The Founding Fathers of Hipsterdom

A few years back, we shared a statement made by Adbusters that went a little something like this:

“We’ve reached a point in our civilization where counterculture has mutated into a self-obsessed aesthetic vacuum. So while hipsterdom is the end product of all prior countercultures, it’s been stripped of its subversion and originality.”

Fast forward to 2011, and the creation of a new blog with the primary goal of proving “that hipsters aren’t original, they’re just trying to be like dear old dad.” Dads: The Original Hipsters manages to hit the nail right on its rusty head -and then some. The result is a critique that’s not only astute, but pretty damn funny too.
