Buckle up! The tenth installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise will hit theaters on May 19, and if you can’t get enough of the high-intensity movies, FinanceBuzz has a gig for you. The finance independence website is looking for someone to watch all 10 movies and receive $1,000 in return, but there’s a catch.

Why will FinanceBuzz pay someone $1,000 to watch all the “Fast and Furious” movies?

While watching over 20 hours of Vin Diesel and his crew tearing up the streets (and space) in different heists and missions might seem ludicrous, there’s a reason for it. The fine folks at FinanceBuzz want to save people money on big expenses, like car payments, and they want to know what those high-flying, insane car crashes in those movies could do to your auto insurance costs.

Here’s the catch: When watching the movies, the participant must take inventory of all the accidents. Remember when Toretto’s Dodge Charger gets hit by the semi-truck at the end of the first movie? That’s one. You’re welcome.

As you can imagine, that’s a lot of work. Fortunately, in return for all your eagle-eyed antics, you’ll receive $1,000 plus another $100 to cover all the streaming, movie ticket, and food costs associated with completing this endurance race of a job.

Here are the qualifications for taking on this assignment

If you think that you’re up to the task, you must be able to rent or stream all of the movies from the saga at home and watch the forthcoming “Fast X” movie in the theater. During each movie, you’ll need to take note of any car accidents that result in damage. This includes counting the number of accidents, the extent of the damages, and the cars involved. When completed, your notes will be used in an upcoming FinanceBuzz article.

We’re not sure how well you can take notes while sitting in a dark theater. Then again, that’s why you’re getting paid the big bucks to do it. Well, at least you can pause and rewind the movies while watching them at home.

If you have what it takes to watch all of the movies and count the car crashes, you can apply on the FinanceBuzz website. There’s a form that you’ll need to fill out before May 19, 2023, at 11:59 EST. FinanceBuzz says the chosen applicant will be notified via e-mail by May 26, 2023, and they will have two weeks to finish the assignment.

However, if you’re as hardcore as Dom Toretto, you’ll watch all nine movies back to back and then hightail it to the theater to finish the final movie.

(We don’t actually recommend doing that. But if you do, you’ll really know the meaning of “family.” Or a car crash. OK, please don’t do that.) Good luck!
