If you are using crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to fundraise ridiculous projects such as potato salad, Jena Friedman made a video for you. The director and comedian created this hilarious fake ad for a non-existent website called to make fun of crowdfunding sites.

Jena Friedman and the COMICS4MSF team created the commercial parody to encourage people to work harder rather than asking others to donate online. The 'non-funding online platform for creative projects' rejects the notion of crowdsourced financing and instead utilizes public shaming devices so your friends and family can discourage you from going after your stupid goals. This includes linking to your social media accounts to give your loved ones a method of communicating brutally honest feedback.
