If you have loved ones in your life who are just taking this hipster thing too far, you might want to consider holding an intervention for them, like the one shown in The Hipstervention parody campaign. Created by McCann Australia for shaving company Bic, the tongue in cheek commercial features a concerned mother and the drastic measures she had to take to get her son on a more mainstream path.

The Hipstervention outlines a number of unacceptable hipster behaviours, from grotesquely vintage outfits to excessively long beards and an aversion to showering that eventually drove away his girlfriend. Luckily the intervention goes well and the clean-shaven son wins back his girl at the end of the short video.
