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.”)

According to the ad:

“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.
