Not too long ago, I put out an article that told you all about some of the craziest things that you can find on Craigslist. However, I recently found out all about Fiverr – a website that offers odd jobs to people for only five bucks a pop (with the occasional paid extras) – and as you may be able to guess, a site like this is going to offer a lot of similarly strange services.
So I did what anyone would do, and I jumped right into finding some of the weirdest stuff that Fiverr has to offer. I can assure you that there are a lot more strange services than what you see here, but let’s just take a sample, shall we?
Yes, my friends. This service offers exactly what it says it does, and it’s only five dollars. With reviews such as “Seller has some serious moves!” and “Please be my weenie wife”, you know that this Fiverr is a class act. If you ever have the desire for a woman to dance for you in a hot dog costume to any song of your choice, then this is your girl. No word on the legalities of the song usage, though. (But really – it’s a dancin’ hot dog. Who cares?)
Maybe hotdogs aren’t your thing, but at the same time, you still like costumed characters. Well, let’s make it a banana instead. This young lady will go out of her way to put on a banana costume and shout out whatever your heart desires on video. Just imagine a banana-ed “Fus Ro Dah!” (If any of you happen to get this bold banana to give a shout-out to our managing editor, Mark O’Neill, and put the link in the comments, I would probably be your best friend.)
Feeling lonely? Trying to get back at that one ex? Is your mother wanting grandchildren? Well, this service can’t exactly help you with the last one, but it might be able to help the first two! On Fiverr, you can find quite a few merchants who will be your Facebook girlfriend for a while, and on top of that, they will write mushy messages on your wall where everyone can see! This was one of the few that had reviews, so it looks like she will deliver. Granted, I can’t guarantee if it’s actually a girl behind the profile or not.
I’m sure that there are a ton of you that are absolutely dying to have a photo of yourself with Edward Cullen. To be real, I’m not a fan of Twilight in the least, but hey… if that’s what you’re into, then alright. This is definitely the optimum Fiverr deal for you. However, even if you’re not a Twihard, I can almost bet this would be to hilarious prank to pull on a friend.
Much like one of our articles about spying on your spouse (which does present a question of ethics), this Fiverr deal is an edgy one at best. The merchant will find your boyfriend or husband online and flirt with them in an effort to see if they are faithful. With this offer comes a report as to whether or not your significant other took the bait, and after that, it’s really up to you as to what happens next. This is a little more serious than most of the Fiverr deals, so I don’t know exactly what to think about it.
Ever wanted to creep out your friends? Yeah. I know I have. (That may explain why I no longer have any friends.) This is the perfect Fiverr offer to cause quite a bit of confusion. All you have to do is tell the merchant what to say, wait for the reaction, and then embrace the absolute chaos that will (hopefully) ensue.
Did you just catch your boyfriend cheating via Fiverr? Did that fake “girlfriend” become too legit? Fortunately, we have one last Fiverr deal that will… “solve” that problem. This merchant offers the not-so-clean service of breaking up with your SO, and although some might call you cowardly for going about things this way, at least it will get done. All things considered, I wouldn’t do it, but to each their own.
So after viewing these services and discovering that people actually buy them, I did myself a favor and joined Fiverr. Am I going to make anything off of it? Maybe. Could it make me enough money where I could quit my job? Probably not. However… it seems like crazier the offer, the more likely people will want it.
