It’s incredible what people will spend money on.

Several days ago, a man named Zack Brown from Columbus, Ohio, created a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $10. His campaign wasn’t for anything special. All he wanted to do was create a delicious potato salad. Well, the Internet discovered his campaign and did what the Internet does best: turn ordinary things into extraordinary events.

In less than a week, Brown collected $10,030 more than he originally expected. He’s collected around $10,040–that’s not a joke. People have donated more than $10K to help this man make the best potato salad ever.

This is his original description, most likely meant as a simple joke.

The project also faced some pretty severe challenges.

Thankfully, the Internet came through and made this man’s dream a reality. He even posted a YouTube video thanking his supporters.

The project will be open until August 2, leaving plenty of time to further increase an already staggering number of donations.

The Internet, man. It’s a special place.


As of Monday at 10:50 PM, he has raised over $31,000. Un-fucking-believable.
