There are a ton of comedy gold nuggets in this you tube video looking back on it, one being the "kick starter" failure he tried right before MG.
If you go to about the 30 minute mark he starts talking about MG and "having an engineering sample done" really soon. Mind you, this was 2012.
And he goes on to talk about Ben Heck and Pinball Wars. "Team Heck, really young guys, and they work for FREE"!
36 minutes in, Jpop shows a pic of himself with a dunce cap on and Ben Heck as Einstein!
John says, "I work 7 days a week building pinball"
And the selling of Zombie and Ben Heck begins. 49 minutes in the "Kickstarter" trailer for Zombieland.
Minute 56 summarizes why John failed and Ben made it.
"Using the PROC system". Q & A starts about 1:10. Some laughable answers in hindsight! The level of BS is amazing.
1:20 he tries to explain how all the vendors want you to buy at least 25 of something, that's how MG went from 13 to 19 with a few protos.
Says he actually sold 5 Do it yourself kits!!!! Ben and Jpop are coming to your house and stay for a day to help build it!!!!
Yep, the Q & A is priceless.
Don't forget the whole "Made in the USA" pitch John was making.
