While we’re all trying our best to keep up social distancing, and some are even in isolation, there’s a lot of TV to catch up on. Yes, you could spend your time taking up a new hobby, or working out, but at the end of the day we all love nothing more than getting a big bag of snacks and binge-watching. I’m sorry, but it’s true.
One particular set of movies is a staple for passing the time – the Harry Potter series.
A company called EDsmart wants to pay fans $1,000 each (plus prizes!) to watch the whole set of movies, plus the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them spin-off.
The company’s website reads: “Here at EDsmart, we realize that most people could use a little magic right now, and we love Harry Potter,
“Most of the Muggle world is struggling with self-isolation and not having a normal routinelike were all living in the cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging,
“We realize that at this time, we cant all head to Diagon Alley to stock up on goods nor Hogwarts to be with our friends,
“So, in light of all thats going on out there and in our homes, weve decided to pay up to five Muggles, Mudbloods and magic folk $1,000 each to watch every Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts moviethe Ultimate Dream Job,
“The right candidate will be chosen by the Sorting Hat.”
So who exactly can apply? Well, you have to be over 18, be a social media user, and have the right to work in the US (sorry to all our UK fans!).
They continued: “The person were looking for is not only a Harry Potter fan, but also an active, outgoing social media personality who would be thrilled to live-tweet or live stream their Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts movie marathon experience while tagging @getedsmart and/or #getedsmart,
“The only requirements are that you are 18 years old or older, eligible to work in the United States, and an active social media user.
“If youre hired, simply sit down in your favorite movie-watching location, watch the movies, grub, and post it on your social media platform or live stream,
“Once the magical marathon, live-tweeting and live streaming, etc. are over, well have you rank each movie and post it online.”
