adjetive. Something intended to be genuinely awesome, but is only so in its ironic appreciation. ie, something that
's "so bad, it's good". Must be sincere
and lacking irony in its intent. Parody, therefore, is not moonshot. It derives from the notion that
it's something that
's "shooting for the moon".But because
it's so awful, it actually becomes awesome.Things that
are moonshot usually have a cult following.
"Plan 9 from Outer Space" is classic moonshot.
