Real Guys Launch Kickstarter to Get Movie Stars to Pay for Them to Go to Their Movies

Movie stars make millions of dollars a film, and still they’re out there on Kickstarter shaking a bunch of loose change in an empty Wendy’s cup like a panhandler on the subway so that they can make a movie. That’s what just happened with both the Veronica Mars movie and Zach Braff‘s follow up to Garden State. Now that we’ve paid rich people to make their own passion project, we have to pay again to see the movie? That just doesn’t seem fair. 

Well, two normal guys, Tanner and Luke are taking matters into their own hands. They started a Kickstarter to get movie stars to pay them to go see their movies. It only makes sense. Yes, this is a Funny or Die parody, but it’s been a long time coming and gets right to the heart of the “rich people asking the rabble for cash” phenomenon that we can’t seem to shake. Also, I’ll donate $100 to see Tanner rocking a pair of new jeans (as long as he only wears the jeans).
