Guys, didn’t you hear? Ariel wanted to be a part of our world before it was cool.

When you think “hipster,” what’s the first thing that springs to mind? If it’s a redheaded mermaid, then you’re going to love this. The latest Tumblr meme to circulate is Hipster Ariel, where a bespectacled Ariel exudes hipster-esque anguish at how mainstream everything is.

Why do we love this meme? Well apart from the fact that The Little Mermaid was one of the greatest Disney movies of all time (don’t even try to deny it), we love how well hipsterism works with key lines from the movie.

So far, BuzzFeed has rounded up some of the best lines which include these gems:

  • Voices are just too mainstream. Traded mine for a pair of legs.
  • Look at this stuff, isn’t if neat? My vinyl collection is almost complete.
  • It’s a dinglehopper, Eric. Never mind, you’ve probably never heard of it.
  • We got a hot crustacean band before they sold out.

And NewsFeed’s personal favorite:

  • My dad owns Pitchfork.

Oh, and of course, Hipster Ariel has a Twitter feed. At this rate, it’s surely only a matter of time before we see the likes of Hipster Jasmine.
