      Hi - I never got my reward (which was a bumper sticker and a download of something?) - I mean, I would have funded it anyway, but. The reward would be nice. :-)

    2. Creator Babak Taherzadeh on May 8, 2013

      Received two big fat packages from these fine humans .
      Thank you for putting up with us

    3. Creator Patrick van Dissel on April 6, 2013

      Ok, watched it. It's kinda good, expected more, but it's kinda good

    4. Creator Gregory Kane on April 5, 2013

      I JUST got mine today and I'm from Canada. So they are making there way out :)

    5. Creator Admir Nevesinjac on April 3, 2013

      I still did not get my DVD nor the bumper sticker? Who can I contact about this?

    6. Creator Babak Taherzadeh on March 26, 2013

      I received a response and the rewards are on their way ! Lots of moving parts . Thank you guys . Nothing but love . Thank you !!

    7. Creator Babak Taherzadeh on March 26, 2013

      Nothing. How much longer ? Ridiculous

    8. Creator Neta on March 14, 2013

      I just got my package--looks like they're maybe staggering shipments to keep in manageable, so don't lose hope!

    9. Creator Tim Adams on March 14, 2013

      Got my rewards today. Everything is great, except the poster is wrinkled and torn due to the packaging. Any chance of getting a new one?

    10. Creator Michelle on March 14, 2013

      I just got my stuff today! Couldn't have come at a nicer time since I'll be traveling out of state so this gives me some time to read the book :D

    11. Creator Mike Webb on March 9, 2013

      Let's see no update in a long time. The dvd we paid to have put out has already made it's street date. Nobody seems to have any items. I would say, yes, now is probably a good time to get concerned.

    12. Creator Neta on March 8, 2013

      Hi guys, I'm wondering if packages have been sent out yet and I should be worried that I haven't received anything yet, or if they're still going out. Just thought I'd check. :) Thanks!

    13. Creator Babak Taherzadeh on February 26, 2013

      I did a couple of the $350 packages and was just wondering when..

    14. Creator Patrick Tobin on February 1, 2013

      Mr. Lilard,

      I'll be seeing you in a few days when you're visiting the troops in the middle east. I am really looking forward to this!

    15. Creator Marc Moulinet on January 28, 2013

      The Tugg process is almost an entrepreneurial process. I hosted one in my city and had almost 60 in attendance. It's attributed to contacts, social networking etc, not Matt or the cast swooping in to do the work for you. The theatre helps a bit if need be, but you need to almost force your contacts to go, make it an event, essentially if you host it, you are the backer, the publicist etc. I think you missed the point of what was supposed to happen. It's not an "if you build it they will come venture". I'm sure Matt and his team would agree!

    16. Creator matthew lillard on January 28, 2013

      hey, hey folks!! Sorry for any frustration on the rewards front. We can only get the DVDs out as quickly as the distributor gets them to us! We should have them this week and Whitwater will get them out ASAP.

      We LOVE you and are so humbled by your support. Apologies we are not better at this!!

    17. Creator Mike Webb on January 24, 2013

      So I am going over things and I just wanted to say I feel a bit unappreciated. I know people are going to disagree. However I found the tugg screening process to be quite a mess and my town never got a screening. I worked hard and got no help from Matt. The dvd is out and I am sad that I helped to make that happen but have to wait a few weeks maybe more to get that dvd. I am just saying if I preorder a dvd or game from a store I can get it the day of release or within a day. It just feels like as a backer of this I am unappreciated. Agree, disagree, that is how I feel.

    18. Creator Christopher Simmons on December 27, 2012

      I was just wondering when I could expect to receive my rewards? I have not heard anything in awhile, hope all is well. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

    19. Creator Lori Madson on November 13, 2012

      Yeah what Tammy said
      "Nurse Lori"

    20. Creator TeslaGirl on November 9, 2012

      I still haven't received the survey for my shipping information - what is the status of the pledge support awards?

    21. Creator demetrios on September 17, 2012

      Any update when Fat Kid Rules The World will be showing in theaters here in Canada. Also when will the 7" single by Mike McCready be shipping out?

      Thanks man! :)

    22. Creator TeslaGirl on June 20, 2012

      I would love to Tugg Fat Kid to Chicago - alas, I am not on Facebook, Twitter, or any social media other than email. I check in to see if it's coming here, but not yet. Crossing my fingers.

    23. Creator Dustin Adams on June 16, 2012

      One lucky person nabbed The Billings Package.

      Just changed my pledge from $75 to $125. So close! Telling everyone I know to pledge just a few spare dollars. Can't wait for my DVD and Tshirt. Good luck Matt!

    45. Creator Jaron Rolfe on June 12, 2012

      I wouldn't know how to NOT back this.

    46. Creator Lillard Lover on June 12, 2012

      Matthew Lillard has always been hilarious and has single handedly cheered me up during many gloomy days, but he also has a very genuine and sincere spirit about him and I think this is very evident for anyone looking at this project. SLC Punk really meant something to me and I feel strongly that Fat Kid will mean something for a whole new audience.

      If I had any money in my bank account besides what I need for gas I would have pledged more. Thank you for everything Matt.

      Fell the FAT!

    47. Creator Dustin on June 12, 2012

      You all rock! We are sooo close!

    48. Creator Kim t Griswell on June 12, 2012

      I'm still spreading the word. If everyone else hits up their email lists we should be able to push this over the top.

    49. Creator Nanjo Koji on June 12, 2012

      So close! Come onnnnnnnn!
