“土豆沙拉”先生又来了 不过这次Kickstarter拒绝了他

去年,扎克·布朗为一盘土豆沙拉众筹10美元,他也因此大负盛名。他把筹来的资金用于在哥伦比亚举办大型活动,并捐助给无家可归的人。尽管如此,他这次的项目却很快被Kickstarter拒绝了。

据报道,布朗向Kickstarter 筹集4000美元购买水上摩托,并使用位于弗兰克林顿哥伦布理念铸造的空间和机器,把摩托艇磨成粉尘。布朗写道:“我当时在哥伦比亚的一个小人工湖,看到有孩子们开着摩托艇在水上转圈玩。那个时候我就想,我也希望拥有一艘水上摩托。不过,要实现这个目标可不简单,你要拖着它,还需要住在有水的地方。几个星期以后,我和朋友Mike商量把汽车磨成粉的过称延时拍摄下来,做成一个艺术项目。我说,“伙计,我们要去买一辆水上摩托艇。”

“我要在全球最大的创客空间哥伦布理念铸造租一些地方并把它放在那里。我还要进行延时拍摄,包括油料油耗尽,提取直至变成粉末。我很喜欢草莓果昔,看能不能把整个水上摩托艇混合进去。这真是太酷了!”

布朗表示他是Seinfeld的超级粉丝,并要把他“破坏”的车辆装到玻璃小瓶里送给支持者。(“这就是可以放在口袋里的水上摩托”)

虽然这个项目刚开始得到Kickstarter的批准(需要改进),但后来还是被拒绝。布朗说:“ Kickstarter推广队成员Taylor 在我得到许可邮件的八小时后打电话通知我一切都结束了,说他们担心人们对这个这个项目的看法问题。我问是否还有改变的可能,他说没有。”

作为对众筹大亨的回应,布朗决定和它的竞争对手 Indiegogo合作。他说:“刚开始我认为Kickstarter想要游艇,但很明显他们不想让水上摩托艇在这个夏天火爆。一直以来,我都把Kickstarter作为优先选择 ,但他们的决定让我很伤心。这个决定好无聊,而我认为Kickstarter不会这么无聊。”

Kickstarter 的发言人在周四在thedailydot.com上做出回应:“我们祝布朗一切顺利,他很有趣并且很有才华。”

Brown的新项目预计本周一在Indiegogo上开始实行。

Last year, Zach “Danger” Brown, took Kickstarter by storm when he launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $10 so he could make… a potato salad. Although he quickly gained popularity for his salad project (and even used the funds for a big event in Columbus, OH along with donating to the homeless), he was immediately rejected by the platform his latest project.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Brown returned to Kickstarter to secure $4,000 purchase a Jet Ski watercraft and, using space and machinery at the Columbus Idea Foundry in Franklinton, to grind the entire watercraft into powdery dust. He wrote:

“I was at a small man-made lake here in Columbus and saw this kid doing donuts in a sweet Jet Ski. At that moment, I knew I wanted to be a Jet Ski owner. Unfortunately, there’s a lot that goes into being a Jet Ski owner. You need to tow it. You need to live near water. A few weeks later, my friend Mike and I were talking about starting an art project where we shoot a time lapse of us filing a car down to powder and I was like “buddy, we’ve got to buy a Jet Ski.

“I’m going to rent a space at The Columbus Idea Foundry (the largest maker space in the world) and store it there. I’m going to do a time lapse of the thing being drained of oil, disassembled, and powderized. I’d really love to partner with Blendtec and see if you can blend a whole jet ski. That’d be awesome.”

Brown revealed that he is a huge Seinfeld fan and would give backers samples of the destroyed vehicle in glass vials (“a Jet Ski you can carry around in your pocket.”)

Despite initially being approved (but needed some improvements), the project was changed to declined. Brown revealed:

“They had [Kickstarter outreach team member] Taylor call me eight hours or so after he sent that really supportive email and tell me it was off. He said they were worried about perception. I asked if there was anything I could change, and he said, ‘no.'”

Responding to the crowdfunding giant’s decision Brown decided to go with its competitor, Indiegogo, for the project. He noted:

“I am starting to think that Kickstarter is in bed with the houseboat lobby, who obviously don’t want Jet Skis to be hot this summer. I’ll be pro-Kickstarter forever, but this decision makes me sad. It’s a boring decision and I don’t typically think of Kickstarter as being a boring company.”

A Kickstarter spokesperson reportedly told thedailydot.com on Thursday:

“We wish him well; we think he’s very funny and talented.”

Brown’s new campaign is set to launch on Indiegogo this Monday.
