Hip or Dangerous?

A tipster send us this short video, filmed in Williamsburg. It's a must-see [thanks Noel]

We did the book, looks like someone may finally do the video series. From website:

The Burg: the hipster world capital where trust fund kids pretend to be starving artists, starving artists pretend to be able to live completely off of credit cards, and everybody pretends not to notice. Who says gentrification isn't funny?


backpackers? aren't they just people who go on camping trips?

i am thinking of switching from messenger bag to backpack, since the weight is then evenly distributed between both shoulders. if the messenger bag is a hipster thing, does that mean i might be switching group affiliations?


wow. ironic hipsters.

hipsters, trustafarians and backpackers should have a royal rumble.

Hipsters in the burg are the most uninteresting, rude and insecure people in the city. Shame on you. It's not a coincidence you all convene in the same area.

Let's hear it for the proud heroin user.
"What to do?"
You could just kill yourself... I hear they have some nice neighborhoods in the afterlife.

lets do some h then sucka

I used to remember a nice neighborhood. When everyone wasn't trying so goddamn hard to be anything, let alone hip. I remember when so called hipsters were the people actually in bands and the cool people I could look to for some good H. Now it's these uptite, unfriendly, boring people who stare at my track marks when I want a pint at the Abby. What to do?

cause for co-motion SUCKS!

a mere trifle, and funny. why DO you people get so steamed about nothing?


go back to gainesville you dumb ass.

you whores are ruining brooklyn. I hate you.

That first guy looks a lot like my brother-in-law. My brother-in-law is not dangerous.

it's so precious and dumb that it's kinda fun. (which was basically the point, no?)

that last guy is the zztop dude who lives in mugs ale house!

Love it...isn't self-deprecation the halmark of hip?


Not Hip, Not Dangerous
Kinda pathetic, but it made me chuckle

Totally Stupid - not remotely funny
