You Can Now Get Paid $1,234 to Watch Your Five Favorite Childhood Movies

With Ghostbusters back in theaters and another Indiana Jones on the way, there's never been a better time to indulge in the movies that shaped your youth.

Even better still, a satellite TV channel is looking to pay one lucky applicant $1,234 to re-watch their five favorite childhood films as part of an epic movie marathon.

That works out at just over $246 per movie to watch the likes of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Aladdin or maybe something a little more modern like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

USDish will supply your five chosen movies, leaving you with the enviable task of watching them all from the comfort of your couch and getting paid for your time too.

According to, applying is, to quote The Karate Kid, "easier than a sweep of the leg."

"We're looking for one person who's willing to revisit their favorite childhood films and tell us all about it," they said. "No degree, background check, or drug test is required to complete this adventure."

In addition to the privilege of getting paid to watch great movies, the successful applicant will receive a "swag bag" containing $350 worth of goodies including personalized candy from the decade you were born and something to keep you warm while you binge.

After watching all of your chosen films, you'll be expected to fill out a report comparing your experience of each movie now with what it was like seeing it as a child.

USDish explained: "You're an ideal candidate if you take detailed notes on how each movie made you feel as a kid versus watching now as an adult, share the nostalgic moments on your social media and, of course, party on, dude."

"For an even more excellent adventure, invite your kids (if applicable) to watch your favorite five with you," USDish added. "You'll have 15 days to complete your trip down nostalgia lane, and, remember, you choose the five movies to watch for a chance to win $1,234. It's so easy, it's—dare we say, inconceivable!"

To apply, you need to be over 18 and a U.S. citizen, and fill out a form choosing your five favorite childhood films as well as explaining, in 2,000 characters or less, why you are the ideal candidate. To have an even better chance, you can also submit a video as part of your application.

The deadline for entries is Friday, December 17. The successful applicant will be contacted via email by USDish on Wednesday December 29. To apply, click here.

Meanwhile, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is out in theaters and features several notable cameos from the stars of the original film but some are still wondering—will Rick Moranis be making an appearance?

Moreover, fans of all things nostalgia have been given a first proper look at Lily James and Sebastian Stan playing Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in the upcoming Hulu series Pam & Tommy.
