This is in fact the second annual Hipster Olympics (I don’t know how I dared miss the first one) and it was held in Berlin over the weekend. Participants in the games competed in events such as the vinyl-spinning contest, the moustache finger-tattooing race and the ‘skinny jeans tug-o-war’.

One tent was decorated with photographs of Jack Kerouac and Steve Urkel, in a tribute to the ‘early hipsters’. I have a feeling Kerouac must be rotating in his grave right now.
