Kickstarter has made countless dreams come true and changed the way many companies do business. But over the past few years, it’s also become bloated with scams, half-baked product pitches, and brilliant, well-intentioned ideas that somehow never see the light of day no matter how much money we sink into them.

There’s a reason most of us at Gizmodo groan when an email’s subject line includes the words “COMING TO KICKSTARTER!” Oh boy, Kickstarter! Can’t wait to learn about a game-changing tote bag that’s only $20,000 away from disrupting the, er, tote bag market. I’m sure our readers will also love hearing about this magical product that they can’t buy now or maybe ever!

This video does a nice job summing up all that is hilariously wrong with Kickstarter today.
