For those who take relaxation extra seriously, the Dutch underwear brand Pockies may have a job for you.
In exchange for $500, the brand wants someone to wear its pocketed boxers while lounging on a couch for five hours. After, they’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire about the experience and the underwear.
The job description specifically calls for someone who has “no ambition whatsoever,” “lack[s] initiative,” and “[has] two buttcheeks.”
The brand is seeking ‘the ultimate couch potato’ to test the comfiness of its underwear
The tongue-in-cheek listing explains that the Dutch company is seeking to understand “the American standards of comfort,” seemingly poking fun at the stereotype that sometimes Americans can be lazy couch potatoes.
“For us, it is interesting to see what our American friends think of Pockies,” said Pockies’ head of HR, Pip Giesberts, in a press release. “Besides that, we need the applicant to be very lazy. That will generate the best results.”
The chosen person is encouraged to spend the afternoon watching TV, eating snacks, and taking naps.
In addition to the $500 payment, the chosen applicant will receive "loads of snacks and takeout" and "a week's supply of Pockies," according to the contest page.
US residents who are 18 and over can apply online through October 31
Those who are interested can apply by filling out a brief form with their contact information and a note describing their own "motivation," or lack thereof.
Pockies also asks applicants to share their confirmation emails to their own Instagram stories and tag the brand's Instagram handle.
The contest is open until October 31, and the winner will be announced on November 1.
This isn't the first time companies have paid someone to test products
In July, the snack brand Whisps offered one lucky cheese lover $2,000 cash, a $1,500 stipend, and $1,500 worth of product in exchange for their opinions on the brand's cheese boards.
