The famed comedy group mocks crowdfunding, seeking to raise $1.6 trillion to fund Obama’s plan to bomb Syria
Passionate about going to to war with Syria? Then put your money where your mouth is and donate to a Kickstarter campaign to put President Obama’s plan of attack into action.
The Second City Network is parodying America’s willingness to crowdfund just about anything in a new sketch that asks viewers to donate to the Kickstarter campaign: “The Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends with Jay-Z?”
Since the country is already in trillions of dollars in debt, the “goal” is to raise $1.6 trillion to fund the government’s war on terror — and on the rest of the world.
“World War III is not going to be like those other Republican wars fought on just 1 percent of the world; this war is going to be fought on 99 percent of the world,” the video quips. “It will be everywhere: Russia, China, Africa, Cincinnati, your favorite brunch spot — the one with those kickass ranchero breakfast burritos.”
And like any good Kickstarter campaign, there are plenty of great incentives. Those offering a $25 pledge to support WWIII will receive a piece of rubble from a war-torn Middle Eastern country, kissed by Sen. Lindsay Graham, while $100 donations yield citizens a day pass to leave their local refuge camp.
