Okay, so it's like this: WE NEED YOU TO AUDITION FOR THE REAL WORLD: PORTLAND, AND BE OUR SPY. Naturally, we'd do it ourselves, but we're all too old. Here's application info from last night's Craigslist posting:
If you're 20 years old or older and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, you could have a chance to be part of the next Real World!
We're looking for all types of people for a dynamic and exciting balance! If you have something to say, we want to give you an audience!
A conservative Portland State University student who's struggling with Portland's liberal culture?
A girl who prefers patchouli and hula hooping to tanning and clubbing?
A rabid Timbers fan?
A Hawthorne hipster?
Please submit a 5-minute casting video telling us about yourself (be creative!) to the email address in this listing. You may also upload the video to YouTube with the title "Portland MTV Casting Tape: [Your First Name]"
Please submit your video by August 1. We will be in touch with finalists for the next round of casting by August 15.
Even though I'm way too old, here's my audition tape.
