In which the Unlikely Allies learn to beg.

**UPDATE** Our campaign ends at 2:55am tomorrow morning! I know we've made our original goal, and thank you for all of your generous donations!

We just finished our first weekend of filming, and we're already planning more for the coming months. Your continued donations will assure that we can continue to produce material at the breakneck pace we reached last weekend!

Just $200 more will allow us to produce another 20 minutes of content.

So don't wait, donate!

So it turns out we need your money after all, Kickstarter.

So you're making a little video play with your buddies?

We want to produce a comedy pilot for our sketch group and distribute it on the internet. This will lead to fame and wealth and eventually, literal immortality.

What are you using my money for? I thought comedy was free!

The comedy is complimentary, and god knows actors are the cheapest labor there is, but it turns out every single other thing costs money. We intend to film on an actual farm, build an articulated giant spider costume, and create special effects makeup for a decomposing alien creature masquerading as an entertainment talkshow host. And you just know our crew will demand all sorts of unreasonable things like lunch breaks and cameras that turn on.

Wow, at just $1,100 that's quite a bargain!

Sorry, was that a question?

No, I was just excited. Here's one. Why should I give my money to Unlikely Allies and not that other group?

Because that other group doesn't do what we do. We're producing a show of standalone sketches linked together with funny bits that will gradually build into a story of their own. We love weird, absurd and nerdy things, from alien invasions to time travel to ancient evils from another plane, and we think they're comedic goldmines.

You guys sound really cool and attractive. ;)

That's really nice of you!

Say, what are you wearing?

That depends on the sketch, I suppose. For example, next week we're shooting a sketch where—

No, I mean what are you wearing right now?
