, you're most attracted to me? But I couldn't have foreseen what happened next. I'm proud to announce that we'll soon be opening a second Dumb Starbucks location in Brooklyn, New York, within the next two weeks.
So I gathered the worldwide media to announce that we were expanding. But our producers were eventually able to calm him down enough to keep shooting. People file lawsuits at the drop of a hat. Things were off to an okay start. Right now, the future of Dumb Starbucks isn't clear.
Armed with a business degree and drawing from his limited life experiences, Nathan gives advice to real people and struggling businesses each week. And best of all, I now had the evidence to argue that Dumb Starbucks was just another one of my art pieces. It seemed like I still had some work ahead of me. After our employee orientation, I showed Amber and Jeremiah around the shop. There are thousands of small businesses that could use a helping hand, and I hope Fielder gets to all of them before he hangs up his jacket.
Now I'm using my knowledge to help struggling small business owners make it in this competitive world. So the easiest thing that anyone would recognize is a Stones song, a Zeppelin song. Just end on the highest of possible notes. So it was more important than ever that Elias and I take his guidance to protect ourselves. I was at risk of losing everything. But then I remembered, there was one person I knew with the knowledge to get me out of this.
This reminds me of the metal in my house. So we got to work coming up with some songs that we could perform around town. And within 24 hours, Dumb Starbucks had become a worldwide sensation. But it's good that I do know that for the record. But before leaving, I needed to be sure I was protected. I don't know if people are, you know Well, do people get what you're doing now? Its origin and owner are a mystery.
We had our first song, and after finishing the lyrics I booked us a spot at a local open mic night so we could begin building our legal defense. I mean, what do I have to lose? And with that, Dumb Starbucks was officially open for business. No, we started right here. They just said they need to get a shot of the-- an insert of the document. I I don't know actually. That's not how you establish a friendship.
Created by Nathan Fielder and Michael Koman! So the next day, I returned to the Helio Cafe with my lawyer to make things fair. And in my scramble to make things work I put myself before my fellow man, time and time again. Whatever I had done resonated with the entire world. I thought--I thought we were friends or-- But my friends don't have cameras and lights and lawyers. That looks exactly like a Starbucks. I brought some of our pastries, yeah. I had inadvertently created something that was on par with one of the world's greatest artists.
Just so you know, there's a Dumb Starbucks that's opened up down the block. Well, no, we don't want it in your pocket. I can do the training and I can source the beans. I mean, legally speaking, this store has to be categorized as an art gallery, so we don't have to abide by the same health regulations as a Starbucks would. It may have been impossible to right every wrong, but it wasn't too late to begin doing what was right. Um, Amber, do you want to go first? Jeremiah called me to say there was a line of over 15 people at the store.
