This company is hiring someone to binge-watch superhero films for £300


Pop culture online retailer Lost Universe is currently recruiting for somebody to binge-watch “geek movies and TV shows” and there’s some pretty decent perks too.

All that’s required for the role is to watch and rate three movies or TV episodes of choice from the latest superhero / Sci-Fi / fantasy releases.

The opportunity is a one-off project, which will pay one talented movie or TV fanatic £300 for their binge-watching efforts, gift them a £30 voucher to spend at and will also offer the ultimate binge-watching bundle too.

What’s included in the bundle though?

Well, you’ll get one year subscriptions to all the top UK streaming platforms – from Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime and Now TV Entertainment, all the way to YouTube Premium – paid for you, and five runners-up will also win a £30 Lost Universe gift voucher each, giving pop-culture fans even more reasons to enter.

The dream job winner will enjoy best-in-class entertainment, including the latest from the Marvel or DC Universe, all the 11 Star Wars movies and TV show the Mandalorian (on Disney+), all seasons of Game of Thrones (on Now TV), exclusive YouTube content with no ads, and much more.

How brilliant is that?

What are the binge-watcher job requirements?

Lost Universe is “the home of all things geek”, offering a wide range of fan favourite licensed merch, including the most sought-after limited editions and exclusives, so they are looking for someone who “lives and breathes pop-culture” for the fun role.

Job requirements list someone who obsesses over their favourite superhero / Sci-Fi / fictional characters, follows the latest movies and TV releases and reviews them with friends for fun, and even cites “owner of comfortable sofa/armchair for binge-watching preferred”, but the role is open to pop-culture newbies and veterans alike.

Sounds like a tough job indeed.

How can I apply?

It couldn’t be easier to stick an application in for the role, with the company asking applicants to upload a picture of themselves recreating a superhero / Sci-Fi / fictional character pose – either on Facebook or Instagram – mentioning the name of their chosen character in the description.

They will need to tag and use the competition hashtag #bingewatcherdreamjob. 

Applicants are free to snap a fun picture using social media filters, or improvising with stuff they have around the house, as Lost Universe will judge entries based on creativity and following the superhero / Sci-Fi / fictional theme and don’t require professional pictures, costumes or attire.
