The week's best of the internet

The best images, videos, and memes to emerge from the great digital playground — from #StarbucksDrakeHands to an elaborate psionic prank

1. #StarbucksDrakeHands
A young woman was at a coffee shop, when the barista reportedly asked for her number. She handed it over.

The next day, she received a text from him. It contained this video:

Creepy? You bet. She showed it to a friend, who then posted it to Instagram. People started copying it.

Somewhere along the way, someone added a hashtag: #StarbucksDrakeHands

And, well, that's how we got here. (via Instagram)

2. Coffee shop pranks customers with scary telekinesis stunt
This is a pretty crazy promo for the new Carrie movie. Basically, a young woman has a freakout in a Manhattan coffee shop, and unleashes her telekinetic powers in a fit of rage.

It's all staged. But the fear is real.
