Baristas Are Terrible Therapists, Warns This Hilarious Ad for Online Counseling

From the HelloFlo writers


If you're relying on your local barista to talk you through life's challenges, stop right now, says this amusing video for a text/video-chat counseling service called In Your Corner.

The spot was written and directed by Pete Marquis and Jamie McCelland, who are perhaps best known for making HelloFlo's "Camp Gyno" and "First Moon Party" ads. It features a barista named Theresa, who is an amateur advice-dispensing "baristapist"—a portmanteau combining barista and therapist.

To say Theresa is an inept counselor is putting it mildly.
