  • Published on:  5/13/2019
  • VICE's Will Tilghman tries to make his monthly rent of $965 by working weird jobs posted on the gigs section of New York Craigslist. After staging a photoshoot for a restaurant, screening a bad horror movie, trying a new deodorant, writing a bio for a nice mom, handing out newspapers, doing a timely impersonation of Lord Varys from “Game of Thrones”, and more, Will goes deep into the world of Craigslist to see if he can actually pay his rent by doing odd-jobs.

    +Kasparas Visockas BeyondSorrowYYY People who correct other's spelling and grammar online must have some major insecurity issue's. As long as you can understand what they are saying why do you care? Not everyone has a perfect understanding of English, even if it's their first language not everyone has the benefit of an education. People should be judged on their opinions, not on the quality of their spelling.
