With incentives like $40 to become his Facebook friend, Corey Feldman raised $14,902.

Have you had the pleasure of hearing Corey Feldman’s recent musical pursuits? No? You’re missing out.

Following his coming out party at a 2013 Limp Bizkit gig where the band backed him for the shittiest cover of Billie Jean ever, Feldman has released a handful of videos and tunes, each one somehow surpassing the last in terms of pure WTF power. He’s been making terrible music for decades, but thanks to the interwebs, he can now properly share his art with the masses.

Behold the entertainment double threat that is Corey Feldman:

I know what you’re thinking – you’ve just found your favourite new artist and you need more. Well, Corey knows as well – and for that very reason he’s going to be releasing his first double album Angelic 2 The Core, chock full of 22 gems like the one above. But he can’t do it alone. And that’s why he created the Elev8or 2 Ascension fundraising campaign, in which he asked fans to provide him with the trifling amount of $105,000 to pay for the album’s mastering, artwork, duplication, distribution, or marketing.

“But Corey,” you might ask, “aren’t you a well known actor from The Goonies and The Lost Boys? Shouldn’t you be able to pay for this yourself?”

Well, on his Indiegogo page, Corey explains (in a mini-essay packed with unnecessary Internet abbreviation to the point where you want to drive an icepick into your eye sockets so you can no long see it) that “after 10 years (!!!!) of financially backing this project” he has “no budget left.”

Yep, Feldman (whose Skrillex lookalike/vampire cruise ship waiter transformation now seems to be complete) is basically Kanye-ing and claiming he’s broke due to self-financing his super superior art. Which, by the way, has failed to succeeded not through any fault of his or a lack of talent. No sir. You know whose fault it is? It’s John Travolta’s.

Feldman’s missive is full of gems like this, including an almost worrying delusion that his videos have received hits due to their artistic merit as opposed to people wanting to see clips that have been pegged as some of the worst of all time.

But to summarize those for you, I’d have to read that affront to the English language again, and I refuse to put myself through that. So instead, I’ll blow your mind with some of the incentives Corey offered up – in his own ‘words’ and in ascending order of both monetary value and insanity.

Before you break out your dad’s credit card and drop 10 grand to secure a sweaty Corey Feldman in your backyard, we have some bad news – you’ve just missed your chance as the campaign closed on April 17th. How did ol’ Feldman do? Not quite as well as he’d hoped.

In a month, 451 backers raised $14,902 – which probably doesn’t even cover his monthly Rogaine expenses. It’s a tough break, but you can bet this won’t stop Corey. As he reminds us, “Goonies NEVER SAY DIE!” God bless you, Corey Feldman.
