(Newser) – If you like Friends and you like tweeting, here's the perfect job for you: Frontier Communications will pay one lucky person $1,000 to watch 25 hours of the sitcom and livetweet while doing so, in honor of the show's 25th anniversary this year. That's about 60 episodes, and the task must be completed by Sept. 22 in order to coincide with the 1994 premiere date, Today reports. "Once you have completed your marathon, tweet a picture of yourself celebrating the day of September 22 with your own friends (be sure to tag @FrontierCorp in your post) and we will send you your hard-earned reward!" the telecom company says in its job posting. "Could there BE a more perfect gig out there?"

In addition to $1,000, the winning applicant will get a one-year subscription to Netflix and a "Friends Fandom Fun Pack consisting of a Friends t-shirt, Central Perk mug, popcorn, and treats." The application, available here, requires applicants to choose a favorite Friends character (in addition to the core six "friends," Gunther is also an option) and answer the hard-hitting question: "Who do you think was right about The Break—Rachel or Ross? Why?" (Netflix subscribers will soon have to say goodbye to Friends, though.)
