Ever wanted to get paid for being really, really, really ridiculously good looking—and hipster to boot? Brokelyn came across this Craiglist ad for an unnamed men's apparel start-up that seeks a "Handsome Hipster" model for e-commerce shots. Per the ad: "The ideal candidate will look good in photos, be personable, wear a 32" jean, M or L tshirt, and be somewhere between 5'10 and 6'1 and in the range of 160lbs to 185lbs. BONUS POINTS for facial scruff, tats and/or a good sense of humor."
Example photos in the listing include a close-up of major beard, a ruggedly handsome fellow in plaid, and David Beckham. If you or someone you know meets these requirements—or you are David Beckham—you could be taking home $150 for three hours of being hipster-hot. Not a bad deal.
