Someone Is Setting ‘Hipster Traps’ in New York
Gawker.com
March 14, 2011

This “hipster trap”—baited with Pabst Blue Ribbon, American Spirits, a bike chain and neon-pink Wayfarers—was photographed by Reddit user gigaface, who encountered the fauxhemian hunter in New York City.

Before you object to the choices of bait, remember that having any opinion at all about hipsters or their taste preferences automatically renders you a hipster. (The trap itself, according to gigaface, is made of cardboard.)

Update from from gigaface: OP here – so now that the cat’s out of the bag, it’s safe to say the work was done by Jeff Greenspan and Hunter Fine
