Love “The Office?” Dish Will Pay You $1K to watch for 15 Hours!
Now this is a marathon I can get behind!
My wife and I love the hit TV show The Office. We've watched our way through all nine seasons, and it's basically our go-to anytime we want to watch something but aren't in the mood for starting something new. With so many memorable episodes and lovable scenes, it's hard to get tired of watching the ridiculous antics of Michael Scott and his Dunder Mifflin crew.
While my wife and I have never watched for more than just a couple hours at a time, that may soon be put to the test. Dish is looking for someone who's not "superstitious, but a little stitious" (to quote Michael Scott). According to the contest website, the person chosen will have 9 days to watch 15 hours (or roughly 45 episodes), completing a checklist "that tallies the number of common tropes that occur throughout each episode." What kind of tropes? Well, for instance, how many times does Stanley roll his eyes at the camera or how often does Phyllis talk about Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration? Why? The goal, according to Dish, is to understand how often sitcoms repeat popular tropes. Along the way, the chosen viewer gets to share their unfiltered feedback and reactions (in true Kelly Kapoor fashion) on social media.
In addition to the $1000, the die-hard Office fan will receive a winner’s kit with The Office swag (which may or may not include a Dundie, “World’s Best Boss” mug, Jell-O, and a stapler) and Netflix gift card.
