Cobra Commander, supreme leader of the fictional terrorist organization COBRA, is seeking funds on Kickstarter to help rebuild Cobra Island and his secret headquarters after a loss to G.I. Joe. The Kickstarter project is not (unfortunately) real. It is in draft form and not official. The project and video was created as a joke by the clever Los Angeles-based sketch comedy group, Dumbshit Mountain. You may also enjoy the comical list of backer rewards.
Here is an explanatory letter written by Mr. Cobra Commander himself:
We are COBRA, a worldwide organization devoted to making advancements in science and defense technology.
Recently our home and secret base of operations was destroyed in an attack by the terrorist militia known as G.I. Joe.
So after discussing a plan of action with my colleagues Destro, Dr. Mindbender, and our business analysts Tomax and Xamot, we reached the conclusion that we need $94 billion to fully restore Cobra Island and the COBRA organization.
