The Hipster Games: We Liked this Hunger Games Parody Before It Was Cool

Do you love The Hunger Games but, you know, only in an ironic way? Then maybe this parody trailer, The Hipster Games, is more your style.

Wyoma Films brings us the dystopian world of Katniss Everdeen, with a twist — a rad, vintage twist that’s, like, totally impossible to find. The protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, gets a trendy makeover as Lochness Evergreen, joined by Falafel Mullarkey, the hipster reincarnation of her fellow District 12 tribute, Peeta Mellark.

Armed with old Talking Heads albums (obviously on vinyl), yoga poses and plenty of experience with raw vegan diets, Lochness and Falafel fight to the death with the hopes of becoming the last “woman or womanish man” standing. It’s worth a watch, especially when the pair revels in the nearly-holy gift sent from above: a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. As The Hipster Games slogan goes: may the trends be ever in your favor.
