The potato salad will be funded.
Ohio kitchen-challenged man Zack Danger Brown told the world he’ll be making potato salad a couple of days ago.
“I haven’t decided what kind yet,” he wrote on his Kickstarter page, and set a $10 goal.
Under Risks and challenges he listed:
“It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.”
With 26 days to go, he’s raised $5283. His stretch goals keep stretching.
- AT $35, he pledged to make 4x as much potato salad.
- AT $100, he’d make two different potato salad recipes.
- $1000 – It’s going to be live-streamed; and
- $3000 – “I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party!”
Uh-oh. So, at well over $3000, Zack Danger Brown just invited the whole internet to a party in Columbus, Ohio.
“I realized that I really liked potato salad, but had never made it,” he told Crave.
“Then I wanted to make potato salad.”
Yesterday, he hosted a Reddit AMA on his project, so expect a lot more money to flow in, and a lot more people to turn up to that potato party.
The most popular pledge is for $1, which nets venture capitalists a thank you shout-out on Brown’s website, and the honour of having their name spoken while he’s making the salad.
But the most valuable pledge to Brown is the $25 package, which has attracted 86 backers who’ll receive
…a potato-salad themed hat along with a bite of the potato salad, a photo of me making the potato salad, a ‘thank you’ posted to our website and I will say your name out loud while making the potato salad.
Brown’s giving himself plenty of time to prep his potato-themed challenge – estimated delivery time on all pledges is December 2014.
“Thanks again everyone for making all of my dreams come true,” Brown wrote in a recent update.
“I can’t wait to say each of your names while making the potato salad.”
