Portlandia characters as clueless 'gear junkies'

The popular sketch comedy television series Portlandia this month set its sights on outdoor culture. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play their regular airy, self-consumed character selves in this episode under the auspices of gearing up for a hike in Portland’s Forest Park. Worth a watch to see Armisen try and clip a carabiner if nothing else.

“Let’s get the gear!” Love that skit. Shows how silly we get with all the outdoor gear and tech sometimes.

FYI- That skit isn’t new; I watched it months ago.

Uhhh, who cares if it isn’t new? Thanks for that valuable tidbit, Joey.

And congrats on getting the joke. I imagine you’re just the types they’re trying to parody.

Ahhhhh! So many posers!!
