Kickstarter has been used to raise money for films, new gadgets, alternative energy projects, to bring back Reading Rainbow, and now, thanks to Zack Danger Brown, to make potato salad.
Brown started a kickstarter for his Fourth of July potato Salad and he’s already made close to $50,000.
Brown writes on Kickstarter: “Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.”
Brown wanted to raise $10 to make a simple potato salad for the Fourth Of July. Well, he’s now made $45,009. That might seem like way too much money for a simple potato salad but Brown promises that he’ll use the best mayonnaise available.
Brown has been updating the Kickstarter page with new pledges as his total continues to climb. At $100 he promised to make two different kinds of potato salad. At $250 he promised to use mayonnaise from the health food store. At $1000 he said that he’d film himself making the potato salad. At $3000, he said that he’d invite “the whole internet over” for a potato salad party.
Brown writes: My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let’s show them that potato salad loves the internet!!
