Hipsters Are Funny

Wendy Atterberry / July 29, 2009

Usually, hipsters are funny when they aren’t exactly trying to be (mullets, legwarmers, unironic ironic mustaches). Sometimes, as this short film called “Hipster Job” (as in the biblical “Job”) proves, they’re funny on purpose (a rent-controlled loft in a former asbestos factory, an American Apparel model “g-fry,” a celestial trust fund from God). “Hipster Job” is a great reminder that people are always more endearing and likable when they’re poking fun at themselves. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go write about my wedding some more.
