Supporting a Kickstarter campaign can be a uniquely rewarding experience for everyone involved. Helping creative people get their feet off the ground and bring their products to the world stage is about as good as all the great stuff you get from buying in to the dream. I found this campaign thanks to a very vague Facebook post from a friend that simply said This is the greatest thing ever created by mankind.
Enter: Kung Fury.
Recap: 80’s action burrito stuffed with vikings, Hitler, dinosaurs, topped with Johnny Depp’s Jump Street doppleganger in the lead. I’m all in. This trailer may as well have ended with a ‘Your Welcome’, because it just made my night.
So what are some of the sweet goodies you can get from supporting this Kickstarter? Everything from digital movie downloads, soundtrack copies, and t-shirts, all the way to attending a film party in Stockholm, or being a main character in the movie (which, sadly, that $10,000 has already been filled). In fact, this campaign is already well over their original goal of $200k and currently stands at $498,669, with 13 days left to go. Meaning, there’s still time for you to be a part of something wonderful.
Here’s the full Kickstarter intro, it’s worth watching:
It’s bizarre projects like this that make me want to scour Kickstarter all night, and also give me hope for humanity. Truly, Kung Fury is a blessing.
