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.

adj. Describing a thing, person, etc, that is ridiculous/lame, but awesome/enjoyable at the same time. In other words, something that's so bad, it's actually good. It usually applies to something that is genuinely trying to be good, yet is ridiculously bad. So bad that it's enjoyable. While the appreciation for the quality of a certain thing is subjective, it must be universally enjoyed for its ridiculous/lame aspects to be considered moonshot.
