A social "movement" brought to attention through internet memes and word of mouth that has almost no validity in the real world and will become passe in a matter of months.
Common sense person: "let's go occupy the apple store, they are a money grubbing corporation, right?"
Hipster douchebag: "Occupy apple? I need my iphone to pass along all the latest fads. Besides occupy is so 2011, it's all about Kony 2012!"
Common sense person: "you're just buying into the latest fad. You're such a hipster fauxtivist"
