No, this isn't a prank. On Thursday, musician, performer, and party-enthusiast Andrew W.K. announced his plan to fix America's "broken" two party political system by establishing the Party Party. According to W.K., the Party Party will be "Not one based on the rhetoric and dogma of the Democratic party or the Republican party, but one that transcends both."

W.K. claims that he's already filed all the necessary paperwork with the Secretary of State, and now he just needs (many thousands of) signatures on a petition. He's asking supporters to visit his website (http://www.thepartyparty.us/) and sign the online petition.

The website's About Us section claims that "Most people have become too caught up in the bickering of our news cycles to realize that we ultimately desire the exact same things: reliable access to education, healthcare, and a sense of social equality." Well, you can stop right there, Andrew, because no, both parties don't want the exact same things, no matter how you look at it. But actually, don't stop, Andrew, because this is kind of funny. What are you up to, dude?
