Recently, there have been a number of unique opportunities to make some money or win some cash that have popped up, including guessing the Mystery Flavor of Oreo for $50,000. However, cookies are not the only way people can snag some extra cash, as there is currently an opportunity for Stephen King fans to get $1300.
For fans of King, his books, and the movies made based on his books, there is currently a job opening that would let one lucky person watch 13 Stephen King movies before Halloween. According to LifeHacker, Dish is offering one lucky fan the chance to watch 13 movies for $1300, but of course there is a bit more to the position than just watching the films.
Not only does the lucky fan have to watch 13 Stephen King movies, but they must also be detail oriented, as they will have to share their experience with the world. Whether this means creating a vlog post, posting to social media, or something else, it is important that whoever takes on this task can handle sharing their thoughts with Dish’s followers, as well as their own.
Beyond watching the Stephen King movies and sharing the experience with people, the person chosen for the job will also be required to wear a FitBit so that they can monitor the fan’s heart rate, both during the viewing and even while they are sleeping afterwards.
Of course, Dish is not leaving the choice of which Stephen King movies to watch up in the air. Instead, they have made a list of movies that they believe will leave the person chosen for the job “screaming for more.”
The Stephen King movies that Dish has chosen are:
- Children of the Corn
- Carrie (the original or remake)
- IT (again the original or remake)
- Pet Sematary (original or remake)
- The Mist
- The Shining
- Salem’s Lot
On top of the $1300 and the FitBit that Dish will be providing, the lucky person chosen for this job will also be given copies of the 13 movies for their collections, as well as Stephen King paraphernalia, candy, popcorn, a flashlight, and a blanket for a proper viewing experience. Plus, Dish wants the person chosen to be able to see a 14th Stephen King movie in theaters, so they will be providing a gift card to be able to see either “Doctor Sleep” or “IT: Chapter 2.”
For fans interested in this pre-Halloween position, applications are being accepted now. Interested individuals will need to write a 200 word essay about why you are the perfect person for the job and what you think you will gain from this experience. The deadline to get the essay in for consideration is Oct. 15, which gives interested fans almost a month to plan how to convince Dish they are perfect person to watch all of these Stephen King movies.
