    I was looking for something on the net and found this site http://www.electricbass.com/classifieds/classifieds.cgi

    where I spotted the following advertisement for a bass player....

    AGRESSIVE AND UGLY BASSPLAYER NEEDED FOR MUSICVIDEO
    AGE: 16-35, MALE
    THE VIDEO WILL BE RECORDED IN SWEDEN AND NORWAY JULY OR AUGUST 2006,
    TOTAL 6 DAYS OF WORK. VERY WELL PAYED FOR THE RIGHT PERSON. ALL
    EXPENCES COVERED INCL AIRTICKETS, HOTEL ETC.
    I AM LOOKING FOR ATTITUDE MORE THAN MUSICAL EXPERIENCE.
    RACE OR LOCATION IS IRRELEVANT. THE BASSPLAYER WILL HAV THE MAIN FOCUS
    IN THE VIDOES, AND WILL BE THE ONE THAT WE WILL BUILD THE CONSEPT
    AROUND.

    YOU MUST BE IDEALLY 5'10 OR TALLER, (NOT A MUST), AND BE VERSATILE IN
    YOUR MUSICAL TASTE. THIS IS AN UNIQE CHANCE FOR THE RIGHT PERSON. IT
    COULD BE EXTENDED WORK LATER ON, ALSO CHANCE OF TOURING IN 2007.

    PLEASE E MAIL ME (THE DIRECTOR OF THE VIDEOS)chri-oee@..., AND
    SEND A DETAILED DESCRIPTION, CV ETC. DO NOT SEND SOUNDFILES. ENCLOSE
    PICS IF POSSIBLE.

    LAST DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: 1ST OF MARCH 2006.


    Hmmmmm..... might be worth an e-mail:D
     
  2. That is definitely one of the more unusual 'bass player wanted' ads I've ever seen. Does sound pretty interesting though.
     
  3. How many people go to a foreign country, not knowing the person they're meeting, to record a music video though?

    Especially when they are more concerned about how you look. Seems pretty odd to me...
