Several tipsters have alerted us to the occurrence of a "hipster" being "walked" by a man on a Segway in Williamsburg over the weekend.
Unfortunately, these men were not just out for a stroll, enjoying life, in the way men do. They were committing an act of performance art.
A tipster tells us that when he approached the duo, he was told to visit godplayground.com, the website of Guo O Dong, a Chinese artist. (We must pause to note that, curiously, the tipsters who emailed us all used quite similar language. A more suspicious reporter might imagine them to have been dispatched by the artist, or perhaps even be the artist himself.)
Anyway, "Hipster on a Leash" was evidently Guo's U.S. debut. Congrats.
