This Site Wants to Pay You $1,000 to Watch All 10 Harry Potter Movies (Video)

Accio dream job!

Since everyone is being encouraged to stay inside, you can bet there is a lot of binge-watching going on. And for Harry Potter fans, that means revisiting all eight films (plus the two Fantastic Beasts films) front to back for hours on end.

But wouldn’t it be nice if you could actually get paid for all the time you’re spending watching the Boy Who Lived vanquish the evilest sorcerer of all time? Well, good news.

EDsmart, a college ranking website, is looking for a real die-hard Potterhead to binge-watch the entire Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts film series. The candidate will not only get $1,000 for their time, but also $200 worth of Potter swag, treats, and Blu-rays of the films.

The chosen candidate not only will have to be the ultimate fan but also have an active life on social media and will be able to effectively live-tweet their marathon experience tagging @getedsmart and/or using the hashtag #getedsmart. Any prospective candidate must also be over 18 years of age.

Don’t worry, there are no weird worksheets or reports to fill out after you watch all the movies. All you have to do it get comfy on the couch, live tweet, and enjoy watching movies you were probably going to watch anyway while getting paid for it.

The 10 required movies add up to just over 25 hours, which means the candidate will be paid just over $41 per hour, based on the $1,000 stipend.

Swag and prizes include a $100 gift card to GrubHub, butterbeer, caramel corn & containers, Harry Potter jelly gummy candy slugs, Bertie Botts every flavor jelly beans & chocolate crispy frog (bundle of 3), Harry Potter Gryffindor snuggie, and Hogwarts alumni stainless steel insulated tumbler.

To be considered, fill out the online application on the EDSmart website. Applications are open until May 15.
