Working Weird Craigslist Jobs to Earn $965 for New York City Rent

  • Published: 14 May 2019
  • VICE's Will Tilghman tries to make his monthly rent of $965 by working weird jobs posted on the gigs section of New York Craigslist. After staging a photoshoot for a restaurant, screening a bad horror movie, trying a new deodorant, writing a bio for a nice mom, handing out newspapers, doing a timely impersonation of Lord Varys from “Game of Thrones”, and more, Will goes deep into the world of Craigslist to see if he can actually pay his rent by doing odd-jobs.

    That grill was not as clean as hoped for. At least he only had to pay $25 for the next guy.

                    Yea the dude asking you to wrangle snakes didn't sound sexual, he probably only had his snakes wrangled by women so he was just being truthful
