Just found this on Junkee:

It's very funny.

I hadn't seen those ads!

There are hipsters in Australia, I believe. Not where I am, but I'm sure parts of Sydney and Melbourne* are covered in seething carpets of them.

* I was hoping that Melbourne would be hipster-free, but I found the Hipster Map of Melbourne (http://hipstermelbourne.org/). The base map doesn't load for me, which is fine, because I wouldn't last long in some of those places.

If you treat them as a huge interactive comedy skit, they are actually quite fun :D


See, "our babychinos are made with real baby tears" *snicker*

The trick is to laugh behind a serious face, not out loud. It's like Bodysnatchers. If once they know you're not one of them....

I'll have to practice blending in. Perhaps Shaun of the Dead style (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhj_kEdCG1Y).

Hipsters, zombies...I always get those two mixed up.

Remember, zombies can be killed with a gunshot to the brain stem. Hipsters are much, much harder to kill. You need to trick them into drinking Nescafé, basically.
