Try raiding a hipster’s pantry and you probably won’t find Twinkies, Nerds, or Slim Jims anywhere. The fact is that hipsters will only buy or do anything so long as no one else is. Once they find out that there are more than 10 people interested in the same thing they are, they lose interest. So one U.S. artist by the name of Dan Meth, decided to reimagine some of the most popular American snacks we all know and love and rebrand them so that even hipsters would want to buy them. Essentially, you could say that by having a more unique packing, hipster will also take more time to actually taste the product and enjoy it properly. So check out some these artistically repackaged junk food and tell us which one you liked the most.But what if they came in a cigar box? We’re guessing Hostess would have to change the name of the product to “Twigars.” Then those hipsters would really be stuffing their faces with those golden sponge cakes with creamy filling.
But with a hipster revamp, folks would be living dangerously with a fancy brown bag that’s got two colors mixed all together. Then again, the color separation is a big selling point for Nerds, so this might not work out so well.
Plus, nothing says hipster more than a can with a French label on it. Too bad the artist didn’t translate it more accurately so that it read “Fruit Par Le Pied” or “Fruit Au Metre.” Then It would really be something hip.
Betty Crocker would certainly be able to get this popular snack back in most U.S. stores if Dan Meth’s hipster repackaging was used. It looks all grown up on the outside, but will bring out the inner child in any hipster when they open the box.
It might look as fancy schmancy as a box of expensive cigars, but unless they use additional wax paper inside, it won’t stay fresh. Otherwise, it would turn into a thin, dried up sausages that not even hipsters would sink their teeth into.
On the other hand, it might be more enticing to hipsters, if it was served in a jar instead. But either way, it would probably cost three times more than the can itself. But Dan Meth certainly gets points for creativity.
Fortunately, they didn’t rename the cereal something silly like Captain’s Berries, cause hipsters would have had a field day making jokes about that, especially with the blue ones. Can you imagine? The Captain’s big blue berries?
