I appreciate your attempts to satirize the music store atmosphere. Certainly, perpetuating certain stereotypes in infamy is wrong. In your case, I see more of a presentation than an endorsement. If these caricatures are not portrayed with lightness from time to time, could certain impressionable people, such as children, believe the crap of trendseeking and foppishness is to be strived for?
Lastly, here are a nice few lines from "The Vanity of Human Wishes" by Samuel Johnson:
Ah! let not censure term our fate, our choice,
The stage but echoes back the public voice.
The drama’s laws, the drama’s patrons give,
For we that live to please, must please to live.
