"Man Inadvertently Proves That Hipsters Look Alike By Mistaking Photo As Himself




It's a running joke that male hipsters all look alike with their flannel shirts, thick beards, and other seemingly off-brand attributes. But a comical incident at MIT Technology Review might just prove that they all really do look alike after all.

The publication recently published an article on a study out of Brandeis University about the "hipster effect," which studied how nonconformists usually act unconventionally in the same way – to end up being exactly the same.

"What the study found essentially was that when a group of people decide to be different, to do something non-conforming, there comes a point when they all end up adopting the same behavior or the same style," Gideon Lichfield, editor-in-chief of MIT Technology Review, told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro for Weekend Edition.

While the study itself proves this theory, so does accidentally thinking the edited photo at the top of the story – which featured a man in a plaid shirt with a beanie hat on – is of yourself, a fellow hipster. "

I own a shirt that looks just like that. Pretty sure it was on clearance at tractor supply. Don't have a toboggan like that though.

This guy looks like a keyboard player in a Jars of Clay tribute band.
