That’s a lot of “D’oh!”
A UK casino site is hiring someone to watch every episode of “The Simpsons”– offering nearly $7,000 and a weekly box of doughnuts.
The “Simpsons” series analyst will help Platin Casino further investigate the “well-known phenomenon that The Simpsons has predicted major life events,” the gaming site said
Matt Groening’s beloved cartoon has been credited with foreseeing Donald Trump’s presidency and even the coronavirus pandemic, the site noted in its job ad.
“We thought we’d put The Simpsons to the test and see if, after analyzing every single episode, it can help us to predict the future,” Platin Casino said of its hope to “see what 2022 will hold.”
“The Simpsons Series Analyst will watch and analyze all episodes from the 33 seasons, along with The Simpsons spinoff movie,” the site said — predicting it will take eight weeks to get through more than 280 hours of footage.
During each episode, the professional will be asked to take notes on stand-out storylines” to help the company’s “team of prediction experts” evaluate the “probability of each one happening” for real.
It will pay the equivalent of $6,800, with around $100 in expenses to cover Disney+ membership to watch the show as well as wifi to stream it.
The new hire will also “receive a weekly box of doughnuts to enjoy whilst they work – a job benefit we believe that would be loved by Homer Simpson himself!” the ad said.
“We think the job is a unique and dream role for many – who wouldn’t love getting paid to watch TV, let alone The Simpsons?” Platin Casino said.
“Applicants from all countries are welcome,” the site said, as long as candidate are over 18, fluent in English and are able to access the show.
“A love for The Simpsons is desirable, but not essential,” the ad said.
