Dalston Superstars is a new series from Vice.com which satirises the latest contenders in UK reality TV hell, such as Made In Chelsea. They have pitched it as The Only Way Is Essex, but more swag and describe it as a startling, fresh look at the lives of five young creatives from London’s coolest hangout, Dalston. Dalston became what Shoreditch was a few years ago, ie. a hipster’s paradise, and Superstars is in effect the modern day, multimedia version of Shoreditch Twat. Now that London’s posh and chav-tastic have had their 15 minutes, it’s clear that Vice are urgently addressing the need to represent The Big Smoke’s deluded and pretentious too.
