All I could think of was how more appropriate it would be to have a voice-over by Randall (warning, audio NSFW) to reflect a different perspective on this.

I'm glad I wasn't drinking coffee at the time because I would have accidentally spat it all over my computer from the laugh they gave me when they claimed to be the pinnacle of specialty coffee.
