Let’s be honest here. Despite the plethora of toxic productivity schedules preached by TikTok, most of our post-work ‘5 to 9’ hours are synonymous with bottomless binges on the video-sharing app. Be it eye-rolling and scrolling through questionable trends like vabbing or falling for NFT scams in the name of side hustles, TikTok always ends up taking the cake on our weekly screen time report.

But what if you could actually earn some hard cash from your mindless scrolling sessions on the app? If “professional TikTok watcher” has always been on your list of dream jobs, meet Ubiquitous: an influencer marketing company looking to pay $50 an hour for someone to binge-watch TikTok videos for a sum total of 12 hours—earning a whopping $600 at the end of the feat. No cap.

With three days to scroll to your heart’s content, the perfect candidate Ubiquitous is looking for should not only be a TikTok lover, but also someone who has an active social media presence. “We want you to share the best TikTok videos you encounter on your binge across your other social media profiles like Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, while tagging Ubiquitous,” the company wrote on its website.

Once your binge marathon is complete, Ubiquitous will ask you to rank your top ten favourite videos in exchange for $600, a $50 Uber Eats gift card, a $50 Target gift card, a cell phone holder, and a 12-inch ring light and tripod.

“Absolutely anyone can apply as long as they have an account on the app,” Senior Director of growth Jeremy Boudinet told the New York Post. “We’re just looking for someone who uses the app fairly frequently and has an active social media presence of their own.”

Have you got what it takes to be a professional TikTok watcher? All you need to do is fill out the application form on Ubiquitous’ website with 100-200 words making your case. Include the reasons why you love TikTok and why you feel like you’d be the perfect person for the job. If you win the prized position, the company will then send you basic guidelines to get started. But when it comes to selecting your favourite videos to share, you’ll ultimately have the power to pick from the arsenal.

There is no entry fee and the closing date for applications is 31 October 2022. Only one winner will be selected from the pool of eligible entries and notified by email within seven days of the closing date. So what are you waiting for? Given the fact that binge-watching has proven to have actual health benefits, I urge you to run, not hot girl walk to secure the bag.
