Starbucks???

Found on Facebook. Is it real or another hoax? My feeling is that it's faux, but I hope I'm wrong.

According to Amclicks it is real and apparently 1 of 2...
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

I don't understand what it's supposed to be representing. I've never seen a barista dressed like that.

Starbucks Reserve is their 'up market' brand (shown in the background pic) so maybe their staff wear that uniform - and if its one of two the other one could be a standard green uniform.

I've actually only seen the Reserve Brand in China, so maybe they don't exist in Europe?

The fact that its a bit obscure makes me think it's more likely to be real.

I don't know what this means- are the figures being released on 7th, 14th 21st and 28th January? In Japan? Korea?
