Starbucks customers were left red-faced after a TikToker explained how their drive-thru system is more revealing than they thought.

Or so we thought because it turns out that Starbucks has got their eyes on everything, even you in your Marvel pajamas at the drive-thru.

Other users have substantiated the TikTok creator’s claims too, as this camera system exists at most drive-thru’s: “The amount of people who don’t know a good percent of drive-thru’s have cameras like this AND that we can hear you the second you pull up.”
