The World’s Greatest Job Will Pay You Thousands Of Dollars To Binge-Watch TV And Where Do I Sign Up?
Over the past few weeks, social media has been flooded with pictures of sad kids in oversized backpacks grappling with the fact that the carefree days of summer are over once again as a new school year commences.
If only they knew what was waiting for them on the other side.
As Mark Hoppus, the sage philosopher at the helm of blink-182 once said: work sucks.
However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to.
In the past year alone, the job market has been flooded with opportunities most people could only dream of, with companies offering to pay you money to:
- Drink around the world
- Review luxury resorts in Mexico
- Test out hot tubs
- Travel across America to eat BBQ
- Sample chicken nuggets
However, as attractive as all of those jobs might be, they also require you to actually leave your house.
Now, what if I told you that you could get paid thousands of dollars without having to get off of your couch?
Is that something you might be interested in?
If so, I have some great news.
According to Mental Floss, the kind folks at How To Watch are in search of one brave soul who’s willing to take on the burden of watching 100 hours worth of television over the course of October in exchange for a cool $2,000.
Here’s the job description:
As the website’s professional binge-watcher, you will be responsible for judging the quality of seven major streaming platforms—including DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Philo, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV—via subscriptions courtesy of HowToWatch.com. You must watch roughly 14 hours of programming from each service, and everything you tune in to needs to be live.
In the immortal words of Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland: Ohhhhhhhh… hello.
How To Watch is specifically looking for someone with a strong social media presence and made it very clear that no drug test is required, which is always a nice plus.
If you’re interested, you can fill out an application any time before October 4.
