Craig Mandell is out there fighting for the greater good of planet Earth (or at least the people of London) and has promised to send an email to Nickelback’s management for every donation received towards his Kickstarter campaign. $1 gets you one email to Nickelback while $5 gets you a “slightly more forceful email” demanding that they not play London, England.
For $50 your donation “will result in an email to Nickleback with an attached mp3 of Nickelback’s music. This way, the band will hear their own music, and likely retire immediately, thereby ensuring the success of our campaign.”
“With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here – nor even phone here,” he has written.
“Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary.”
Mr. Mandell gave his reasons for a Nickelback Kickstarter campaign page in an FAQ section, saying that the band create “unlistenable music”.
The campaign insists that “this campaign is not about personal profit. All proceeds will go to charity. Or perhaps therapy for those who’ve been affected by the band.” Mr. Mandell is my new hero. DONATE TODAY!
