So you know that potato salad guy on Kickstarter? Well he's just totally sold out to advertising and the community is none too pleased.

Zack 'Danger' Brown is learning the fickle nature of the internet the hard way after posting an update which involved him having some 'AWESOME' potato salad at a local Columbus restaurant and then using a local Columbus photo studio to take a picture.

As you can see from the image below it's more than a little shameless and honestly, we get the impression he's not used to this whole 'public limelight' thing.

Well as a result of his sponsored posting the community that has so far pledged over $40,000 is threatening to start revoking their pledges, with some even mentioning rival potato salads.

Potato salad seems like something that's utterly stupid and yet extremely heartfelt so here's hoping Zack sees the error of his ways and starts looking at spending some of that pledge money on making a potato salad.
