The one where we invent a bad buyer request

Buyers request. 

The great fiverr forum uniter. 

To some, the buyers request section is a pile of garbage, sat atop a rotting animal carcass, layered in local dung and soundtracked by Muzak. 
 

For others it’s… well, it’s pretty much the same. 
 

We’ve all seen our share of insanely overreaching, marble mouthed, mad-cow nutty BR posts. But why should that stop us from contributing? 
 

I propose we create insane buyers request ad’s, share them with each other here and report on the progress - for those of us brave enough to really post them.  
 

Note: I have no idea about the rules concerning this. But something tells me that if I’m willing to pay for it - we’re able to post it. 

Or just play along.

 

It should look something like this:

“Songwriter needed for Stevie Wonder style music. Must sound like him. Must play like him. Blind applicants preferred. Must love polka. Must provide me three original complete songs (all instruments) as Stevie Wonder, doing a Randy Newman impression of a bluegrass singer. You MUST own a harpsichord. I will need the full rights and ownership of your voice. Access to an orchestra is strongly encouraged. Must provide sample of your songs by sending the full songs (I’ll totally pay you later). Must have video capability. Must agree with me that “The Many Saints of Newark” plays more like the echoes of a creator’s former genius, while lacking the agility or desire to harness those noises. Must provide pictures of your gear. Must provide pictures of your ID on your gear. Must provide your gear (we’ll send it back). Must own a grand piano. Also a Great Dane. Needed in less than 24hrs. Budget $5.00”

 

There it is. There’s my grand idea. What is the equivalent to your field?

$300 (to make it interesting and worth checking out). 

Irrelevant/vague gibberish in the middle.

At the very bottom mention that the price is for 300 unique items, not a single one.

(Optional, just to add insult to injury) As a reference, provide a link to a bougie art print website with items ranging from $200 to $1000 that include an officially NBA-licensed photograph of Dennis Rodman in his golden years.

Do you ever engage in ridiculous follow ups with these pseudo clients? For example, I saw a buyer request ad for “20 songs, all instruments, original compositions, 5 dollar budget…” yada yada. It asked for a sample. 
 

So, I sent them “Imagine” by John Lennon. 

And in my cover letter I’m saying, “I realize the piano has too much reverb. I’m also aware that from a modernist viewpoint, my vision of utopianized harmony doesn’t align properly.”

The client is writing back, “Dude. That’s John Lennon’s Imagine.”

I say, “Who?”

He challenges my unawareness of John Lennon’s work. I go on to explain that while I’m not familiar with John Lennon, I’ve been recently distracted by my concept artist girlfriend. Somedays, just to get some peace, we don’t even get out of bed.

This person is livid. 

Mind you, I’m actually recording songs for clients while this is happening. But I figure, if this guy can lower the value of my field - I can “sample” his resolve.

SEO post needed. Must rank #1 for keyword 'shoe' on Google, Bing, Ask Jeeves, and AltaVista. We know it doesn't exist anymore, but your article should necromance it back from the dead. Please include the word 'sock' in your response to show you read this. If your response doesn't rank at #1 for the keyword 'sock,' we will not hire you. No pay, but if you succeed, we will have a lot of new work for you at 1/10c per word and an IG shoutout to our 67 followers.

I took a look at the BR section last week for fun. It's a mess as always.

Looking for a person who can translate old Japanese text on a 500 year old scroll.
The scroll is about 50 feet long BTW and I have NO idea how many words there are on the darn thing.
My budget is $7, I think that's enough to buy a venti size Starbucks and a can of Redbull to keep you awake while you're working.

I need my two male and female versions of the same book formatted for both paperback and Kindle. Please only reply to this if you can 100% do a great job, and you will do a 4000-word sample. If you agree to do a 100% excellent job, but I find it is only 99.9% great, I will cancel the order. Please download and have a look at my book's text.
