Here are things Kickstarter implicitly considers art: Hawaiian bitters, a solar powered sound installation, a mix-tape of whale songs, a pre-Burning Man roller disco, and a weapon to shoot toothpicks. Myq's project has already been funded but the more money the more art he can make. It's at least as artful as a toothpick weapon.
For the last four years, Stefon Zolesky, created by Bill Hader and John Mulaney, has been every SNL fan's favorite drugged-up club-hopper.
