Nothing wrong with that!!  ^-^

Well had that been the only poor choice I think most of us would have looked the other way but it seems that their spending spree went a bit further than just a few lap dances.   ::)

How can these guys be so smart but yet so stupid?
Smoke em if you got em

That is a good question.

How can you raise an initial $2.5 million from Indigogo and then go on to raise an additional $11 million from venture capital funding and then go on to make these kinds of poor spending decisions? Unbelievable that they blew this opportunity when so many things went well and then you have this kind of personal spending that is extremely questionable.

Sounds like the Weller brothers (Marcus and Mitchell) got drunk on the power of the money. News stories that I have read say that investors asked the Weller brothers to step aside and the brothers were even offered a golden parachute but refused to leave.

Maybe this video will help ease the pain of those that lost money in the Skully crowdfunding! Very funny IMO!  ^-^



These videos using Hitler's bunker rant from the movie Downfall have been done on many subjects and I have even posted a couple here on the forum...

Those YouTube videos of that bunker scene are hilarious! Someone should send that one to the Weller brothers.

Ha ha! Love the bunker video.

I have heard that it is hard to wastefully spend a million dollars but these guys had $2.5 million and they did it. You got to hand it to them.  >:D

I stumbled onto this April 2017 article that asks the question, could Skully rise from the grave?

THE SKULLY AR-1 SMART MOTORCYCLE HELMET IS DEAD, BUT COULD STILL RISE FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE
https://www.digitaltrends.com/outdoors/skully-ar-shuts-down/

Don't get your hopes up. IMO Skully isn't coming back. The article offers nothing new (and it even looks like it it old news that was just published again with an April 2017 date). It just asks the question and goes over the history of the rise and fall of Skully.

In my opinion Skully did serious damage to crowdfunding. The fraud and misuse of funding that was seen with Skully has had serious repercussions on websites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. People lost a little trust seeing what happened at Skully.

My money is in LiveMap. And I have even put down a $500 deposit on their helmet.

I hope that the two brothers that founded Skully, Marcus Weller and his brother Mitch, are serving the jail time they deserve.
