The Guy Who REFUSED To Let A Flood Interrupt His Starbucks Is Now A Star.
Hong Kong has been experiencing heavy flooding and rainstorms from Super Typhoon Haima. At one point, it even got 70 millimeters (2.75 inches) of rain an hour. One particular shopping center in Chai Wan district suffered greatly.
Someone shared a photo of an old man reading a newspaper in a Starbucks coffee shop at that shopping center. This would have been an ordinary sighting if it weren't for the fact that he was sitting in the Starbucks completely unfazed during a flood.
So what does the Internet do in response? Start a photoshop battle of course.
#1. Here, we have the original photo.
Just a man enjoying his newspaper in the middle of a flood.
#2. Oh, horray, he's not alone after all.
He’s just been waiting for his friends to come fetch him.
#3. A Starbucks stand at the beach?
This is brilliant! Who doesn’t want a nice coffee to sip on while sitting in the sand?
#4. Oh no, it's a tsunami!
But that’s not a problem for our guy. He must be really good at swimming.
#5. Of course, why didn't I see it before?!
This is actually a scene from the Titanic film!
#6. Thank goodness when an apocalypse hits, we still have Starbucks.
I don’t know where else I would get my frappachinos.
#7. When the paper is more interesting than what Donald has to say.
But to be honest, anything is more interesting than him.
#8. Did someone order a submarine?
Hurry and get inside before this flood gets any worse.
#9. Be sure to read your last news before falling into Niagra Falls.
No death is as epic as this one.
#10. Wow, they have a Starbucks underwater too?
No wonder Patrick Star is always so full of energy.
#11. You know you're a badass when a shark doesn't scare you.
And you continue on with what you’re doing.
#12. Zathura: A Space Adventure
Tune in next time to find out where this Starbucks will land next.
#13. Even when he's in the midst of an explosion, he keeps his cool.
Nothing fazes this man!
#14. Might as well take a bath in the flood.
There’s even a rubber duckie here for him to play with.
#15. No ocean wave will distract this man from his newspaper.
That must be one interesting newspaper.
#16. Don't you recognize this scene from Finding Nemo?
They found Nemo and them immediately came to grab a drink from Starbucks.
#17. Proof that Trump will chase away any living soul.
Even with his cane, he’s trying his hardest to get as far away as possible.
#18. Anybody else feeling the heat in here?
Because this guy certainly isn’t.
#19. "Did somebody call me?"
“No? Alright, well since I’m here, can I get a grande pumpkin spice latte?”
#20. Apparently, zombies don't scare this man either.
Perhaps, he already is a zombie?
#21. No way, I can't believe it…
There’s a Starbucks in the girl’s bathroom at Hogwarts?
#22. It appears the Starbucks has landed in a scene of Game of Thrones.
Be careful Starbucks Uncle, white walkers are no joke!
#23. It makes sense to have a Starbucks available to Olympic swimmers.
They need the caffeine for energy!
