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.

Wrangling snakes and cleaning pipes, possibly 3 nights you’ll make the rent, idk, maybe say you’ll get on your knees to do work. Hey that works too... hehehe

This video is actually important to society.

I believed (and I'm sure that millions of others did too) that if someone was financially desperate they could take some random craiglist gigs in order to survive financially that month. It honestly bums me out somewhat that thats not the case.
Also he emailed between 300 to 400 people about gigs and they all didn't reply. Like what the hell...?

You do realise compared to London prices ..... for a 1 bed flat in London your looking close to £1500 - £2000 a month and that's the pound BTW not dollars ..... i pay £1550 a month and thats in battersea lol knife crime central lol , shitty areas still cost alot of money ...... $965 is that a month or every week , cos if every week then your about same sorta price as us but if its $965 a month your getting a bargain my friend

$965 for a month's rent in Brooklyn New York! And it's 3-br! Damn, that's so cheap compared to Sydney! A 1-br apartment anywhere NEAR Central Sydney costs more. A 3-br? Forget it, not even 25km out.

You know at the end of your video you say these jobs are weird strange and the last one you say embarrassing when you are cleaning a grill I don't understand why people always find that cleaning is embarrassing or a lower demeaning job because if we had a world where everyone was too good to take a cleaning job could you sit for 5 minutes and think of how disgusting this world would be you wouldn't be able to go to a bathroom at a restaurant you would be able to sit down and have dinner at a restaurant you wouldn't be able to go to school the people behind those jobs do not get the recognition that they should cleaning jobs are highly important and they should be paid more than most jobs why don't you take on a job like that and let's see how demeaning you feel I just think people who degrade people for doing some sorts of jobs think they're up on a pedestal and I don't like that
