After announcing the inaugural S.S. Coachella cruise, festival organizers launched an official page to further push the Coachella brand on giddy hipsters ready to drop anywhere between $500 and $9,000 on a three-night cruise operated by their grandparents' favorite line, Celebrity.

Naturally, Internet trolls and music festival purists, who simply can't buy into the irony of a theme cruise, have taken to the site in an effort to sink the fun out of S.S. Coachella's maiden voyage.

Get it? It's a maritime pun!

Yeah, like, who the eff is James Murphy? And Pulp? That's the shit in orange juice. What a bunch of Nazis.

What the fuck does that even mean?

What'll happen if he does? Dude crowd-surfs in an inflatable raft. He's prepared, bro.

Technically, it's $500 for a 183-square-foot room without a view based on quad occupancy. That's you, and three of your bros in a space half the size of your dorm.

What's worse than a boat full of rich kids? For starters, a $799 VIP area at a summer music festival that doesn't include free food or drinks.

It's definitely not "fuckery," friend.
