The Internet's Pub Lives in a Little Slice of Heaven in Tatura, Australia

You may not have ever considered having a "chicken parma" on a menu named in your honor, but you will once you gaze upon this clever piece of marketing from an Australian pub.
Reddit user becness posted the following video, which features Bugs Ryan touting what may just be the internet’s first pub.
Of course, no such thing exists — although being able to pull a pint from a smartphone or computer screen would be the greatest innovation in the world.
However, the man featured in the following video is attempting to raise funds to fix up the pub at the Tatura Hotel, which is situated in the town of the same name in Victoria.
In this day and age raising awareness to your respective plight mandates some very clever and often hilarious production.
With that, we give you the video touted by Tatura Hotel’s YouTube channel:
As you can see, Tatura is simply amazing, boasting the “third best vanilla slice” in the area. Normally that kind of attraction would attract millions of tourists and their ensuing spending.
However, it seems this pub needs a bit of fixing, so it went to Indiegogo to create a crowdfunding campaign. The page is as creative as the viral video that already has over 30,000 views.
The goal is to raise $65,000 AUD in 40 days. And things seem to be going rather swimmingly already.
As of this writing, the page states that 146 people have helped raise over $10,000. Items like the chicken parma and the President of the Pool Table have already been taken, so you will have to look elsewhere to have your name enshrined.
Ryan states on the campaign page, “Well folks, it’s pretty simple. We've run out cash and the place needs fixing up so this town can have a decent place to have a pot of beer and a chicken parma.”
He continues, “We need to get our guest rooms up to standard, fix the balcony and get some better play equipment for the kids. And that's just the start.”
If you are willing to give, your name will be placed on one of several items and will be displayed at the pub as well as a selfie Ryan promises to share to make for easier social media boasting.
This is the first we are hearing of this magical pub that comes complete with a fat cat sitting on the mantle, but now, thanks to an extremely entertaining video, the entire world has a pub to call home.
