Something I've noticed in a lot of commercials as well as TV shows, is when people are handling cups of coffee with plastic "to go" lids on them, they don't really look like they're actually handling a cup full of scalding hot liquid.

I get the sense from the way they handle it, that the cup is just a prop & is really empty.

The most recent example is one I've been seeing a lot lately for Challenge My Rate (.com), in which some coffee shop counter gal (or barista for you more so-fistee-katid types) hands the local Challenge My Rate gal (?????) a free coffee on her, for saving her all the money she saved on her insurance by going to CMR.

If you look at the way she just shoves the cup at her & at the tilted angle of the cup....



...I have my doubts that there's anything in that cup but air.




Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yeah, the way she handles it, it seems like an empty cup, like there's no weight to it.  At one point, she's almost bouncing it up and down in her hand.  But they probably spent $159 on it, and did it in one take.

If that cup was really full of coffee, it would've sloshed out from between the lid & the rim.

Probably scalded her fingers & the CMR gals boobs too.

Those plastic lids don't seal that tight....

All those morning and afternoon yak fests have a mug of coffee in front of each person - always with the show's name or logo facing the camera.

Jackie Gleason used to have his coffee cup filled with something other than coffee.  Wink

Well then all I can recommend is either a nice jar of traditional powdered instant or get yourself a little squirt bottle of this stuff....



...a mixture of chemicals & coffee flavoring that is probably about as fake as you can get.
