We figured it out.. or so we think we did :0)
Snapchat is launching their Spectacles Snapbot vending machines in every location associated with a ROSE!!
Don’t believe us.. check out our Tweets…
UPDATE!! Thanks to the homey @GolfGrouch on Twitter we are now thinking the “ROSE” association is because of this video per Wikipedia.. being filmed at Santa Monica Pier and shows the Playland Arcade where the Snapbot was placed there..
Update: Nov 20th, 2016 Snapchat just place the next Spectacles Snapbot at the Grand Canyon close to a city called Meadview, AZ which has a “Rose” road.
So there you have it.. If you want to know where to look in a place near you scope place with either “ROSE” in the street name, business name, or landmark.
And here is a link to their map to check out times of launch.
Pop Up Store NY Update.
No more Snapbot out in the wild and more Spectacles pop up stores to come? but a Spectacles Store on 5 E. 59th st. New York, NY 10022 surrounded by ROSES!!! again..
Updated: November, 23rd, 2016
Well well well, another Snapbot in Santa Monica… another ROSE location!!!
Updated, November 26th, 2016.. The Snapchat Spectacles Snapbot was placed at Florida State University today.. which the main entrance has a Cherokee Rose..
Update: November 27th, 2016 the next Snapbot has landed at the Grove in Los Angeles by 3 different Rose Associations..
And again with Miranda Kerr spotted Flower Shopping!
Think I’m on to something here..
Update: December 1st, 2016 – Snapbot is now at the OUE Skyspace Los Angeles right off 5th & Flower Street.. YES, flower street..
Maybe it’s not just about Roses.. and its about Evan’s love for flowers in general as pointed out in the GQ story and Daily Mail article above where Evan and Miranda are flower shopping together.. The Rose has been very prevalant with the other Snapbot locations. But other than a “Rose” Law Firm not so much this time.
Also, Miranda Kerr shared this instagram post for Thanksgiving with a floral arrangement.

Update December 3rd, 2016.. Snapbot has landed at Six Flags Magic Mountain next to Hilton “GARDEN” Inn..
And the “flower, Rose, association” continues..
Other observations with all of these Snapbot launches are…
- Flower/Rose Association (Evan & Miranda love flowers) and Snapchat HQ is down the street from Rose Ave in Venice Beach
- They have been launching them at or close to college campuses..
- They have been launching them in places that are amazing to use their product (Grand Canynon, Blue Whale, Big Sur, Skyspace Los Angeles..)
- Maybe there is an opportunity for companies, events, or places like a Six Flags Magic Mountain can pay to have snapbots in their locations in the future
Update December 4th, 2016 Snapchat’s Snapbot was in Los Angeles for the 4th straight time and this time it was by the Hollywood Sign and again close to Roses and Flowers!
December 7th Update Spectacles Snapbot lands in Altoona, Pennsylvania by Penn State
And as always there is a Rose, Flower combo with a little college atmosphere thrown in this time..
Update: December 9th, 2016 Spectacles Snapbot is in Breckenridge, CO and close to “roses” and flowers again in a very unique ski town.
Ok we are done tracking Snapchat’s Vending machine Snapbot for Spectacles.
And who knows if it really was following a pattern of Roses or Flowers or not but it was fun while it lasted. There no longer are lines in the New York City popup store and this Snapbot marketing strategy was great but is now beginning to fade.
