A Starbucks ad released Wednesday features drag queens Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio.

Delano and Del Rio competed for the coveted title of "America's next drag superstar" on the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In the 60-second spot, an under-caffeinated Delano is looking for a pick-me-up to help her with a stressful schedule when she spots a Starbucks.

She's making good progress reaching the counter by cutting ahead of a couple of people, when a cranky Del Rio denies her.

"Listen honey, your little cutesy, furry thing is not going to work with me," Del Rio snaps.

Just as it looks as if the pair are about to do battle, the smiling barista hands them both their beverages. 

The spot, titled Coffee Frenemies, was developed in partnership with Canadian LGBT network OUTtv.
