Short Film Of The Day: ‘Showdown at the Hipster Saloon’ Gets Ugly in Skinny Jeans

Archives Default

Why Watch? Nothing like lampooning the scene, toying with a Western, and getting a smashed vinyl shard shoved in your face.

When a suspender-bearing, bearded guy gets ousted on Foursquare from his favorite watering hole, he starts a ruckus in the bar that leads to bold talk and even bolder action. It’s funny, and mocking hipsters is an easy task, but the way all the gags are patched together is the highlight here. Plus, special applause to the joke involving a timely text message. Brilliant stuff, and you can say you knew about it before everyone else.

What will it cost? Only 4 minutes.
