Hating hipsters the English way with "Being a Dickhead Is Cool"

Apparently, hating on hipsters is an international phenomenon, as this video from the U.K. clearly shows. Although they never use the word "hipster," preferring instead the much more straightforward "dickhead," it's obvious within five seconds of the start of the song what the target is.

Lines such as "Got a moustache and a low-cut vest" and "Just one gear on my fixie bike" don't leave much room for interpretation, do they? And if they did, the visuals should clear up any confusion. Anyway, the video is a fun two and a half minutes of catchy, humorous hate from the Grand Spectacular, and it will make you laugh -- especially if you're a hipster, since no one hates a hipster more than another hipster.
