A Starbucks ad released Wednesday
features drag queens Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio.
Delano and Del Rio competed for the
coveted title of “America's next drag superstar” on the sixth
season of RuPaul's Drag Race.
In the 60-second spot, an
under-caffeinated Delano is looking for a pick-me-up to help her with
a stressful schedule when she spots a Starbucks.
She's making good progress reaching the
counter by cutting ahead of a couple of people, when a cranky Del Rio
“Listen honey, your little cutesy,
furry thing is not going to work with me,” Del Rio snaps.
Just as it looks as if the pair are
about to do battle, the smiling barista hands them both their
beverages. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit

The spot, titled Coffee Frenemies,
was developed in partnership with Canadian LGBT network OUTtv.
