Proceeds from purchases go to World Central Kitchen (donate here!) and other COVID-19 response organizations. I tried to work out ad revenue, but Google wouldn't approve it. Apparently a 30 minute video qualifies as "no content." Who knew? Anyhow, I'd also love to support folks who are out of work (specifically service workers and artists) and the production of PPE, so if you have any ideas for other organizations to support, do let me know.
Also, it gives us a bit of levity while we're all staying home. Ha ha haaaa.
You're under stay at home order, too, right? I mean, everyone is doing something weird right now. Going 2007 Britney on their hair. Making exotic forms of sourdough. Exploring various forms of dance. I thought this would be a good use of my time.
I wanted to help raise funds for some of these organizations, but let's be honest: it's hard to pry people's money from their hands, especially right now. I figure this way at least you're laughing while you're donating. Again, I wanted to let Google foot the bill with ad revenue, but alas, it can't get approved.
Actually, I've been trying to help out COVID-19 response in other ways too such as helping my wife make masks and designing an easy-to-fabricate and collapsible intubation box for first responders and other space-constrained treatment environments. But, other than that, no, not really.
Because I'm cheap and used a $15 microphone setup to record it. It sounded good in the monitor, but the final result is, uh, authentic to the smokey dive bar setting so to speak.

“You did what now?”

“That'll cost $500 more.”

“Wow, that took a lot longer to edit than I thought.”
