You Already Love The Office—Now Get Paid to Binge-Watch it

Do you think watching The Office is cool? Do you think doing alcohol is cool?

It seems like yesterday Michael Scott hit Meredith with his car, and Jim put Andy’s phone in the ceiling. Believe it or not, The Office has been around for 15 years this March. To celebrate its anniversary, is teaming up with one die-hard fan to watch 15 hours of The Office for $1,000.

Got caught in a pyramid scheme with the son of the deposed king of Nigeria? This isn’t a case of Scott’s tots. When we say we’ll pay you $1,000 to watch about 15 hours, we mean it.

You were there when Jim proposed to Pam. You watched as Dwight “lit” the office on fire. You sat through hours of Andy’s “singing.” Now you can earn 1,000 bucks to watch The Office all over again.

We’re Looking for Someone Not Superstitious, But a Little Stitious

Do you sing in the shower, spend too much time volunteering, or occasionally hit someone with your car? We don’t care how “flawed” you are. We want you to apply!

Here’s the lowdown: the person who lands the gig will have 9 days to watch 15 hours of The Office (roughly 45 episodes). As you’re watching, you’ll need to complete a checklist that tallies the number of common tropes that occur throughout each episode.

For instance, how many times does Stanley roll his eyes at the camera? How often does Phyllis talk about Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration? The goal is to help us understand how often sitcoms repeat popular tropes. We’ll provide you with general guidelines to track your experience, but in true Kelly Kapoor fashion, we also want you to share your unfiltered opinions and reactions on social media.

Think Meredith is a little predictable? Wish Toby had more lines? Let’s hear it!

Don’t Declare Bankruptcy—Apply Now!

If you’re obsessed with The Office as much as Michael is obsessed with Ryan, we’ll hook you up with more than cold hard cash.

The benefits:

  • $1,000 in compensation (you know, in case you forgot)
  • Winner’s kit with The Office swag (which may or may not include a Dundie, “World’s Best Boss” mug, Jell-O, and a stapler)
  • Netflix gift card
  • Freedom to complete the “job” from wherever you please (no need to go into an office to watch The Office)

Just think: for $1,000, you could spend a night at Schrute Farms. Or you could buy a TV as big as Michael’s.

Think you fit the bill? Tell us why you’re the biggest Office fan in the world. Add a video submission to boost your chances. The best part? There’s zero drug testing or background checks involved (someone tell Creed). Just remember: you can’t apply on behalf of somebody else—identity theft is not a joke.

Apply below before Monday, March 16 @ 5 p.m. MST!
