Ask any “Friends” fanatic and they will tell you they don’t need much convincing to re-watch the hit TV show over and over and over again.

If you’re one of those fans who knows how easy it is to re-watch the gang’s hilarious antics, your next re-watch is about to get a whole lot more rewarding.

Best Value Schools, a college and university ranking website, is looking for five “Friends” fans to watch the first five seasons of the show — and they’re willing to pay each fan $1,000 for their “work.” You read that right: They want to pay you to watch the show you’re probably already watching again anyway!

Job duties include simply watching every episode of the first five seasons of “Friends” and posting about the experience on your social media accounts while you watch. Once you’ve watched them all, you’ll rank your favorite episodes and post the rankings online.

Amazon Prime Video

There are a total of 121 episodes spanning the five seasons, which add up to 44 hours and 39 minutes of your time. That means you’ll be making around $22 an hour, plus you’ll get some prizes, like a mug, T-shirt, blanket and a $100 DoorDash gift card.

So, who qualifies for this amazing dream gig? Well, if your life’s a joke, you’re broke and your love life’s DOA, that’s a good start. (Just kidding.) The only qualifications are that you must love “Friends,” be at least 18 years old and be an active social media user. To apply, simply fill out the form with your personal details and explain in 200 words why you would be the perfect candidate for the job. You have until March 31 to apply.

Need more “Friends” in your life while you wait to see if you’ll be chosen? Check out this Lego “Friends” set in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary.

The kit will bring Central Perk into your own home, right down to the small details like the big orange sofa, an armchair, a table, a cookie jar, coffee cups and a menu board. It even includes a mini Gunther figure with a broom to keep the coffee shop nice and clean.
