So sadly this isn’t a joke. Every year in Germany, crowds gather to participate in an annual “Hipster Olympics” with actual events such as the “horn-rimmed glasses toss” and skinny jeans tug o’ war.”
An attendee takes a photo of ‘early Hipsters,’ author Jack Kerouac and “Family Matters” Steve Urkel.
Participants of the “Hipster Olympiade” (Hipster Olympics) throw horn-rimmed glasses.
Participants compete in a Crate Race.
Contestants compete in an event in which they must suck the “pearls” out of a cup of the ubiquitous bubble tea.
A team celebrates after winning a round of Skinny Keans Tug O’ War.
Members of the winning team, Jam FM, celebrate after winning the second annual Hipster Olympics on July 21, 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
God, save us all….
Some say it's a waste of time. Others say it's a COLOSSAL waste of time.
You mean to tell me someone managed to gather a large population of Euro-hipsters in one location… and let them leave?!?!
German hipster, ha. That event must smell god awful!
#4 The poor nuts of this dude and the other hipster guys. :S
#23 Still would…
#23 hipster or not she's hot
Please. No true hipster would show up at an event like this… or even call themselves hipsters. That's what's so great about them. See… just like that kid who saw dead people… hipsters don't KNOW they're hipsters.
These guys… these guys are cool. Making fun of hipsters by dressing like hipsters. How ironic!
#15 – hey, thanks for the translation. I never would have caught that. DUH!
I don't want to live on this world any more…
Oh my god… Why did I move to Berlin?
What is a seven letter word for Gay? HIPSTER
How many hipsters does it take to change a light bulb? It a really obscure number I'm pretty sure you never heard of it.
#1. moar of the girl on the left.
Kill it with fire.
I love that the chive community is almost always positive, making this site one of the last places on the web that hasn't been completely corrupted.
However, if a massive asteroid had smashed into this park in germany last weekend and wiped all of these people off of the map, somehow i feel the world would ultimately be a better place for it! And while I'm at it, hipsters, much like my high school biology teacher i am not interested in how much change is in your pocket, put on some damn pants that fit you nutless wonders!
I don't see the problem with this group. Who gives a shit. They look pretty good and they're having fun with their people. Carry on, hipsters. I don't see the reason for people to make fun.
Nice one Chive – you've very quickly gone from being a cool site with some original content, to a self-promoting brand cynically pitched at (and almost certainly by) a pathetic Beavis & Butthead mentality.
Now you're just, predictable, regular posts, encouraging us to droll like Pavlovian dogs over boobs, asses, cars, celebrities, booze & unaffordable luxury products and locations. You blindly worship soldiers, police & the military, have a decidedly low (or no) brow 'America-is-great' politics and think it's OK to sneer at marginal or non-conformist groups or individuals (e.g. this post.) Good luck selling those T-Shirts, guys…there's a lot of impressionable white college kids you've yet to cash in on.
I'm no Hipster, but in true Hipster style, I'm proud to say I was a fan of the Chive before it was cool.
"Fuck you, Fuck You, Fuck You, You're Cool, Fuck You, I'm Out"
The high heels in spain,,,this hipster crap!!! I'm going back into my hole until I can sort this out! The voices in my head are in total agreement for once!
Guys in high heels and hipster Olympics. In the words of the great professor Farnsworth, "I don't want to live on this planet anymore"
We should arrange our own Olympics right next to theirs, with one event; kick the shit out of as many hipsters as you can.
#5 really surprizes me. I wonder how Jack Kerouac would feel being associated with these limp wristed dweebs?
Whats going on today with the shitty posts…put the pipe down
The hipster olympics, is of course done ironically. Seriously don't you think this is making fun of hipsters , that the people are all doing it to mock the real hipsters?
#7 #12 #19 #23 #28 still hot
#13 is that ashton kutcher?
So did they do Olympics before it was popular
