All This Brooklyn Woman Wants For Her Birthday: A $1,500 Rainbow

You might think this lady's got a lot of gall to ask for a $1500 birthday gift via Kickstarter, and you would be right. Except, what Jessi Arrington wants for her 33rd birthday is a rainbow. Yes, really, a rainbow!
This Brooklyn-based designer is throwing a massive bday party on April 28. And if you love rainbows, too, you can join. Consider her Kickstarter page to be your official invitation: "We should have the BIGGEST, MOST COLORFUL PARADE YET! So big in fact, we will officially record the parade as the World's Largest Rainbow Parade."
We'll spare you all rest of Jessi's exclamation points (it's not even noon yet), and just give you the gist. For Jessi's big day, she's invited anyone who's interested to join her on the Brooklyn Bridge. Dressed head-to-toe in your favorite color, you can stand huddled in a crowd to help create the world's largest human rainbow. Plus, there will be a marching band, rainbow tattoos, and balloons. Yes, balloons!
If this sounds like your idea of fun, go ahead and check out Jessi's colorful birthday rainbow video. But, be sure to have your second cup of coffee'll need it. (Gothamist)
