Do You Watch Movies on Netflix? Then You’re a Hipster, New Test Reveals

These days, it’s easy being hip. You think waffles taste good? You should probably just put on your Ray-Bans and bang your head against your bird-wallpapered wall because you’re a f*cking hipster. You went to college? Might want to reconsider the granola in your cupboard and the tattered Converse in your closet, because your hipster is already showing. Find out what else makes you a candidate for hipster-shaming via Hipstertest.com, a side project from Noise Marketing copywriter Daniel Blaser and designer Keith Maneri. Blaser’s last public service was banning the word awesome from the agency lexicon.

Answer yes to the Hipstertest, and you’ll get affirmation (“You are a hipster!”), accessorized with a mustache, glasses, and bird. Answer no, and the site simply serves you the next question. In the latter case, I’d love to get some other snarky response, like “You must wear only Brooks Brothers loafers,” or “Do you own a gun?”

Hipstertest is an on-point reminder that the hipster label now means nothing, and those who use it acerbically are stuck in 2011. But if it’s hurled ironically? We need another test for that “hipster.”
