Gavin McInnes Is The Founder Of The Hipster Movement But No One Will Give Him Credit For It

Gavin McInnes co-founded Vice Magazine. In fact he's often been said to be the inspiration behind its entire creation. The magazine culture was also largely modeled after his personality. He is, arguably, the first modern hipster as Vice took hipsters to an entirely different level with its outrageous reporting methods, love for obscurity, and also placement. You can only find Vice magazine at independent shops or edgy corporate chains like American Apparel. Look at these titles of recent posts from Vice Magazine:

- How To Have Proper Anal Sex

- Bukkake On My Face: Welcome to the Ancient Tradition of the Japanese Facial

- The Sapo Diaries: Getting High On The Amazon With Frog Venom

McInnes left Vice in 2007 because he disagreed with a Vice partnership with Viacom (the media conglomerate which owns MTV). Since his departure he's started an online magazine called Street Carnage, and finished a mockumentary DVD A Million In The Morning. Here is McInnes on camera that shows his personality and outlook:
