A football fan from Knaphill is hoping to net his dream job – working at the World Cup in Brazil.
Jack Lee, 22, has created a comedy YouTube video in the hope of scoring the job of blogging, tweeting, and taking selfies as the action happens.
The competition, run by Titan Bet, offers one lucky football fan the chance to cover the world’s biggest football tournament.
The winner will receive a month’s salary, return airfare to Brazil, hotel accommodation, a laptop and Go-Pro camera, plus travel expenses to get around within the country.
Entrants had to produce a video of one minute or less, convincing the company that they are the perfect choice for the job.
The position, dubbed the Best Job in the World, will be decided using the combined popularity of the videos and panel votes.
Jack, of Florence Way, is close to completing an economics degree at the University of Surrey and dreams of spending the summer at the World Cup.
“I’m a football fan, I’m like most 22-year-olds,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to the World Cup.”
Jack’s video shows archive footage from England games, combined with a video of him wearing an England shirt and standing on top of two moving cars in Hook Heath.
As the cars separate, Jack falls from the car – a visual representation of the ‘pain and suffering experienced by England fans at the World Cup’.
In his voiceover, he said: “We’ve had our ups and downs. Our fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds.
“That’s what made us who we are today. Now I stand here before you.
“What you see is a football fan, weathered by heartache and triumph.
“Someone who dreams the unimaginable dream.
“Someone who dreams of representing the people at the 2014 World Cup.”
Jack’s friends and his brother helped him make the film, which is a parody of a Volvo advert, and has been viewed almost 1,000 times.
Jack, who works at The White Hart in Pirbright, said: “It’s not something you do every day,
“You have to keep your wits about you.
“We weren’t really going that fast.”
Asked how he would feel if he won, the former Winston Churchill School pupil added: “It would be quite surreal. I’ve never been to Brazil, I’d be buzzing.”
If successful, Jack will be responsible for writing a review of each game, plus writing a blog post daily, tweeting ten times a day and posting on Facebook six times each day.
He would also distribute free Titan Bet merchandise, and visit the beach each day.
The video has also been uploaded onto the Titanbet website.
