A Kickerstarter project to cook potato salad has gone far past its $10 goal and raised more than $4,000.

The project from Zack Danger Brown of Columbus, Ohio, says: “Basically I'm just making potato salad. I haven't decided what kind yet.”

“It might not be that good. It's my first potato salad,” Brown wrote.

He promised to make two kinds of potato salads if he raised $100. As the goal stretched he said he would “get a better recipe” from a chef. Then at $350 he said he would “make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe.”

Backers blew past all those milestones.

He added more goals:

$1000: I'll do a live stream of the potato salad making

$1200: I'll pay someone to film a thank-you video for all of my backers!

The project has 738 backers and raised $4,091 as of Sunday afternoon.

“We're really tearing through these stretch goals,” Brown updated the page at $1,500. “I honestly don't know what is realistic anymore. So, I thought maybe we try to double the current number?”

He invited everyone to a party if he reached $3,000.

“My kitchen is too small!” he told backers. “I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole Internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The Internet loves potato salad! Let's show them that potato salad loves the Internet!!”
