Hilarious & Accurate Video Mocks 'Hipster' Parents (VIDEO)

In Brooklyn, New York (and in some other urban parts of the country), "hipsters" who brunch and wander the streets make up a scarily large portion of the population. Hipsters are defined by the Urban Dictionary as: "A subculture of men and women typically in their 20s and 30s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter."

Here in my neck of the woods, we just call them pretentious and annoying. The hipster lifestyle is a strange one. Often these are older people with their artsy jobs, scarves, and tight jeans, and they often have children.

When two hipsters mate, it's easy to imagine what they might produce, and the below video from College Humor mocks the trend in such a hilarious, spot-on way with their "brunchables" video. See for yourself:

The "brunchables" mocks the fact that no hipster parent would dare feed their child the processed food typically found in a disgusting "lunchables" container (would anyone, really?). Instead, the hipster parent would favor fare like fresh radicchio, kale, couscous, and salsa verde.

The video nails every aspect of hipster parenting culture -- intellectual pursuits (crossword puzzles and The New York Times), drinking (mimosas and cerveza in a pouch), foodie-ism (locally grown elderberries and caramelized grapefruit). It's hilarious and if you live in a hipster-filled area, you will relate.

As a parent, though, I do have one question: Why is this a joke? The idea of the real lunchables is actually a good one, right? So why not make a healthy, gourmet version of that for us parents who would rather not feed our children nitrate-filled processed meats and fake cheese?

I sense a new career path for some in the hipster movement!

Did this video make you laugh?
