"Laff yer ass off" The Hilarious R-Rated Music Parody Project. An album of 18 gut busting lampoons of country & rock music

About this project

INTRODUCTION

Hopefully you watched the intro video and heard a few of the hilarious parodies my team is producing. Hello, I'm Gene and I'm a Nashville music producer. We've been working on a super fun and hilarious project we call: "Laff yer ass off." It's a hilarious R-Rated music parody project but I've got a dirty little secret. You will participate too. Read on --you'll see. LMAO.

We're producing a big album with some funny music videos to boot. Even the smallest contributor of just $1 and $2 will receive songs and the bigger contribution receives a CD of the entire album, DVD's of music videos, project booklet, bloopers & outtakes DVD. $50 pledges and greater will also receive autographs of all artists. So pre-order right now.

Have a look at these knee slapping titles, but just wait til you hear them. If these songs don't make you laugh I'll eat your shoe sideways.

SONG TITLES

Just for looking at this project and to say "thank you" we're providing a free bonus song herein. Although we call this an "R-rated" project --few songs reach that level. No songs have "F" words or anything like that and I'm a square so this is for adult consumption, so here's my lame-o disclaim-o... If you're offended by subjective lyrics please do not play the video or this free song preview (unless you're twisted like me). Sorry, we can only provide about 1/2 of the tune and decrease quality for file size purposes. Choose one of these locations.

  • "Shavin' Off my Muff for You" Location 1: Listen Here
  • "Shavin' Off my Muff for You" Location 2: Listen Here

Let's keep laughing... Each week during this campaign we will also upload a new song preview.

ALBUM FEATURES

  • Top shelf talent and production
  • 18 unique & side splitting tunes (plus bonus tunes)
  • mega funny satirical album of country & rock hits
  • distribution placement & press releases forthcoming
  • recorded by many of the finest studio musicians in the industry
  • produced by Nashville producer who has produced and co-produced artists who have numerous top #10 hits to their credit

There is always controversy concerning parodies and "fair use" laws. We do not agree with people who create parodies and claim originality or weasel out of royalties. We will credit no parody writers as we are ultra sensitive to original works, therefore royalties will be paid and we will credit all originators, plus provide sale locations of their works. It will only take 90 days from the time we reach our contribution goals to finish the entire project and ship your rewards to you so you'll be laughing your ass off soon!

BONUS TRACKS by you, huh...?

I said there are 18 songs on the album. Well I lied like a politician (LOL) ...there will be 20 songs and you might be the one to come up with a song title for the 19th and 20th songs. LMAO. So let's talk dirty...

Just write your hilarious parody title, the original title & artist in comments and we will select our two favorite parodies. If one is yours we will write, record, and put the songs on the album plus send you one of the microphones that recorded the session. These are brand new professional mics used just for this project and one could be yours. We will also send you one of two guitars used for the sessions. One is an electric telecaster and the other is a well used 33 year old steel string acoustic that has recorded hundreds of sessions over the years. Everyone is welcome to try so put your creativity to work, but no "F" words or over-the-top titles. Keep it high class for this low class project.

EXCEEDED GOALS
It doesn't matter how many pledges we receive beyond our goals, they will all be fulfilled and we can dispatch a fulfillment firm if necessary.

OUTTAKES
We'll save all outtakes and bloopers of the music videos and we'll make DVD's that will be included in your contribution of $35 or greater. We had fun shooting the intro video and although it may be corny we saved the outtakes and thought you might enjoy seeing these embarrassing screw ups, from train interruptions --to barbed wire --to falling down and epic fails!

BACK TO BUSINESS
All 18 songs are instrumentally tracked and needing just a few touchups. 1/2 of the songs are mixed and ready for mastering. We think this is a great Kickstarter project. I have a confession to make... I'm a producer, I am no social media or marketing expert so we need the assistance of contributors to help spread the word of this wacky project. We are placing this album into various distribution channels and we're grateful for your contribution by pre-ordering now. You may visit the websites where your name as supporter will appear: www.genesibbett.com and www.laff-ass-off.com

Because of time & costs of fulfillment we are fulfilling the lower dollar pledges in a digital delivery. The $35 and greater pledges will receive the complete album via download (so you won't have to wait) but you will also receive a mailed package of all the contents shown below. So make sure your address is current if you select one of these pledges.

In the past I have done both non-union and union sanctioned projects. This project is non-union.

We look forward to meeting you here in Nashville for our May 14 lunch with an artist and dinner & concert with these kooky artists where you'll... laff yer ass off. And one more thing... check this out: http://kickingitforward.org

Risks and challenges

I will keep everyone updated throughout the course of this project. If contribution goals are not met your credit card will not charge. I will be transparent throughout the campaign and I will have your goods delivered in a speedy fashion and minimize your risk. If we are fortunate enough to receive far more contributions than we planned we will dispatch an outsource firm to fulfill all orders.

All business models carry certain risks. You should never commit more money than you can bear to lose but we believe we have minimized your risk by using industry experts to deliver everything we say.
