The World’s Newest Dream Job Involves Getting Paid $1,000 To Watch Every Episode Of ‘Friends’
by Connor Toole 15 hours ago
Based on the most recent data available, a sizeable chunk of people spend their typical night watching an episode of The Office they’ve already seen seven times because sometimes there’s no point in browsing aimlessly for 20 minutes for something to watch when you know the fire drill will never get old.
Consequently, people were quick to gnash their teeth, shake their fists at the skies, and sign pointless petitions when Netflix announced The Office would be leaving the platform when 2021 rolls around.
Shortly after that reveal, fans of the second-most popular show on Netflix suffered a blow when the streaming service revealed it’d lost the rights to Friends, which will no longer be there for you when it heads to a competitor at the end of the year.
As a result, you’ll have to pay more of your hard-earned money to watch Friends as streaming slowly becomes the new cable, but with that said, you also now have the chance to make a solid chunk of cash by watching the classic sitcom thanks to Frontier Communications.
According to WGXA, the company is currently accepting applications from Friends superfans who are willing to take on the daunting task of watching every episode of the show and tweeting about the experience.
In return, the lucky winner will get paid a cool $1,000 (in addition to some Friends merch and a year’s worth of Netflix) for what amounts to around 25 hours of work.
Here’s what they’re looking for in a résumé:
“We’re in search of the ones who know the quotes (‘PIVOT’), the hilarious scenarios (the beef in the trifle; the Holiday Armadillo), and all the little details (exactly how many sisters does Joey have? What is Chandler’s job?) that make the show the tried and true classic it is.”
If you think you check those boxes, you have until September 3rd to apply .
