10 really weird services you can buy on Fiverr

Unless you either buy or sell your services online, you’re unlikely to have heard of Fiverr. For the uninitiated, Fiverr is a site where you can hire someone to do a task for $5. I can barely buy a lunch for the £ equivalent of this, so it’s unsurprising that the quality of tasks available is….varied. Among the usual suspects – illustrations, logos, really cheap blog posts, are some quite odd things. Very odd, in fact.

Here are a few of my favourites…

*Warning* One of these is slightly NSFW.

Carve your message into a banana

carve your name in a banana

You don’t even get the banana. It’s a picture of a banana. I don’t know why that particular detail irks me the most.

Say your name while exhaling smoke from a cigar

I will get my Pet Caterpillar to Eat Your Name in a Leaf for $5

This one is weird – but initially really impressive.

Until you realise the caterpillar is imaginary, and it’s really some dude with a pen, stabbing away at some leaves.

I will pop My Eyes Out and Read A Message aka Mr ZOOM

For the love of God, DON’T BROWSE THE OTHER IMAGES

I will face swap your friends or family face to make fun or prank or just pure entertainment

screenshot546Y’know what? I’d actually use this. You could spend time doing it yourself, but $5 is a small price to pay to gently troll your friends and family.

“I will record a video message with muppet puppet Animal “

Great in theory. Really awful in delivery.

“I will as Mr Britain say whatever you want for a voiceover or video testimonal”

screenshot548From the looks of things, this guy has had a lot of buyers. He also offers similar services in a ‘Harry Potter’ style. This is a man who understands how to appeal to an American market.

“I will create an awesome breakup video for you”

screenshot549

For those moments when breaking up with someone yourself is a chore.

“I will show you how your baby will look before its born”

screenshot550

Made for Facebook prank posts.

“I will attach your message to my alpaca and take a pic”

screenshot551

“Imagine the look on your friends face when they see a sign attached to an alpaca!” Quite.

Have you been on Fiverr? What’s the weirdest gig you’ve seen?
