Someone should make a Scumbag Steve meme for the actual thousand dollar prize, what a joke. It's bad enough you paid a grand for this, it's even worse when you have to pay more money just to fly his ass to your location.

That's $1000. Brilliant.

I've never seen a Kickstarter with matching tattoos as a prize.

I think Living With Lions did this. Or one of their prizes was that you could get a member of the band to get any tattoo of your choice absolutely anywhere.

Their kickstarter was legit though.

The $2000 pledge makes sense if you live in Michigan I guess. Overpriced escort if anything.

I think it's a cool thing for a fan to get to do if they really love the band.

I think Kickstarter is great when it's done correctly, it's nice to know you're directly contributing to the bands you love in the most efficient way possible. That being said, these options seem like something he thought of in 20 minutes time.
