We're as tired of hipster jokes and tropes as the next self-respecting New York City resident, but we have to admit, this video by the folks at UCB Comedy is pretty funny. In it, Brooklyn—sorry, "Brookland"—is treated as a theme park where you can find arcade games everywhere, kittens are in every store (what, like that's a bad thing?), and old-timey musicians roam the streets. Which, sure, that sounds about right, if we're talking about one particular way of looking at Brooklyn rather than the borough as a whole—but we digress.
