Something a little different: Dan is begging you for money. To make something really dumb: All info here: WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA? In the last 10 years, Australia has had just under 31,023 Prime Ministers. No one can remember who the current one is. So I've created a hotline, that with the power of some code, can update automatically via Wikipedia and tell us who is the Prime Minister at that given moment? It's just like the speaking clock — but for the Prime Minister of Australia. It's dumb and funny — and we've built it already! Thanks to our friends at Twilio, you can call it now. 04888 54 280 Try it? I'll wait. See it's great. But the NUMBER is hard to remember. 1300 WHO THE F*** IS P.M? This is where you come in. I think the best 1300 number/name for this project is: 1300 WTFI PM 1300 Who The F*** Is P.M. However those numbers are really EXPENSIVE. They cost $3000 a year. So to start off with we want $3000. Then if we get more, we plan to use that money to advertise the hotline. $3000: We'll buy the number/name 1300 WTFI PM| $15000: We'll make a saucy old school late night style hotline ad and run it on TV $23000: We'll book an infomercial on a morning TV show. $30000: We'll pay for a full page ad in a national broadsheet newspaper. IMPACT You will get the satisfaction of financing some crucial Australian information infrastructure. At A Rational Fear we have a track record of making good on our crowdfunding, in 2014 we raised $50000 to make 12 weeks of satirical comedy online. Which we did to great success. REWARDS & PERKS: I honestly don't think anyone gives money to these things for the perks, but I'll tell you what, how about these? $0-$50: You will get the satisfaction of knowing your donation has helped make the world a funnier place. $50-$100: 2 free tickets to every A Rational Fear live show in 2019 $100-$500: 4 free tickets to every A Rational Fear live show in 2019 >$500: 2 free tickets to every A Rational Fear live show in 2019, and a guest interview spot on the A Rational Fear podcast for you to promote or say anything you want (within the boundaries of defamation).
