This is not a joke. Dish is looking for someone to watch the NBC sitcom. The winner gets $1,000 in cash, a Netflix gift card and a bag of 'Office' merchandise.

Not a bad gig for something you've probably already done for free; probably more than once. The winner gets $1,000 in cash, a Netflix gift card and a bag of Office merchandise.

You have to apply for this opportunity by Monday, March 16. Head HERE to fill out an online application.

Here’s the lowdown directly from DISH: the person who lands the gig will have 9 days to watch 15 hours of The Office (roughly 45 episodes). As you’re watching, you’ll need to complete a checklist that tallies the number of common tropes that occur throughout each episode.

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.
