Hello everyone! It’s almost Halloween, and we figured we’d give some of the Starbucks Halloween Frappucinos in Japan a try. Boy, was it horrendous. Not the frappucinos themselves, but the recording day. Hot damn! The mic was buggy, and the sun kept blaring on our faces then hiding away, so the color was a mess. It was all a mess!
But, we still had a fun time and laughed with each other a lot. I know this will sound corny, but I’m in a corny mood, so grit your teeth and bear it. You don’t need to do big things to have a great time. We went to Akita recently and experienced some of the most amazing Onsens in the world, and we had a great time. And the next day we went to the Starbucks beside our house, shot something horrendous, and still had a great laugh, both during the filming and while editing. All of it is fun, regardless of budget. And it’s my humble hope we can inspire that in people as well.
I wouldn’t try it with these Frappucinos, though. Starbucks Japan makes some amazing drinks sometimes. Really, some of them are better than the concoctions we experienced in Starbucks Canada and America. That peach one we talked about was so good we got upset. These two drinks, though, were just kinda meh. Not terrible, but nothing to write home about. But it’s the spirit of the season, so we thought we’d give these a shot.
I’m sure we’ll feel more festive next week when we go to Disneyland. We heard that they don’t show princesses, but villains during Halloween! SQUEE! We’re super pumped. We went there for our nine year wedding anniversary (we’re at 11 years now, by the way) and we still have the hats we bought from there. We’ll be bringing them back, just in time for Halloween!
So, that’s it for this little video. We’ve got a big video we’re working on from our Onsen hopping trip to Akita; it’s a lot bigger than we had expected, and we hope we can get it up soon! Until then, if you’re looking for a few extra smiles, including our rants on millennials (even though we are millennials), check out the bloopers below:
