“Next time you order coffee at Starbucks tell them your name is Bueller, then leave the store”

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) is an American classic comedy film. The student, named Ferris Bueller, skips school, and the teacher calls out “Bueller? Bueller?” to an empty chair.

At Starbucks, the staff asks for a name with each order, and then calls that name out. Some customers make up a name instead of giving a real one. “Or Bueller RT @TwopTwips: ADD HILARITY to a Starbucks coffee order by telling them your name is Fenton, then leaving the shop” was cited on Twitter on April 13, 2012. “Next time you order coffee at Starbucks tell them your name is Bueller and then leave the store” was cited on Twitter on June 2, 2012. This tweet went viral.


Wikipedia: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a 1986 American comedy film written, produced and directed by John Hughes. The film follows high school senior Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), who skips school and spends the day in downtown Chicago along with his girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) and best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck). He creatively avoids his school’s dean of students Edward Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), his resentful sister Jeannie (Jennifer Grey), and his parents. During the film, Bueller regularly breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the camera to explain to the audience his thoughts and techniques.

Cultural Impact
Other phrases from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off such as Stein’s nasally-voiced “Bueller? ...Bueller? ...Bueller?” (while taking roll call in class), and “Anyone? Anyone?” (trying to probe the students for answers) as well as Kristy Swanson’s cheerful “No problem whatsoever!” also permeated popular culture. Stein’s monotone performance actually launched his acting career.

@Jermaineblair Better yet, say your name is “Bueller” and don’t respond when they call out your name.
