A musical about Burning Man should not exist

I love musicals. But a musical about Burning Man? I don't think so. My problem with Burning Man: The Musical is that the songs are badly-written. Admittedly, I watched the first video because I was curious and I expected it to be awful. It tells the story of Joe, a young techie who hopes to become a multimillionaire. I don't know much about him, but he hangs out with Silicon Valley elites, eats psychedelic shrooms, prays to Steve Jobs and dresses like one of the characters from Mad Max.

The first video is up on YouTube, but producer Matthew Werner and his crew are still trying to raise $20,000 to produce two more songs from the musical and eventually a full-length spectacle. Here's the best part: For a $5,000 Indiegogo donation you can get your own speaking or singing role in one of the clips. Good Lord!
