You Can Now Get Paid $1,200 to Watch Harry Potter Movies
Potterheads will be thrilled to hear the news of HBO Max’s upcoming Harry Potter reunion special, titled “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts”, set to be released on Jan. 1, 2022. The much-anticipated reunion will honor the two decades since “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” first hit theaters, and now, superfans have the chance to get paid to rewatch the movie.
USDish has created every muggle’s dream job, offering one lucky “employee” (or winner) $1,234 to watch their five of the franchise’s movies. Not a huge Hogwarts fan? Not a problem. There’s also the option of choosing any five of your favorite childhood movies instead.
With many childhood classics getting reboots or celebrating notable anniversaries this year, the team was curious to find out if the original films still make us feel the same as when we first watched them growing up. The “nostalgia dream adventure” will require one lucky candidate to rewatch five of their favorite childhood movies and report back on whether the viewing experience differed from when they were a kid. There’s even a handy guide to help you pick your options if you’re struggling to choose.
As a reward for their time, the winner will receive a $1,234 payment, along with streaming access to the five movies of choice. In addition, there will be snacks galore from the decade they were born in—an essential—along with extra nostalgic goodies to make the viewing experience even better.
Those who’d like to apply for this exciting opportunity should fill out the application form by Dec. 17 at 12 p.m. MT. The competition is free to enter and you must be 18 or over and a U.S. resident to enter.
