Echo Park hipsters are kind of low hanging fruit when it comes to comic fodder, but it still gets us every time. E!'s show The Soup takes aim in this fake video, via Echo Park Patch, which features rapper/flipper Vanilla Ice moving to the neighborhood, remaking himself as an indie rocker, and seducing the bearded locals at Stories Books & Cafe like a has-been Pied Piper. "I personally liked it because we've been doing ukulele covers of Vanilla Ice on tour for years and years. It's great, like, seeing the master," says a local and possible Portlandia extra. For a sequel, we'd like to see Ice get into hipster flipping.
