Caps lock doesn't earn backers as this Kickstarter pledge earns $0

How not to Kickstarter, capslock edition

Finishing three days ago, a Kickstarter campaign for 'BURTON BROTHERS BBQ' unfortunately reached the heights of a total $0.00 total pledged out of a $135,000 goal.




Promising to put a "PUT A MODERN TWIST ON AMERICAN SOUL FOOD IN AND UPSCALE ENVIRONMENT TOTALLY DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERE COMPLETE WITH DAIQUIRI BAR OFFERING AFTER HOURS ON WEEKENDS LIVE ENTERTAINMENT FREE WIFI AND MAN CAVE !!" This unedited quote unfortunately sets the scene for the overall Kickstarter, with the only reward on offer being a $20 tee or hat.


Without a website, campaign video or a single legible photo on offer, hopefully they come back with a new marketing campaign for 2.0. For a much more heartwarming campaign, check out this little kid called Ari and his pledge to code a sweet video game.
