If you're anything like millions of people around the world, you probably watch at least a season of The Office a week. After a long day at your own office, few things are as relaxing as witnessing the hilarious antics of the Dunder Mifflin crew, who you can always rely on to make you laugh—and perhaps appreciate your own job just a little bit more. Nearly 15 years after its original NBC premiere, The Office is still one of the most binge-watched TV shows around. And now one company wants to pay you for the time you already spend lounging on the couch waiting for the moment where Jim and Pam finally get together.
USDish, an authorized DISH Network retailer, wants to pay one lucky fan $1000 to simply watch 15 hours of The Office in nine days. Easy, right? Some of us already do more than that for free—but there's a bit of a catch, As the rules explain, the selected individual must take copious notes on the many popular tropes that pop up as they watch 45 episodes of the classic sitcom. The guidelines read:
"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."
So you basically you have to do a little work while watching and document it on social media, too. In addition to the $1000 stipend, the selected binge-watcher will receive some sweet Dunder Mifflin swag, including a Dundie Award, along with a Netflix gift card.
