Get ready for some serious shenanigans.

Rejoice, bearfuckers! It took just 24 short hours for the comedy quintet Broken Lizard to amass the cash they need for a “barebones” sequel to their 2001 cult film Super Troopers.

Why a studio wouldn’t just sign a fat check to produce and distribute a surefire hit like Super Troopers 2 is something of a mystery. But in any case, the dudes needed to prove that another slapstick romp with highway patrolmen Thorny, Mac, Foster, Farva, and Rabbit was of interest to more than “just a dozen stoners.” Well, their Indiegogo campaign stats don’t lie.

Among the nearly 20,000 backers (and counting), one paid $35,000 to get an onscreen patrol car after filming, another shelled out $15,000 to hang out with Broken Lizard in a luxury skybox at a baseball game, and another threw in $12,500 for a chance to play director on set.

The best news of all? You can still contribute! Any additional proceeds beyond the minimal budget outline simply go toward a superior film: slicker effects, bigger explosions, and more outrageous cameos. Hey, maybe they’ll even split the movie into two mega-blockbusters.

Man, this is gonna be one hell of a mustache ride.
