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.

    Why impose that limit of only one-time gigs? I've relied on Craigslist for gigs and jobs many times in the past and it's come through for me in one way or another. I got fired on a Tuesday but was working by that Thursday thanks to Craigslist.
