About this project
Yes, this is 100% real.
The cards are real, and they're spectacular.
How does it Work?
It's very simple. Your card is delivered to you in a "Safe mode". Here you can start and stop the song as much as you want. After you sign the card with a lovely message, pull the activation tab inside the card which will activate the card. Then slide it into an envelope and deliver!
You want Proof?
Some people may doubt our card can go as long as 3 hours, here's a vid using an early prototype where it goes for nearly 5 hours. Please watch all 5 hours of it! It's highly entertaining.
Is it a Well Made product?
Travis put it to the test and dunked it a few times in a bucket of water. Did it survive? Watch and find out.
Does it survive the mailman?
We tested this a few time already but we finally recorded the experience. Travis sent Nick 10 envelopes in the mail from Irvine to Los Angeles and we even waited an extra week to open them. Watch video to see how it ends.
The idea is simple and fun.
We like to mess with our friends. This is an inexpensive and effective way to drive someone crazy: a card that won't shut up unless it's physically destroyed. Who wouldn't want that? "Some people just want to watch the world burn" says Alfred. We just want to laugh at our friends.
We've been doing some real-world testing.Travis gave a card to a friend to give to another friend for her birthday. This video was texted a few hours later. Hahaha!
Who Else Loves The Joker Birthday Card?
Dude!! I Want That: http://www.dudeiwantthat.com/gear/novelty/the-best-prank-birthday-card-ever.asp
Due to incredible demand, we're now making a Joker Christmas Card. Get that shopping done early and order yours today!
Does the Christmas Card Work?
Within hours of posting the Joker Christmas Card, we got this text from a friend at 4:15am.
• When you send your card, write something really special in it. The nicer the message the harder it will be for them to tear it up. If the kids send a card to grandma there's no way she can tear that up.
• When you give your card at the party, be the first one. This way the card will not only drive your friend crazy as they open other presents, everyone else at the party who's in on the joke can enjoy it too!
• Give the card to a friend staying at a hotel, preferably after dinner. This way when they open it they'll have no escape when it's still singing at 1am in the morning.
More Features? Yes.
If your friend tries to stop the card once it starts it will just get a little bit louder. There are four levels increasing volume. Here, watch the video.
Products like this require volume to get prices down to a respectable level. The more funds we have, the cheaper our cards will be. Our cards cost way less than that fancy hand-beaded one you bought your aunt after her colonoscopy, and ours come with the satisfaction of knowing you've annoyed the people you love most.
Kickstarter is a start but we really want to get this in a specialized stores near you.
What is next?
A Christmas card would be perfect! It is a perfect gift for the season of caring. And of course, we would like to update the Joker Birthday card so the design and song gets a refresh. And down the line we can work on Easter, Graduation, weddings, etc. We even have plans for a Joker Sympathy Card. On second thought... maybe not.

Risks and challenges
We take pride in offering the finest quality cards we can get from China. Our overhead is small and our crew is motley. We'll run a small, tight operation with big dreams.
Really the only risk is for you and missing out. And possibly starting a war.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
