Hipsters In Berlin Organize Their Very Own ‘Olympics’

It seems like the London Olympics is too ‘mainstream’ for the hipsters in Berlin.

For the second year running, they have been organizing the ‘Hipster Olympics’ to find the city’s most ‘athletic’ hipsters.

With events such as the “Skinny Jeans Tug-O-War”, “Horn-Rimmed Glasses Throw” and “Cloth Tote Sock Race”, the Hipster Olympics seem to ‘mock and celebrate’ the hipster culture in Berlin.

As reported by The Guardian, “Competitors needed to care enough to win, but be ironic enough to look like they didn’t care.”
