Joke Projects? Give me a break.

StarWarsJokeProjects

I thought someone at Kickstarter was supposed to be checking projects before they go live and filtering out these joke projects?

Also, I’m pretty sure that Kickstarter has rules against posting copyrighted material.

Are you seriously telling me that someone from Kickstarter looked at these and didn’t notice that all the graphics were from Star Wars? How is that even possible? Are they recruiting their staffers from tribes of Siberian reindeer hunters who’ve spent their entire life in the frozen north without access to so much as a VCR?

(Or is this a very, very sad attempt at viral marketing from Walt Disney, new owners of Star Wars?)
