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.

Excuse me. Your rent is $965 in New York! I live in Georgia. In the suburbs. Not the city. And my rent is $1000 a month. I live in the cheapest apartment complex anywhere near me.
Vice: hey we can't pay you enough this month, but we could make a cool video about you trying to get enough money to live!
Woo Woo
The sound of him cleaning the grill 🥴🥴🥴

You might have made enough money if you accepted some of the snake wrangling jobs.
