Satire website crowdfunds £1,000 to ‘send Bob Dylan a nice bed’

Clickhole claim to have shipped the item to the singer-songwriter

Clickhole, a satire website poking fun at the likes of Buzzfeed, has successfully raised over £1,000 ($1,500) to send Bob Dylan “a nice bed”.

The website, an offshoot of The Onion, launched a GoFundMe page two weeks ago, outlining their strange aim.

A message on the crowdfunding website read: “For over 50 years, Bob Dylan has been one of the most celebrated figures in American music… He has given us everything while asking nothing in return, and for that, we think it’s about time that America said ‘thank you’ for all his contributions to our ears and our hearts.”

“Hence, we have started this GoFundMe page with the goal of purchasing Bob a brand-new Sleep Number® adjustable bed. This includes a classic c2 Sleep Number® mattress, a sturdy modular base, and an intuitive wireless remote for adjusting the bed’s firmness.”

Having raised a total of $1,555, the website recently claimed that they’ve shipped the bed to Dylan. “Bob’s bed officially shipped over the weekend,” a message posted to Facebook read.

“Also, the beautiful Bob Dylan duvet cover that we purchased with the extra funds was delivered this morning and signed for by someone named “F Lamb”—perhaps the pseudonym Bob uses when he travels? Who’s to say?!?
Thanks again for all your support! We couldn’t be more excited. ‪#‎BedForBob‬”
