Do you have a clown that’s been hanging around your neighborhood and is just… staring at people? Don’t brush them off yet; they probably just need a day job.
If you and your creepy clown neighbor happen to live in Antwerp, good news. Burger King Belgium is celebrating its fifth birthday in the city and is recruiting a clown to head its party on Wednesday, June 29. The new employee will be granted a 24-hour fixed-term contract.
The chain says exposure in the fast-food industry is required, though the employee won’t have to know how to prepare a Whopper. Intriguingly, it has also asked McDonald’s for a referral.
The whereabouts of Golden Arches’ mascot Ronald McDonald are unknown, as McDonald’s decommissioned the clown years ago—so there is a chance he may have been out of a job for a while. Although he’s the most famous clown around, Ronald would have to start from ground zero since this is an entry-level role.
The advertisement, created by Buzzman Paris, is a very real job listing on LinkedIn. As of the time of writing, 12 people have applied for the position.
