Here at the Daily Dot, our writers know the joys of being paid to watch TV. If you’re a Friends fanatic, you too could soon know that joy.
If you have the stamina to watch 25 consecutive hours of the NBC sitcom, FrontierBundles.com is willing to pay you $1,000. That works out to $40 an hour, which is certainly a decent payday in this economy.
FrontierBundles.com is looking for someone to watch 25 consecutive hours of the sitcom in honor of the series’ 25th anniversary next month. You also need to tweet throughout the experience, so there is some work involved. If you are chosen, you will also receive a year subscription to Netflix and some Friends swag for your trouble.
The job listing reads:
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Friends’ debut, one lucky candidate’s task will be to watch 25 hours’ worth of the show (roughly 60 episodes) before September 22, 2019. As you work your way through the show, you’ll also be required to live-tweet throughout your experience. Once you have completed your marathon, tweet a picture of yourself celebrating the day of September 22 with your own friends (be sure to tag @FrontierCorp in your post) and we will send you your hard-earned reward! Could there BE a more perfect gig out there?
This job is for any self-proclaimed die-hard Friends superfan looking to prove their salt. 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 have what it takes to be the Frontier’s one true Friends fan, you are likely “organized” and “detail-oriented” and if you’re already influencing on social media, that is a plus. And not that this is a problem for you, but you don’t need to worry about a drug test or background check. You just have to be over 18 and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
Applications end Sept. 3, so don’t let your application become a will they/won’t they situation.
