About this project
Kentucky is a kick ass state. Show your love for Kentucky.
Kentuckians have created some of the greatest cultural influences of all time. We first sung Happy Birthday, we first fried chicken, we first slapped high fives. We invented bourbon, bluegrass music, and the motherfreaking Kentucky Derby. We birthed cool with Clooney, Depp, and Hunter S. Thompson. We nurtured beauty with Loretta Lynn, all the Judds and Diane Sawyer. We championed sport with Ali, SeaBiscuit, and Rondo. See more of Kentucky's gifts to the world on our Kentucky for Kentucky facebook page.
We are the real deal.
We know this, but the world needs to know too. So we’re making a SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL to show the world our pride.
With your help, we are going to crowd-fund, produce, and air the most epically kick ass Super Bowl 2012 commercial for the great Commonwealth of Kentucky. For Kentucky by Kentuckians. That's what it means to a be a Commonwealth. It’s a project that Kentuckians all around the world will be proud to be apart of. Join us, become a Kentuckian.
It will cost us about 5 million big ones to get this jammer made and buy the spot. There are plenty of us Defenders of the Commonwealth, so just a $1 or $2 each and we can make it happen.
Big money sponsorships for Kentucky for Kentucky are available starting at $250,000. In exchange your brand will receive millions of dollars worth of product placement, press, buzz, Kentucky love, and the opportunity to be a part of some epicness. Your brand will be on the largest stage at a fraction of the price. For information email us at email@example.com. Holla for Kentucky.
Will we still get our t-shirt if you don't reach your goal? Or can we buy the t-shirts later? I really want one! :)
Yes. We're making some shirts right now. Everything we produce to be made in Kentucky. We'll message people when they come in. Thanks your support!
I think that you would get more backers if you didn't use the word "ass"...not trying to be a prude (I'm a backer!).
That's a good point. Not everybody will get the kick ass thing, unfortunately. Kick Ass is a positive fun mantra to rally behind. It's direct, has some humor in it, and is to the point. We don't want to offend anybody, and we hope that people will get behind (no pun intended) it. For what it's worth (hopefully 3.5 million dollars), one of the fastest growing companies in Kentucky has Ass in their name- Big Ass Fans. They are a Kick Ass Kentucky company and have made Ass an acceptable part of our nomenclature. Thanks for your support and question!
