“It was both every hipster’s dream and worst nightmare,” says The Guardian, “Competitors needed to care enough to win, but be ironic enough to look like they didn’t care.”
Last Saturday, 6,000 hipsters were like “Olympics? Meh” and converged on a club in east Berlin for the Hipster Olympics, with the ironically unironic aim of finding the city’s most “athletic” hipsters. Twelve teams of five hipsters went head to head in – among other events – a skinny-jeans tug-of-war, a vinyl-spinning marathon, a horn-rimmed-glasses-throwing contest. They even had a make-your-own-moustache contest!
People are so committed to this hipster thing, I love it!
