Video: Silver Lake Gets (Another) Hipster-Mocking Web Series

Attention Greater Silver Lake: you've got another web series poking fun at your hipsterish ways.

"Hipsterhood" features a hipster dude and a hipster chick, who keep running into each other in Silver Lake, whether it's in the cereal aisle or while crossing Virgil.

It makes mostly the same types of jokes as every other hipster parody we've seen since the early aughts about hipsters trying to look cool and consume ethically (so that they'll look cool). It's been done with claymation, slasher film, blockbuster mash-up but it looks like this one adds a romcom angle.
