It should be noted that [[DontShootTheMessage while these bands may be popular among hipsters, this doesn't make the bands themselves 'hipster bands']]. Conversely, a nominal 'hipster band' may actually be abandoned by hipsters if it [[ItsPopularNowItSucks becomes too "mainstream"]]. (Arcade Fire, for instance, were written off by many once they found mainstream popularity from its Grammy wins and soundtrack appearances in movies like ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'' and ''Film/TheHungerGames''.) Additionally, a good portion of bands loved by hipsters actively reject the sarcasm, snobbery, and trendiness that often go along with hipster culture. Arcade Fire have been known to throw in [[TakeThat jabs]] at them in their songs ("they will eat right out of your hand/using great big words that they don't understand!") and indie folk group Music/BonIver outright defied the label by recording an ultra-sincere, proudly cheesy {{autotune}}d PowerBallad for their second album.

* The "Don't Be So Mayo"/"We Will Not Tone It Down" ad campaign for Miracle Whip tries to appeal to hipsters

* One [[http://www.foxtrot.com/2017/09/24/math-hipsters/ Sunday strip]] of ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' had Jason become a "math hipster", using a slide rule to do math and looking down on Eileen for using a calculator. In turn, Marcus looked down on Jason with his use of an abacus.



* On ''Series/{{Selfie}}'', self-obsessed Eliza has her neighbor Bryn, who she calls a "hipster-crite." Bryn dresses in floral prints, runs a book club (in Eliza's words, its for "adult virgins"), her friends have names like Eyelet and Thistle, makes her own pop tarts, and tends to look down on Eliza (but then again, a lot of other people think she's too shallow/self-centered). Bryn and her girls seem to be a bit romantic at heart, as Bryn audibly gasps when she thinks Henry has come to her apartment for Eliza as a "Jerry Maguire moment"

* ''Series/HappyEndings'' parodied hipsters in the epsiode "Dave of the Dead". Penny hooks up with one unknowingly when she [[LaundromatLiaisons meets one at the laundromat]] and assumes his shabby attire is due to being the last clean clothes he had. Max instructs her in acting the part, by basically not caring about anything. She eventually leaves him because, being a LargeHam, couldn't bear acting aloof all the time. The final scene had hipsters shuffling like zombies toward Dave's food truck.

* A popular trend on Facebook -- most definitely played for satirical irony and laughs towards the whole Hipster culture -- are "Hipster" versions of popular fictional (or otherwise infamous) characters. Hipster [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slenderman]], Hipster [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]], Hipster Manga/{{Naruto}}, Hipster [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie]], Hipster [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]], [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker The Hipster Joker]].. The list goes on... Just to drive the point home, almost all of their profile pics have them wearing the standard black horn-rimmed "hipster" glasses.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'' episode "Plaza Prom", Enid is asked to break out her DJ Fireball persona for a prom, and she reluctantly goes along with it. She's visibly uncomfortable when she has to start playing "Mainstream trash", and is later shown hooked up to a respirator with an attending EMT nearby because it's killing her so much. KO later tells her to go ahead and play what's in her heart, prompting her to pull out the "GOOD MUSIC."

* The Mac guy from the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads is considered by many to be a hipster stereotype. In fact, many people who appear in Apple ads appear to be hipsters. This is likely the result of Apple trying to tell people "Buy a Mac and be a hip counterculture artist rather than a PC using drone."

* Dan Cummins has some not-very-nice but funny things to say about hipsters in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssQRrefliao this bit]]. Funnily enough, an audience member calls out the subject at the same time Dan names it.
