Potato Salad by Zack Danger Brown - Kickstarter
A page of product details starting with the export "I'm making potato salad." (Making potato salad.). In other Kickstarter projects, the product introduction movie that will almost certainly be seen is not posted, and it is a very pleasant project that only one picture is listed on the page.
It seems that the person who launched this project is Zack Danger Brown, who is on the left side of the photo.
"Basically I'm just making potato salad. I have not decided what kind yet." (Basically I am going to make potato salad, I have not decided on the kind yet). I see……
The image of potato salad which is listed only is like this. There is a piece of bacon or an object that is seen as white of boiled egg, and it looks like a delicious salad is ready as far as you can see in the picture.
Zack's target investment in this project is just 10 dollars (about 1000 yen). In Kickstarter sometimes funds of hundreds of millions of yen may be gathered in some cases, this amount is an epoch-making thing, and at the time of article creation, it is more than 3,000 dollars (about 3 million yen) from more than 3000 proponents It is surprising that investment is gathered.
And the lineup of the reward items set for each investment amount is also full of individuality. If you invested 1 dollar (about 100 yen) you can post your name on Zack's website and you can call out the name loudly when you cook the salad. If it is 2 dollars (about 200 yen) it is said to be able to receive the above snapshot taken plus Zack 's cooking scenery. I see…….
At 3 dollars (about 300 yen), in addition to the above, you can send a bit of potato salad. In the "Deluxe package" of 5 dollars (about 500 yen), it means that the desired ingredients are mixed into the salad. It is amazing.
When the investment amount reaches 10 dollars (about 1000 yen), it is already approved as "platinum level". When you come this far, you can see the situation as you interfere with the kitchen that cooks the salad.
When it comes to the "potato · madness" plan of 20 dollars (about 2000 yen), it will be gorgeous at once. In addition to getting a haiku that Zack wrote about potato salad as a material, you can get your name carved into potatoes that is material and can get recipes of mayonnaise and salad. But this plan seems to be popular and has already reached the capacity limit. Sorry.
There are more. Haiku is not included in "The Hat" plan of 25 dollars (about 2500 yen), but it is possible to receive hat with potato salad as a motif. In the "Hommage T-shirt" plan of $ 35 (about 3500 yen)HOMAGEYou can get original T - shirt made by the company.
And at the $ 50 (about 5000 yen) highest-ranking plan "potato salad of the world", you can get a recipe book with a number of ingredients gathered from users all over the world I will.
The plan prepared is over. So, this potato salad project is not a "project that can get potato salad" but "project to support Zack's making potato salad".
Zack started the campaign on July 3, but the amount I was targeting at that time was 60 dollars (about 6000 yen), but at the time 3 days passed, I got $ 5,000 (About 500,000 yen) have gathered those investments. Along with surprises, "I am studying how to make potato salads now," Zack said in a movie triumphantly with a movie.
