Weezer to be offered $10 million to split up

We have heard of the pledge schemes, hell some of us have pledged money towards artists in order for them to create a new album or EP but one man, James Burns, and not many others are aiming to collect $10 million and give it to Weezer in exchange for them quitting.

Here is the pitch being made by James, for your money, to stop Weezer performing on The Point:

I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s.

But this isn’t about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers.

Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since “Pinkerton,” and what happens? Another pile of crap like “Beverly Hills” or “I’m Your Daddy.”

This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now.

I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year.

I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.

I’m sick of hearing about whatever this terrible (and yes, even if you like the early stuff, you should be able to admit that they are wretched now) excuse for a band is up to these days.

If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought “Pinkerton” pitch in $12, we will meet our goal.

I beg you, Weezer. Take our money and disappear.

Having launched his pitch only one day ago, he has received $194 at the time I write this to get rid of Weezer for good and never hear of them again.
