NEW YORK (May 26th, 2016) - Comedian Ilja Van Braeckel launched the ‘Official World versus Trump Campaign’ on Indiegogo. The grassroots crowdfunding campaign will use skywriting aircrafts to broadcast its messages over the heads of 8 million people and aims to remind them that things can be looking up, by making them do so too. Additionally, the campaign will commission cartoonists, painters and other promising artists and encourage them to create influential election-themed artwork. The overarching objective is to give a comical and creative twist to the upcoming United States presidential elections and to empower any citizen to take a stance, regardless of nationality, gender, ethnicity, religion, or political preferences.
“It’s easy to feel helpless next to a billionaire running for president but no one can buy his way into the Oval Office,” the young Belgian comedian says. “The prospect of Trump as president concerns us all and we want to reclaim democratic justice in a humorous way. Raised funds will be allocated to amusing but influential activities like skywritings, artwork and appealing global community campaigns, all grouped on our social media channels.”
According to the campaign webpage, skywritten messages of 3,000 feet wide that stay visible for an hour to 8 million people are powerful mediums that appeal to many and hold great potential to go viral. In addition, artwork can be just as influential but artists are often underpaid and even discouraged to circulate impactful election-themed cartoons and paintings.
The crowdfunding phase of the campaign will run for one month and perks range from encouraging coffees for the artists and copies of Top Gun for the aircraft pilots to signed pieces of artwork and inches of ‘cloud’ for the aircrafts to write in.
“Whichever place you roam on our beautiful space marble, we will all be influenced by the upcoming elections. The possibility of Trump as president is a serious issue but with the World versus Trump Campaign we choose to unite in art and comedy instead of fear and anger, and we invite everybody to join.” the comedian explains.
