Citibikes arrive in NYC along with old hipster jokes

EV Grieve spotted this tired joke at the Citibike location on East 2nd street and Avenue B. I’m glad to see Citibike is really putting an effort into their hipster humor. I’d imagine some of their planned Williamsburg cliché taglines include:

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. I’ll race you to the PLAID SHIRT store.”

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. Citibike is cheaper than buying a FIXIE.”

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. You still might get hot with all those BEANIES on your head.”

“Williamsbug is only 12 minutes away. Or you could just stay home and shop on ETSY.”

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. Just enough time to build up an appetite for ARTISANAL CHEESES.”

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. Don’t try to ride after drinking too much PBR.”

“Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. 5 minutes by limo you little TRUST FUND bitch.”



  1. Williamsburg is only 12 minutes away. You can’t afford to live there anymore

    Good work Citi Bikes. Insulting potential consumers with edgey hipster humor.

      cooladbro – Who would be insulted by this? First off, no hipster admits to being a hipster so ,technically, no one should feel personally attacked by this lol. Also anyone who’s a Williamsburg stereotype probably won’t be using Citi Bikes seeing as how most of them already have 400 dollar fixies. 🙂

  3. fuck citibank. stop with the free pr.

  4. Hilarious.Only a yuppie a-hole would use these rolling advertisements for a BANK.I hope ALL the bikes are stolen or vandalized.How much did CitiBank pay NYC to BUY all that parking space away from car owners? Maybe this is Bloomberg’s way of justifying those asinine bike lanes, which see little use, have added to traffic congestion and create a second crossing hazard for pedestrians.Come on kids! Breakout the spray paint and paint those CitiBikes!
