For fun, Zack Brown thought he'd try to raise $10 on Kickstarter to make a potato salad.

In just a few short days, the Columbus, Ohio, man has raised $38,000 from almost 2,400 backers.

Brown's original offer of saying donors names aloud while making the salad — for a mere $1 donation — has now been upgraded to the idea of renting a hall and hosting a potato salad party, to be live-streamed for all his donors.

But with the attention the bizarre campaign is unexpectedly getting, Brown posted on the Kickstarter page: "I honestly don't know what is realistic anymore."

The campaign still has 25 days to go.
