VIDEO: i am OTHER – “Hipsters vs. Chavs”

Posted on Thursday, 7 March by

Pharrell Wiliams’ online video brand ‘i am Other’ and host Ryan Hall took to the streets of London recently to uncover the perceptions attached to stereotypes of hipster and chav culture.

The interviewer takes to several central and East London locations, stopping a random cross-section of people of all ages and backgrounds to garner their takes on this age-old debate.

Despite the vox-pops not really successfully pulling up any real considered debate (we doubt this was the aim, anyway), the video makes interesting watching as merely a snapshot into mindsets that arguably are shared by a large proportion of society.

An American reporter consulting the British public is normally a fairly cringeworthy experience at the best of times, but Ryan Hall just about gets away with it.
