Joshua Lucas Bernier, a 20 something blogger from Montreal, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe where he wants to raise $75,000 to purchase a Ferrari 360. As a reward to anyone willing to help pay the way and help Josh purchase this super car of his dreams, he is offering ads and shout outs to those willing to pitch in. Any company (or person) willing to pay $250 will receive a decal advertisement on the car which he is promoting as a rolling billboard.
Bernier has already raised about $1500 (3%) towards his goal after just a few days. On his home page that he has launched in conjunction with his GoFundMe campaign it appears he is starting to rack up some page views too with over 30,000 for today already (as of this writing).
Bernier is pretty straightforward that he wants to practice his web promotion skills in launching this outlandish attempt. And why not – stranger things have happened in the crowdfunding world:
Im Josh, a 20 year old blogger from Montreal. I have started this ad campaign in order to practice my web promotion skills, and to maybe help one of my biggest dreams come true.
Are you looking for a unique way to advertise your business? Exotic cars are attention magnets, and im offering the chance to purchase physical ad space on a Ferrari. Now if the goal of $75,000 isn’t reached within one calendar year I will refund all the donations that were made for ad space. Or alternatively make a donation to a charity in your name.
We will check back in a few days on this one.
