Friends superfan could earn $1,000 for watching 60 episodes as show turns 25

Something for the weekend: Telecommunications organisation is offering the perfect side hustle for fans of the iconic TV show Friends. A lucky viewer who loves Joey, Rachel, Monica, Ross, Phoebe and Chandler could receive $1,000 (£823.20) for watching 25 hours’ worth of episodes, in celebration of the show’s 25th anniversary next month.

This dream job provides the ideal home working scenario, as the sitcom superfan will simply have to watch 25 hours’ worth of Friends, equating to roughly 60 episodes, between 16 September 2019 and the show’s official anniversary on 22 September 2019.

The chosen Friends fanatic will be required to live-tweet from their (presumably lilac) living rooms, tagging, throughout their TV marathon, finishing the 25 hour stint with a selfie on 22 September, alongside their own posse of pals, naturally.

In addition to the pay packet, the lucky fan will also receive a year-long Netflix subscription, which will help ensure that they can successfully complete the required viewing. Those already subscribed will instead receive a Visa gift card.

In addition, the fan will be awarded a Friends Fandom Fun Pack; this includes a t-shirt, Central Perk mug, popcorn and food treats, hopefully not inspired by Rachel’s trifle.

To be in with a shot of claiming this unique opportunity, is looking for someone with an active Twitter account, who is over the age of 18 and a US citizen or permanent US resident. Furthermore, applicants are expected to be die-hard Friends fans, able to deliver quotes and scenarios easily, as well as being organised and detail-orientated.

All entries must be submitted by Tuesday 3 September 2019. One applicant will be chosen to complete the TV marathon on Tuesday 10 September 2019. The winner will be formally announced on Monday 16 September, which is also the start date for the viewing task.
