Slacker rock musician Mac DeMarco is looking for your dank memes. His fan club—started in 2015 and run by DeMarco, his mother Agnes, and his manager—is looking for a capable assistant.

The listing is posted on his website with an awesome You Can’t Do That on Television/Double Dare-inspired sliming background. The Canadian-born singer and guitarist is searching for someone who can get out to Brooklyn, New York, “at least one day a week.” The ideal candidate has experience with WordPress, Mailchimp, and “great attention to detail.” In submitting materials, prospective candidates are asked to “please send [a] cover letter explaining experience, resume and your dankest Mac meme or Mac related gif.”

Given his wild fans, there should be some takers.

Here’s his latest video, for “The Old Dog”:

DeMarco follows up 2014’s critically acclaimed full-length Salad Days with This Old Dog, which releases on May 5 via Captured Tracks. It should be plenty dank.
