Relive Your Childhood Movies For a Chance to Win Big

With Stranger Things taking us back to the eighties, Loki giving off major seventies vibes, and Fear Street returning us to the nineties mall life, it’s no wonder we’re all feeling a little nostalgic. So what if we told you you could revisit the movies that shaped your childhood—and get paid to do it? If that sounds like you, it’s time to return to the world of flying luck dragons, knuckle puck shots, and Goonies that never say die.


The team at USDish is offering one lucky applicant a chance to watch five childhood movies of their choice for a chance to win $1,234. Ready to go on a nostalgic adventure? Applying is easier than a sweep of the leg, so don’t hesitate: put yourself in the running today!

Think you fit the bill?

Do you love continuing Daniel and Johnny’s rivalry in Cobra Kai? Are you anxious to revisit the land of the Goblin King? Do you have Hocus Pocus ready to play even during the summer months? If so, you might be the right candidate to take on this adventure.


We’re looking for one person who’s willing to revisit their favorite childhood films and tell us all about it. No degree, background check, or drug test is required to complete this adventure. However, applicants must be 18 years or older and a US citizen or permanent resident to apply.

How to get started

You’re an ideal candidate if you take detailed notes on how each movie made you feel as a kid versus watching now as an adult, share the nostalgic moments on your social media and, of course, party on, dude.


For an even more excellent adventure, invite your kids (if applicable) to watch your favorite five with you.


You’ll have 15 days to complete your trip down nostalgia lane, and, remember, you choose the five movies to watch for a chance to win $1,234. It’s so easy, it’s—dare we say, inconceivable! You have a better chance of being selected if you submit a video in your application, so keep that in mind when you apply below.
