A design student from Chicago recently launched a fairly ridiculous Kickstarter campaign: He wanted to buy a burrito and graph its “deliciousness.”
With an original funding goal of $8, Noboru Bitoy has blown that target out of the water. As of this post, he’s raised a whopping $1,050, all based on this simple promise:
- “Just how delicious is a chicken burrito from my local Chipotle? I will find & display the answer in a creative presentation!”
Bitoy is hardly the source of “derp” in this story; it’s most definitely the 258 donors who have backed his campaign. Although, to be fair, those who donate $10 are given a sticker, and those who pledge $25 or more get a T-shirt, too.
If anything, Bitoy might just be a Kickstarter genius. He mentions that he’s in no way affiliated with Chipotle. However, after this, they may consider recruiting him for marketing.
The minimum pledge amount on Bitoy’s campaign is $1, and for that amount, he promised to graph the deliciousness of his burrito, and then send “a completed version of the Deliciousness Graphic in a .PDF file.”
Because accountability is important on Kickstater, Bitoy made sure to list the risks and challenges, which include an order mix-up and his own inability to successfully consume the burrito.
“I might drop the burrito on the floor,” he wrote.
