Lightning Powered

Tesla is terrific. Kudos on this design.

While anything with Tesla is awesome, I am curious what Starbuck’s has to do with this?

Some people are powered by Starbucks. Tesla is powered by lightning. Or some such bullpuckey as that.

I think Patrickspens is making mostly a visual pun here with the Tesla coils in the background standing in for the double mermaid tail in the original logo. Furthermore, the term “Lightning Powered” is a metaphor for a caffeine high. Just my interpretation, but I’m sure Patrickspens can elaborate if need be.

Tesla rules, Edison drools.
