You Have To See This Guy's "Breakfast Club"-Inspired Application To Work At BuzzFeed
Don't you forget about him.
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)".
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.
You are awesome, Matt. I salute you.
