Mid-Day Musings – Get Paid to Watch “The Office”!

“I feel God in this Shark studio this morning. WOOOO!”

NBC’s “The Office” is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year — and one lucky fan can enjoy the show extra by getting paid to watch it.

The satellite TV provider Dish recently announced it will give one superfan $1,000 to watch 15 hours of the hit sitcom. According to Dish, 15 hours of the show amounts to 45 episodes. It’s not clear which episodes of “The Office” the winner must watch, or if the superfan will get to choose.

The winner can complete the marathon from wherever they wish and they have nine days to finish all 45 episodes. (Five episodes a day?? Piece of cake!!).

In addition to watching 15 hours of “The Office,” the fan will have to complete a checklist to count the number of common tropes that occur throughout the episodes. Examples listed on the contest site include, “How many times does Stanley roll his eyes at the camera?” and “How often does Phyllis talk about Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration?”

The chosen fan will also receive a swag bag of show-inspired gifts, including a Dundie award, a “World’s Best Boss” mug, some Jell-O, and a stapler.

Currently, the competition is only open to US residents who are at least 18 years old.

You can submit an application at USDish.com by explaining in at least 300 words why you’re the biggest fan of “The Office.” You can also submit an optional video, which can “boost your chances” of winning.
