CHICAGO, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- A Chicago resident who originally posted on crowdfunding site Kickstarter to raise $8 for a chicken burrito from Chipotle has already raised more than $650 from almost 170 backers.

Chicago resident Noboru Bitoy originally offered up his services to test the burrito to see how tasty it was on a scale from "No" to "Wow!”

“Just how delicious is a chicken burrito from my local Chipotle?” Bitoy wrote. “I will find & display the answer in a creative presentation!”

Bitoy gave the burrito a "Yum!"

People were so enamored with Bitoy’s burrito-eating prowess that they kept donating money. He expanded the campaign to include "a test to truly see how the burrito flavor is changed when it is a leftover meal” and then opted to “consume 24 variations of the Chipotle Chicken Burrito” and display the results in a graph.

For his final goal, Bitoy offered to really take the plunge and consume a burrito while skydiving.

“The other night I was thinking, ‘How much more delicious would a Chicken Burrito from Chipotle be… if I was plummeting from the heavens?”’ he wrote. “That's right, Kickstarter community. I am going to make an infographic detailing just how delicious a chicken burrito is when eaten during a SKYDIVE.”

If he raises enough cash to cover the stunt, Bitoy will be taking to, and falling out of, the air after skydiving season opens on March 29.

(No word as to whether he'll be listening to the Flying Burrito Brothers during the dive.)
