About

Hipster Jesus refers to a series of images of a hipster glasses wearing version of Jesus Christ. The captions usually reference the life of Jesus as portrayed in the Bible, in the context of hipster culture. ie “Did it before it was cool” or “X is too mainstream.” One of Hipster Jesus’ stock phrases, “I was a zombie before it was cool,” overlaps with Zombie Jesus. The appeal of these images lies in the popularity of jokes about hipsters and those about Jesus. It is not used as a reaction image, but rather as a self-contained joke.
