MC SpandX & Hannah's Field got nothing on these guys: this is the most Portlandy thing that has ever happened ever in the history of ever.

Strip all the literary and historical reference from a Decemberists song, and this is what you get.

Ayep.

Also he didn't mention the McMenamin's chain, which is the most 1890siest thing the Portland area has to offer.

Not quite as funny as the original.

I don't see mutton chops, people cutting ice blocks (although you can buy them at the store) and no more than the usual amount of suspenders. I haven't seen bone-shaker bicycles (although I'm sure it's just a matter of time) and no one walking around dressed like they're from the 1800s but other than that yes everything they say really does happen in Portland if you know where to look.

Also, why on Earth does a good shave at the barber cost to ?!

Inflation, gramps.

I think what it does do is correctly approximate the old Henry Weinhard's beer commercials, which were ALL like this. And Youtube is shockingly devoid of them.

Funnily enough I have seen people (i suppose you could call them the dread h-word) whose self-sustaining artisinal lifestyles involve dressing like extras from There Will Be Blood.

Still != home brewing

This show is totally about how people in LA view Portland. Having lived in both places, it's really just pathetic.

Actually, it's more like how stereotypical "LA people" view stereotypical "Portland people". Dumbness abounds.

You got MOONSHINE!

It's a fucking sketch comedy show. It's supposed to contain jokes about stereotypes.
