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.
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.
I’d imagine fans of 50 Shades of Grey are the main buyers of this Fiverr gig by Princess Blix. Or ex-smokers.
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.
For the love of God, DON’T BROWSE THE OTHER IMAGES
“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”
For those moments when breaking up with someone yourself is a chore.
“I will show you how your baby will look before its born”
Made for Facebook prank posts.
“I will attach your message to my alpaca and take a pic”
“Imagine the look on your friends face when they see a sign attached to an alpaca!” Quite.
