It seems this ad created a huge controversy in 2001. And Abhinav Vinayakh Shankar who sent me this ad asked me to guess what's so controversial about this ad. Abhinav, the coffees are placed in the form of twin towers and there is a fly like plane and the line says "collapse into cool". I hope I'm right.

Yea, it did cause a big stir back then close to 9/11. Now it just seems like an innocuous Starbucks ad.

Yup Arvind, you hit the nail on the head.. It seems to bear an uncanny semblance to the twin towers...
