The Onion Reports That Brendan Fraser “Would Like to Apply For a Kickstarter”

Debate continues to go on about whether or not established celebrities have the “right” to use crowd sourcing funding websites like Kickstarter to fund their projects after a Veronica Mars movie and Zach Braff‘s next movie received significant funding through the website on the behalf of fans’ donations.

Since then more celebrities have gotten into the act, although some celebrities’ campaigns, like those of Melissa Joan Hart and Zosia Mamet, failed miserably.   The Onion decided to have a little fun ripping on the recent trend, and chose an actor who has certainly seen better days as the focus: Brendan Fraser.

According to The Onion (which, of course, is a parody news site), Fraser wants to get in on this Kickstarter trend but seem to be confused about how the crowd funding site actually works.  What follows is a very funny video that teases how out-of-touch 1990s/early 2000s movie star Fraser is with this whole Kickstarter thing.  You can check it out below:
