A company will pay you $50 an hour to party without drinking.
Now that the new year is upon us, after overindulging during the festive season, many of us will have opted to endure Dry January, which challenges people to steer clear of alcohol for a whole 31 days.
However, because alcohol is present in so many social situations, this is no mean feat, which is why this job from Swedish-based company Gnista Spirits could be the perfect motivation.
After a hard night of partying, this Scottish man woke up in a stranger's house:
Needless to say, Gnista Spirts doesn't produce alcohol, but non-alcoholic beverages, and they are on the hunt for two "highly experienced party animals" to get their boogie on... without booze.
It's a pretty sweet offering too. If selected, you'll get a night out in Stockholm, no expenses spared, featuring dinner, pregame and, of course, clubbing. You just can't touch a drop of alcohol.
"Gnista is newly launched and proud to offer the only non-alcoholic spirit that truly resembles a fine spirit," the job description reads. "Taste-wise this statement has been verified by a number of established bartenders and industry experts. Now it's time to put the feeling to the test."
For your time, you'll be compensated $50 an hour, and Gnista Spirts will put you and a friend up in a hotel, Downtown Camper. They'll also cover the cost of dinner and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks.
"The Gnista product development department needs first-hand intelligence on how Gnista consumption affects the desire to dance until dawn, inspire you to let loose (using your tie as a headband?) and if it gives you that pizza-craving Netflix bingeing (placebo) hangover," the company said.
Other requirements expressed by Ginsta include anyone who "lives for the weekends" and it's a bonus if you're "single and ready to mingle". Oh, and if you're already sober, then I'm afraid, you're not eligible.
If this sounds exactly like the job you need to see you through Dry January, you can apply here.
