GS in a Starbucks paint job?

I was wondering if anyone had ever done a GS painted in Starbucks corporate livery? I'm talking a big GS done up as though it was sponsored by Starbucks, the way the old Suzuki "Pepsi" bikes were:


I think it'd be a great self-effacing in joke. Just wondered if anyone had heard of this before, or better still, had photos of one done like this?

If you're going to paint a bike with the Starbucks logo at least use the old one with boobs.
