This man is raising money to hire an ‘escort’ to lose his virginity.
His all-or-nothing funding goal is £25,000 (about $38,000).
£25,000?!? Wow. Being a hooker in the UK must be a pretty sweet gig.
Ok, I’m starting to get an idea of the problem here, but let’s press on.
The project comes with eight illustrations, and it’s a weird collection.
- There’s a couple of inspirational posters
- an advertisement to raise handicap awareness
- An meme-style “BEST GIRLFRIEND EVER” photograph of a naked girl playing MarioKart
- A publicity photo of Star Trek’s Commander Spock
- A photograph of a woman with something being poured on her face. (I think it’s honey, but it could be some other yellow fluid.)
…And the Video
This video is very confused. I get that he’s trying to be Charlie Chaplin. … but that’s about all I understand.
If he’s trying to make it look like an old-time silent, why is there both color and singing? If he’s not trying to make it look old-timey why is the color so horrible?
Honest to Internet, when I first saw the preview, the messed up colors made me think this was a white guy in black-face makeup!
But wait! There’s MORE!
Don’t miss his OTHER campaign to raise £1.5 Million (about $2¼ Million) to start a new religion based on the prophesies of everyone’s favorite 16th century nut-bag.
Don’t worry, he’s set up a webpage to explain it all.
Here’s a project that belongs in a steampunk comic book instead of actual reality. (where we live.)
This man needed £6,000 (a bit over $9,000) to complete phase one of his three-part plan to build a “flying bachelor pad”.
So, this isn’t an art project. This guy honestly wants to build a house-sized dirigible. (Then fly it to Burning Man?)
You know, there are reasons people don’t actually use dirigibles.
First of all, it takes a lot of helium to lift something. He doesn’t give the dimensions, so we can’t check his math, but he’s an artist, so we can safely assume he did the math wrong. There’s no way those gas-bags are big enough to lift the bachelor-gondola. There’s a reason the Hindenburg was 800 feet long!
Secondly, Even if it gets off the ground, there’s no way those tiny little fins or those rinky-dink electric fans are going to going to be able to control this thing.
What you’ve got here is a small bachelor-pad attached to two pretty, but inefficiently shaped hemp balloons, that probably won’t even get off the ground, but if it does it’ll be blown away by the wind.
This is a dumb project, but it was a wonderful dream. How did the funding public react to it?
Ansis Māliņš seems like a wonderful person. (and if you look closely, you’ll notice that he’s also a Brony.)
