Movie lovers, this may be your lucky day.

St. Patricks Day might look different around the world this week. But this year, for one lucky person, it will also mean scoring your dream job.

Zippia, a career resource company based in San Francisco, is looking for an avid movie watcher to watch Irish movies all day long on March 17 for $1,000. The ideal candidate will not only be a cinephile, but also a lover of Irish culture.

And you won’t just be watching any Irish film, you’ll be enjoying some of the best Irish movies ever made. The movie list includes "My Left Foot," "The Crying Game," "Far and Away, Circle of Friends," "Hunger," "The Departed," "Leprechaun," "Waking Ned Devine," "Angela’s Ashes," and "The Wind That Shakes The Barley."

Zippia predicts that watching all of these films will only take 17 hours and 23 minutes. However, you will also be expected to write a 1,000-word essay on Irish culture based on your experience with these 10 movies (apparently, it also has to be written in green font).

In return for their time, the right candidate will not only receive $1,000, but also a McDonald's gift card (good for 4 LARGE Shamrock Shakes), a family-sized ready-to-go meal of corned beef and cabbage, a copy of your favorite U2 album, and a family-size box of Lucky Charms (a perfect snack for movie binging).

Applications are open now through March 16, at 5 p.m. Mountain Time (7 p.m. Eastern). The application is fairly easy: Just include your name (first and last), your email, your occupation, and why you like (or dislike) your current job (and are the best fit for this one).

For more information or to submit an application, visit the job listing on the Zippia website.
