A ballsy dude in Chicago wants to jump out of a plane with a Chipotle chicken burrito in hand. He’s so passionate about this idea that he’s created a Kickstarter campaign to ask complete strangers to pay for his burrito skydiving excursion.
The L.A. Times reports that Noboru Bitoy first created a campaign on the popular crowd-funding website earlier this month to raise the $8 it would cost him to buy a Chipotle burrito. His Kickstarter page asked, “Just how delicious is a chicken burrito from my local Chipotle? I will find & display the answer in a creative presentation!”
He met his goal, kept his promise by making a video and a burrito graphic, and gave the Chipotle burrito a “yum” on a scale of “no to wow.”
Then Bitoy decided to make a new goal. In a video posted on his page, Bitoy asked:
“The other night I was thinking, how would a burrito taste while plummeting back to earth? My next stretch goal is skydiving with the burrito.”
Watch the full video below.
There’s 21 days left in the 30-day campaign, and he already has 173 backers who have collectively donated $680 thus far. He’s met his goal of $500, which he needs to make the skydiving excursion a reality.
Bitoy tells the L.A. Times,
“To be honest, I did not imagine that the campaign would go as far as it has! Naturally, I feel great about it. Love it or hate it, there’s a place for everything on the internet.”
The daring man will make the dive some time after March 29, and will make an infographic on skydiving with burritos.
Bitoy posted the below response from a backer on his Kickstarter page, which pretty much sums up exactly how we feel about the whole situation:
