An ad posted on Craigslist earlier this week is seeking someone to fulfill a rather unusual request -- follow Toronto Mayor Rob Ford around while playing a tuba.
The gig is an eight-hour shift of following Ford, and it pays $125. (“You must be able to provide your own tuba. A trombone would also be acceptable.”)
“I'm looking for hire a person to follow Rob Ford around for one day while playing a tuba. You must be willing to adhere to the following:
- wear a gopro camera (provided) to document the ensuing antics
- wear a shirt with @UnethicalHacks (provided) printed on the back for the entire day”
The post also includes a link to a YouTube video of a clip from Family Guy.
The Unethical Hacks website offers “clever hacks to get you through an unethical world.”
Here are a couple of their suggestions:
“Take a picture with your phone anytime you see a traffic jam, a flat tire, or funeral procession” and then “use them later when you’re late for something and have no real excuse.”
““If you get lousy service at a restaurant, you can sometimes get away with paying a negative tip…Write a negative tip and deduct it from the total.”
It sounds like the #FordTuba stunt is a go.
@lazarus7 It's certainly happening. It's getting a fair amount of replies.— Unethical Hacks (@UnethicalHacks) March 26, 2014
The response to the tuba ad has been fantastic. We are down to narrowing down the candidates. Very exciting to see this happen :)— Unethical Hacks (@UnethicalHacks) March 27, 2014
