Vine Job Postings Go to the Dogs

The qualifications listed in this job ad are anything but typical:

Potty trained;
ShutterstockOfficeDogNeutered;
CUTE;
Relatively quiet;
Can’t reach my lunch;
Boundless enthusiasm for staring into the distance at absolutely nothing whatsoever;
Vineable;
Hypoallergenic;
Gets along with other office dogs;
Familiar with Woof, Arf, Bark, Sniff, Deploy! (WABS);
Computer science degree from Ivy League school;
Can catch midair multiple remote controlled helis concurrently.

Then again, it’s not every day that a major media company puts out a call for an Office Dog. The permalink says /woof, the Vine copy screams wink.

All in all, a great way for the six-second video purveyors to refresh their brand message in this hot, summer month. Doubly so for those perspicacious enough to scroll down and click “Apply now.”
