Hipster Trap in NYC

A bear trap containing mod sunglasses, American Spirit cigarettes and a can of PBR

Someone’s been setting up Hipster Traps in NYC and doing a pretty good job of making them look real. Everything except the trap itself is an authentic piece of unofficial hipster gear. Of course, all hipster gear is unofficial, since no true hipster would ever associate with anything labeled “official hipster gear” in the first place.

The cardboard (but very realistic) trap contains pink plastic-framed sunglasses, a yellow bike chain, a pack of American Spirit cigarettes, and a can of PBR. Pabst Blue Ribbon being the unofficial official beer of hipsters everywhere.

The traps have been getting some attention, too: http://www.metro.us/newyork/local/article/806154–hipster-hunters-target-bridge-tunnelers
