looks like they're some "comedy" group trying to make a video to make fun of hipsters or some shit.

Did that guitarist say his name was "Hummus"?

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 2:56 PM

I guess the shamelessly predictable answers from the interviewees were pretty funny. The interviewer probably should have waited until OTHER people told him he was funny before pursuing this.

Admittedly, the incorporation of the logos (BV) was kinda clever.

And the intro is being deposited right into the spank bank.

I take a backseat to no one in my mocking of hipsters, but that was pretty weak. It seemed like it tried to do too many things and ended up succeeding at none of them.

Hipsters should be made fun of until fucking forever. Are you trying to be ironic by reducing it to something trendy which has exceeded its sell-by date?

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 3:48 PM

I don't necessarily think I would like to take the time to personally punch the interviewer in the face. But would I like to SEE the interviewer punched in the face by someone else? The answer to that is definitely YES.

you guys actually seem like you're mad that hipsters are getting made fun of. it's almost like you're defending them and could possibly even proudly call yourselves 'hipsters'. and trust me, the guys doing the interview are definitely not hipsters by any standards. go watch their other videos you twinks.

who do these guys think they are? anyone who thinks this is funny is completely out of touch. they are obviously homophobic women haters if you look at their other videos, they are disgusting and make fun of abused children. just another group who wants to 'make it big' on the backs of people with true originality

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 4:40 PM

"what's a hipster"

A young person who is into current music and fashion. For some reason, people want to kill them.

I think what people actually hate though, are the "pseudo-hipsters". People who only dress like actual hipsters and don't really know anything about music or fashion.

This seems to be a rip-off of an Australian video which was made a few weeks ago. When there was an uproar about it, the video was removed, and then it was reposted by someone else. Here's the video, compare the two to your hearts content: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTOzfG78yCo

i'm still trying to figure out how much truth there is in their mission statement, but i loved this part: "We’re all around 25 years old, all jobless in Rhode Island, and shooting with maybe $500 in camera equipment." and they're making fun of artist kids in brooklyn. give me a break.

i'm also upset that they threw in adult swim. [as] is not a hipster thing at all. what did [as] do to get hate? lame.

can't you see how this "hipster" issue, while totally and completely lacking in any real substance, is still worth making videos about?

these are a few guys making videos out of their crummy apartment for years, mostly hit-and-miss, but completely off the radar, and then by "insulting" certain members of a totally self-aware audience whose approval and attention they are actually seeking, they wind up with pretty decent press coverage within hours? it's your reactions to the videos that actually prove that poking fun at hipsters is still worthwhile

I have a question, are punks, hippies, goths, beatniks, metalheads hipster? All of those sub cultures are based on elitism in a sense.

How does someone reading BV have the gall to call someone else a hipster? You're reading an indie based music blog and you're calling someone else a hipster? Someone less hip than you would probably feel the same way about you.

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 7:07 PM

No, because these people come together due to a common like in something, or similar ideals, even if they don't actually get together and have 'goth parties', they recognize their own.

Hipsters come together because no one else likes them and they can't be alone.

Posted by Double Assed Chaps | July 3, 2011 7:07 PM

@7:07 if "hipsters" don't have a common like in something how do you know who to hate? I know what you mean by hipster, you mean people that are indie and like indie culture. These people do share common values, they value independent thought, art, caring for animals by staying away from meat or factory produced foods, progressive etc so what's the difference. Note that all of these values are practically the same things that punk rockers believe in. DIY etc.

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 7:13 PM

@7:07 I mean it's just funny to me that you as a more mainstream individual probably wouldn't approach a punk rocker in the 80's or 90's to tell them that you thought they were pretentious for only liking non "mainstream" bands. Is the difference that you know said punk rocker would probably beat you up but "hipsters" look like easy targets?

Most people - and certainly most normal people - do not define themselves by their musical tastes. As much as I fucking hate the word "hip," one can most certainly be that as regards music, film and other artistic mediums without adopting a myriad of sub-moronic cultural markers the way hipsters do.

Perhaps I orchestrated myself poorly, what I meant, was:

@7:23 for someone to get angry about "being made fun of" that person would actually have to value you're opinion first. I'm not sure if you've noticed but these videos have been around for years, almost a decade so I think you can be sure than almost no one values your opinion. Believe me I'm not angry, it is annoying though that your kind keeps letting people that don't care know what's on your mind. Most would think you'd have gone away by now, it's obvious that no one cares about what you think.

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 7:34 PM

Hipster's are self righteous. Hipster's are the new popular kids that you thought you were done with when you graduated high school.

Ok. Being a hipster isn't about liking indie culture, or fashion and art or existentialism or whatever. A person is a hipster when they believe that they are better than anyone else because of their beliefs and/or tastes. A person is a hipster when they disregard actual artistic or entertainment value in order to "be cool." A person is a hipster when they put image before actual worth.

Independent art and music and vintage clothes are fucking awesome! Expressing distaste for those who don't do the same thing as you is not.

Hipsters constantly rant about individuality and being different, and how they are more individual and different than you. But the funny thing is how large of a dogma they are really a part of. That is the essence of Hipster.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtPKDHdS5bM

This link is to a song that explains Hipsterdom and its awfulness perfectly.

What is hilarious is that most of you will scoff at the song when you see how generally accepted and popular it is.

Posted by Single Ass Chaps | July 3, 2011 7:39 PM

is that the lead singer of thee oh sees?

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 7:57 PM

@7:34 that makes sense but how do you know who really likes what they are into and those that just do it for show? It seems you are guilty of the very thing you accuse others of. If someone's wearing something specific, you deem them a "hipster" which by your definition is not their like of indie music or art but of their pseudo like of indie music and art? Right? By judging someone based on the way that they look without knowing them you are guilty of what you accuse others of doing.

Just to be sure though, there are tons of people who think they are better than others due to their particular taste. It's not that they think they're better, they just prefer what they like the most as all people do and they also prefer to be around others that feel the same way ... all people do this. I was at warped tour a while back when it still had some credibility and NOFX was playing, they had the crowd boo the band on the other stage, it was Yellowcard, and berated their fans as consisting of nothing but teenage girls. If that isn't condescending I don't know what is. They're punk and vegan, do you hate them? My point is that your disapproval of elitism seems to be selective.

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 7:58 PM

I could really care less about hipsters insofar as what they think about others. The problem is their subsidized lifestyle that raises costs for working folks who aren't getting money from parents, or didn't get paid through expensive colleges.

Posted by ananamanagrama | July 3, 2011 8:06 PM

There's also an innate VIBE you get when you encounter a hipster. You can just tell that they're a fake hipster and don't legitimately have any passion for, ________ or whatever.

I know it sounds very puesdo-logic, but I think it just comes from years of experience with the type, and you learn to recognize them straight off. Then tend to use jargon (in the form of slang) to ostracize outsiders, use the word 'boho'. They don't have an actual job to pay for their habits, and a lot of other subtle clues that aren't coming to mind.

I have nothing against real hipsters that do what they want and do so because they like it. If someone were to judge them on said tastes, they wouldn't care. I even consider myself to be one. I'm using the word 'hipster' in a very loose sense because well, there isn't a name as far as I know for the fake kind of hipster.

Posted by Single Ass Chaps | July 3, 2011 8:12 PM

Hipsterism is a perverse oxymoronic blend of warmed-over Marxism and naked consumerism. That's what makes it so bizarre and distasteful.

good lord - who EDITED this video? it looks like it was from an 8th grade a/v club.

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2011 8:16 PM

@8:12 haha yeah I've met someone like that once. I was standing outside of a music venue once after getting there early for some tickets and was having a conversation with someone that was also there for early tickets. This dude purchased tickets for his friend that soon showed up with that self satisfied look on his face and a slight smirk.

Apparently purchasing tickets through ticketmaster was too mainstream for him because he proceeded to make an indier than thou comment about someone who stated they got tickets through ticketmaster. What he didn't know is that tickets for the show weren't available through ticketfly because the band that was playing is fairly big in the indie world, TV on the Radio, so I assume he must have just heard about them ... such a faker. He commented on the recent Beach House show at Webster Hall and I said that I was there and that it was a good show but apparently I didn't look indie enough for him so he gave me a condescending look and continued talking to his friend.

You shouldn't judge all people that like indie music or that look indie because of people like this guy, people like him are fakers that don't care about music at all. They just care about being indie. Most people that you would consider hipster aren't like that. You'd probably call me a hipster but I can't stand people like the one described above. They're like those punk rock hot topic posers.

Posted by Gwop Pop | July 3, 2011 8:31 PM

It just irritates me that the wannabe hipsters give the real hipsters a bad name. SO unfair. Its like they saw how everyone liked hipsters, and tried to imitate them, and in doing so, COMPLETELY lost what makes everyone LIKE real hipsters. They're individuals. They're 'cool' in their own way but not brash about it or cool in the 'leather jacket while smoking a cig sense.

They literally took the individuality, out of being an individual; and dirtied the good name of real hipsters in one horrid stroke of imitation.

So, Dear Wannabe Hipsters: Please pick someone else to imitate, or at least give yourselves a different name so people can differentiate between the two. You can't have hipster though we had it first and I still kinda like it as a word, even though you fucked it over.

-Signed,
The Real Hipsters.

Posted by afsfdasf | July 3, 2011 4:16 PM

So it looks like a few paid actors in the little video who are unfunny Cave and Creek "comedian" morons or wanna be UCB clones decided to do what they can only do: go after the easy targets like the neu Williamsburg tight pants hipster because they surely cant come up with humor that doesn't make fun something else.
Sort seems ironic when you interview these few real flake hipster kids and your probably as privileged as the Beacons closet kids.

And its been done for 10 years on You Tube and from wanna be writer comedian trust funders or middle class luke warm hip people who had their college paid for and then some. You know the kind who probably listens to the Pixies and Stone Temple Pilots like the bearded guy doing the interviews.

Did 11:42 PM actually call this video comedy and use the term"winning"?
Seems like the broad brushing used for the groundbreaking "comedy" is again old hat and will maybe get you a job eventually making AT& T commercials at best.

Nevertheless the hipsters that are noticeable being interviewed not part of the crazy wacky improv unoriginal actors team deserve a bit of crap for their hair, tight pants, etc. but this whole Queens, Park Slope, Dumbo contingent striving to be TV comedy writers that end up pathetically doing commercials or low level jobs at Silver Cup are a sad bunch indeed who worship SNL people and Galifinakis. And stop trying to grow beards like him. You guys stand out as bad as the hipsters from Beacons Buffalo shops you talk about all the time.

Isnt there endless amounts of UCB kids making online videos who have done this same thing hundreds of times? Ive ran across a lot of them and their links to resumes are you guessed it:
Commercials, advertising, and improv. How can hundreds of people or thousands of them but have it be considered funny or original?

Cave and Creek UCB clones are about as funny as flaky Beacons closet employees.

Holy shit. There's no such thing as a fucking "wannabe hipster!"

Hipsters go as far against the mainstream as they possibly can, intentionally, while remaining self important/righteous/satisfied. God damn it. Someone who is a "wannabe hipster" is just the fucking epitome of hipster.

If you are intentionally counterculture and talk about it all the time, you're a piece of shit. You're a hipster. If you think you are better than someone because you started a trend or were there right when a trend started, you're a piece of shit. You're also a hipster.

Basically, if you're a hipster, you are a piece of shit as well. In every way possible. You are counter productive to consideration and selflessness everywhere.

You're spoiled, jaded from highschool, and trying so hard to feel special.

Did that interviewer actually use the words "colored people"? Idiot!
July 3, 2011 3:44 PM

Yes he did and mister Miller Genuine draft probably lives in a gentrified monoculture neighborhood.

A gentrified monoculture neighborhood? Oh noes!!! I enjoyed my days in a multicultural neighborhood. Couldn't walk a block without a black person hitting me up for a cigarette. My girlfriend couldn't walk by a Puerto Rican dude without getting kissy noises. Couldn't get a full night's sleep without some idiot white boy's car alarm going off. I learned much in those heady days of diversity, and now I'm the most interesting man in the world.

Wow, you guys really got your panties in a bunch over this. You're all a just one big fucking joke, get over it.

You know what pisses me off? Mumford and Sons.

I make fun of hipsters to veil my insecurities and ambiguous sexuality.

If there are things certainly worse than hipsters, it's people who are too cool for hipsters. So backwards and self loathing it's disgusting.

Oh, and this video would've been better if they interviewed all these people who hate hipsters and listen to Ninjasonik and are ironic-wigger and like Adult Swim and have tumblrs. there should be a word for these anti-hipster types, maybe wipsters? or maybe not.

Hipsters making fun of hipsters. Makes no sense. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. sucks. Stupid name too. I'm sure it's ironic.

Dear 1:59,

This comment of yours: "Cave and Creek UCB clones are about as funny as flaky Beacons closet employees."

Let me break this shit down for you nice 'n' easy like since it seems as if you may be ... er, a bit slow on the ol' uptake.

It should read Beacon's Closet. You need to throw a 's to show that the Closet is owned by Beacon. And, you need to put a big C at the front of Closet as that's part of the name of the store along with Beacon.

How are we doing? OK? Good. Now don't fucking make that third grafe mistake again. Ass.

I see you cant address the reality of the clones at these "comedy" places so you go for typo's.
Just like a pathetic entertainment whore or apathetic fool oblivious to the world around them because you worship yourself. Very similar to hipsters.

Cave and Creek UCB clones are about as funny as flaky Beacon's Closet employees. We all got the point and you derivative uncreative comedian's shits with ironic shirts are as sheepish as the the dumb hipsters you interviewed and the paid actor's who are again apart of your boring comedy troupe.


And I see the 5:11 PM is most definitely a third rate fruitless Cave and Creek comedian or a striving commercial advertiser.

You understand 5:11 PM you little lemming.
Now go and pretend your an important person as you hand out PBR'S to kids at UCB your trying to convince that your trite improv is worth more than your phony smile.

Mister Miller Genuine Draft irony t shirt has pretty hip hair. And that pube hair on his face makes him look like a mature alt-comedian funny guy.

@ 8:32PM Dude is definitely a hipster.

Thats right 11:24 PM Miller Genuine Draft interviewer is a hipster douche light kinda guy.

He's still working on his improv, trying to pay off his UCB college loans by being a gopher at 30 rock, and keeping up his shrine to Dane Cook.

This entire debate just nauseates me. I think it's pretty safe to say being a hipster, to some extent, has been mainstreamed and bastardized in the same way punk rock eventually was back in the 80s or emo culture was in the early 2000s (and my guess is that anyone who has lived in NYC for longer than a decade has seen this happen before.) It's morphed into a certain look with stereotypes attached, and I'm going to assume none of those are ever going to go away. If we're looking to reinvent what it is to be a true, real hipster and be 100% counter-culture, then that means people need to flee the big gentrified cities, retreat back to the suburbia, stop caring about fashion trends and make it utterly impossible for the common person to look at you and think they know what type of music you listen to.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 9:39 AM

All my friends keep telling me I should move to NYC, but whenever I see stuff like this including the video and all the comments here, I can't help but think how much I'd rather not become a cliche. When I see that a few of the alt poser kids from school recently moved to Brooklyn and read their status updates that have the word "hipster" written in it several times by them and the replies, it looks more like a self-aware joke than a hot spot "it" mecca of originality.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 10:08 AM

@9:39 most people here don't really care what others think of them.
If you have someone that stays away from things considered mainstream why do you think that such a person would care about the opinions of you or anyone else involved in those things? There's nothing mainstream about being what you call hipster because unlike punk rock no one actually calls themselves a hipster. The only people familiar with the term are people like you that use it as a way to express disapproval of something without realizing that the people you disapprove of never wanted your approval in the first place. What's a true "100 percent hipster" anyway and who's this "we" you speak of? No one's trying to be counter culture, some people happen to have SOME ideals that can be considered counter culture.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 10:11 AM

"Being a hipster isn't about liking indie culture, or fashion and art or existentialism or whatever. A person is a hipster when they believe that they are better than anyone else because of their beliefs and/or tastes. A person is a hipster when they disregard actual artistic or entertainment value in order to "be cool." A person is a hipster when they put image before actual worth."

BINGO. Spot on. This is what it's all about.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 10:20 AM

@9:39 also, I can think of a look and subsequent stereotype to correspond with any genre of music. Anyone that preoccupied with averting being a perceived stereotype is too concerned with what other think of them. People that are overly concerned with what others think also tend to be the one's that are overly concerned with other peoples business. My point is that no one owes you an explanation for why they do what they do, are you god of what's permissible and what's not? If you don't like something then don't partake in it, beyond that mind your own business.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 10:27 AM

I don't know about that, 10:11pm. I think you missed my point in that there was never actually anything wrong with the culture of people who inhabit places like Williamsburg and the other Brooklyn burroughs to begin with, but in recent years, it's become more of a lifestyle selling point in a way that's advertised as "Hey, do you want to be COOL? Well then come on down to Brooklyn where you'll be the envy of all your old high school classmates when they read your Facebook profile and discover you're living in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the USA!" You're clueless if you don't believe there are young people moving into NYC who self-profess themselves to be "hipsters" because they bought into the commercialization of the trend they've been reading about since college on Pitchfork or in fashion magazines that dress indie bands up in couture clothing during the fall issue, and want so badly to be a part of this "hip" community that they're willing to relocate in order to be accepted. That right there debunks your entire argument that "hipsters" don't care what people think about them. While the original hipsters didn't care much about image and it all came naturally to them, the bottom feeders imitating their style have to carefully plot their every move.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 10:31 AM

"BINGO. Spot on. This is what it's all about."

It's supposed to be, but it's not anymore and you have to accept that. You know how you see guys with black eyeliner and weird cut up hair with blonde streaks in it dressed in girly clothes and overhear someone say, "Look at that emo kid..." and you just want to scream, "No, he's not emo! Emo was a musical style rooted in D.C. hardcore with bands Rites of Spring, Embrace and Fugazi, and not some fashion statement!" It's like that. No matter how much you state the facts, everyone else is still going to call the kid with eyeliner "emo." The word "hipster" has been stolen and repurposed to dictate a fashion, music and lifestyle trend that has couldn't be any further from it's true value.

It's just a bubble. It will burst and there will be something new. There always is.

This video is a double stereotype.

Stereotype one: comidian who thinks it will be funny to exploit "hipsters" by posing as a fashion mag doing video interviews in the worlds biggetst Urban Outfitters AKA Williamsburg.

Stereotype two: trendy fashionistos wondering around a recently revitilized part of NY with cool clothes on pretending NOT to be interested in anything all the while staying up on anything "relevant". (let's be honest, if these people REALLY didn't care about how they look they wouldn't act so "cool" when a camera man walks up).

Bottom line: its a giant clusterfuck of people attemtping to be cool. The comedian thinks its cool to make fun of trendy people. The trendy people think its cool to make fun of EVERYTHING and pretend not to care about anything.

I think this video is stupid. I think the people in it are acting stupid. I went to Williamsburg for the first time last year and saw a lot of these type of people but every one seemed to be pretty nice and I actually enjoyed my time there. The brunch at Diner is pretty damn good and Academy is full of great records. But again, the people there make it seem like Urban Outfitters bought a city by the way they look but that doesn't mean it's not a cool place.

Take it from a guy who lives in an abandon city in the South that was once a great place to live, we can learn a lot from a Williamsburg and a Portland and any other place deemed a "hipster" city, if they wanna make it cool and trendy and bring good bands and restaurants and other cool shit, I'm all for it.

As for the "hipster" thing, just drop it already. Who gives a shit? REAL hipsters came out of the '40s anyway. It's just like any other trend that moves in circles. It'll go away and then our grandkids will be calling each other hipster again. Give it a rest.

Posted by suomynonA | July 5, 2011 11:58 AM

10:41: I tend to agree with that. I've notice that "hipster" is more of an attitude than a look. I've bumped into people who are dressed like some of these so-called metal hipsters (with the boots and what not), and they were some of the most down-to-earth people I've met in a while. Meanwhile I've come across people who dress mainly casual (not overly dressy) who act to-cool-for-school and come off as the whole condescending "I'm above acknowledging you" package. I consider those people "hipsters".

Also, the word "hipster" is so overused these days, that it's long lost whatever zing it had. A more accurate, lasting word would be "trendy".

They're barely even ridiculing them, they're just asking them questions and letting them answer in the stupidest manner possible. It's about letting the retards who think they're hot shit for buying Threadless T-shirts demonstrating how pathetic and sad they are, without really doing anything.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2011 7:08 PM

And the girl "actor" aspiring comedians in most of this video attempt at comedy is a mockery of themselves unwittingly and is just as pathetic as the big glasses wearing air head hipster girls who work at the dumb ass clothing stores.

Remember kids if your going to have a large enough ego to think your going to be a writer or comedian in the corporate world of Comedy Central or NBC (and its true as impressionable as their juvenile minds are) you best realize there is maybe 10 comedians within maybe a 10 year period who are worth even paying attention too because theres so much regurgitation of others material.

It was better for comedy years ago when people struggled and there wasn't these chain store type little improv schools convincing hundreds of naive guys and gals they can be like the State or Kids in the Hall.
Hilarious to view them in their attempts though.

Hey numb skull Ive seen three of those girls trying to do comedy on video links via the UCB clown college horrid site a few times. It's not just the girl at the beginning talking about being a slut. There is a few on there.
I was talked into going to UCB by a friend four years ago and we both thought it was horrible and we weren't the only ones thats for sure.
