You Have To See This Guy’s “Breakfast Club”-Inspired Application To Work At BuzzFeed

Don’t you forget about him. posted on

1. Matthew Cloutier is a 19-year-old student at the University of Michigan. He wants a job as a video intern at BuzzFeed.

 

In place of a CV, his application took the form of a video in which he sings “BuzzFeed, will you hire me?” to the tune of Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”.

 

5. Highlight of the video? It’s so hard to choose between the bit where he pours coffee on his head, and the bit where he plays a euphonium.

 

And why did he choose that particular song? Well, he says, “Who doesn’t like The Breakfast Club?”

Matt has also created a Twitter account and established a hashtag, #hirematt, in a bid to make his application go viral.

9. You are awesome, Matt. I salute you.

 

12. Those lyrics in full.


Buzzfeed, will you hire me
I’m unemployed for summer, twenty fourteen
Tell me what you’re looking for
When an intern walks in your door

I really enjoy your website
All your articles help me waste time
Will you just look in my eyes
I need a job and I’m not telling lies, aww

Buzzfeed, will you hire me?
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Buzzfeed, will you hire me?

I want to make videos
For your company. To make you money.
So much money!
Money fallin down

Just wanna be an intern
I’ll make you coffee. So much Coffee.
Coffee pouring
Coffee pouring down

Don’t you try and pretend
You won’t hire me. You’ll lose in the end!
I’ll work hard, you don’t even know
The crazy ideas this cranium holds.

Buzzfeed, will you hire me
I’m unemployed for summer, twenty fourteen
Tell me what you’re looking for
When an intern walks in your door, aww

Buzzfeed, will you hire me?
whoa whoa whoa whoa
Buzzfeed, will you hire me?

When you’re hiring!
Will you choose my name?!
When you’re hiring!
Please, please choose my name
