Are you a patriotic American? Are you tired of all the flak that your country is getting? Do you find yourself yearning for the USA’s glory days? Do you want to feel great about your country again?
If so, then you are not alone! Star Wars fan Mike Koehler feels the same as you do, and he is willing to do something about it. He has an idea. He has a plan. He just needs people who can help him make it happen.
NERDS OF AMERICA:
We were once a country that made things: giantmetal cars, Hoover Dams, non-AutoTuned popular music.
But now we are stuck in an economy in limbo, surrounded by our Internets, our hipsters and our arguing politicians.
Nerds, I have a great idea to make America great again. We can show our brain power, our manufacturing prowess, our organizational skills and our geek-fueled eye for detail.
That idea: an AT-AT for America.
Now I have an idea, but no money and a total lack of mechanical aptitude.
That’s why I am hoping this project spreads like wildfire, inspiring the nerds, makers, geeks, motorheads, sportos, dudes, steampunks, Jedis, halfwits, greasers and geniuses to band together for one goal.
To build a fully fuctional, full-scale model of an AT-AT Imperial Walker from The Empire Strikes Back.
Impossible? Perhaps. Inspiring? Of course.
The AT-AT would become an instant monument of America’s obsession with popular culture and our ability to be awesome.
So do you have the same vision? Do you have anything to contribute to the project? You never know, you just might get to work with the likes of Adam Savage of The Mythbusters. Get in touch with Mike at ATATforAmerica@hotmail.com if you feel like volunteering your services.
