Kickstarter Potato Salad Goes Viral

Since you own a computer, or  possibly even a kicked up smartphone, you have seen the insanity which is Kickstarter, and the young lad who has offered to make potato salad but needed a bit of assistance. Zack “Danger” Brown has offered to attempt potato salad but asked the world to help fund his dining venture to the tune of ten dollars. As of the time we are writing this the lad has raised over $40,000. That is plenty of potato salad. Not enough to start a potato famine, but certainly enough to feed potato salad to a good part of Columbus, Ohio where he is from.

There are typically perks to donating cash to a Kickstarter campaign, and this quirky potato salad venture is not without a few of those. In fact, as more money is offered Brown is thinking of new and absurd ideas to entice his new followers. At first, for a mere dollar you would receive a hearty thank you from the want to be chef.  For two dollars Brown offered to mention your name as he made the salad, and post your name to his website. Reasonable considering the low amount invested.  Five dollars allowed you to add to the recipe and even taste the salad, and ten dollars you would get all the perks plus have the opportunity to hang out in the kitchen while the salad was being made.  


This was many thousands of dollars ago. Now the stakes have been raised, and his goals are now more challenging.

At certain levels he promised to use better mayo, like the kind found in a “natural food section”. Later Brown said he would live stream the salad making event, and further down the line he stated he would rent out a larger venue and invite “all of the internet”. He also said he would invite the entire internet to a pizza party.

It seems unbelievable considering how many artists each day  wish to have their project funded, but in a way Zack “Danger” Brown is an artist in his own right with a strange culinary canvass. As with all Kickstarter projects there are risks. Brown suggests that his potato salad may not taste good since he has never actually made potato salad.  But he has suggested he may ask a chef for an actual recipe at this point.

If you wish to add to this Kickstarter campaign, check it out.  Should you need an actual potato salad recipe we suggest you look here. We like ours with both mayonnaise and mustard with a good amount of slice boiled egg.

  1. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a twenty five foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
