How to become a nerf officer

Most people have probably grown out of their Nerf obsession; if you haven’t, you could become the new NERF Chief TikTok Officer.

Growing up in the 80s and 80s will have inevitably exposed you to Nerf – a brand that offered you and your friends hours of fun throughout your childhood.

Most people have grown out of playing with toys, but nostalgia will do strange things to you – like make you buy a Space Shuttle LEGO set, for example.

Now, Nerf will offer a lucky adult (in terms of age only) the opportunity to create TikTok videos and get paid to do it.

No, I’m not talking minimum wage, but rather $10k per month – for three months. That’s $30,000 for three months of work. But that’s not all. The “Chief TikTok Officer” will also be given “a massive amount of Nerf products” to play with. If that doesn’t get you drooling – I don’t know what would.

You’re wondering whether this is just a PR stunt, right? It might be, but there is really a job you can apply for – and interview for.

The lucky person (over 18 only) will need to create 10–12 TikTok videos each month, meet with Nerf’s marketing team every week. And that’s about it, apart from the fact that the position is fully remote.

As the position’s description explains:

“We are looking for a creator who is a Nerf enthusiast, a TikTok extraordinaire, has good comedic timing, and knows how to use a ring light. Is your heart racing? Does it feel like we are speaking right to… you? If you are fluent in this language, this might be a perfect match. We think this job is so cool we were thinking of quitting ours to apply, but we’re still learning the Renegade dance so…”

If you love Nerf and TikTok, you’re seriously creative, you’ve got good vibes, and a sense of humor hit apply now.

To apply, you’ll need to post the perfect Nerf-related TikTok video using the hashtag #NerfApplication and tag @nerf between 3/26 and 4/2/2021. Of course, you’ll also have to follow @nerf on TikTok, as well.

Finally, you’ll need to be 18 or older – and located in the US.

This never came up during career day.

As social media networks continue to grow and expand, companies are trying to keep up with trends. Sometimes, that means hiring someone to play with toy guns on TikTok.

In the job listing, which says that it was written by “desperate millennials trying to appeal to Gen Z, Hasbro wrote: “It’s the Nerf blaster for me (did we do that right?). In any case, we need your help – because you, yes YOU, can become the next Nerf CTO (Chief TikTok Officer). The Nerf CTO is a big title with some bigger perks – Nerf blasters for uh… research purposes, real money, and bragging rights for three glorious months. If this sounds like a dream, that’s because it is.”

The official job requirements say that the CTO will be responsible for creating 10 to 12 “approved Nerf related TikTok videos” a month for the official Nerf TikTok account. The CTO will also apparently still be able to post and comment from their own personal account while working as the Nerf CTO.

I do have a Tik Tok account, and I do ok. If you are reading this and aren’t following me on Tik Tok yet, be a pal and click that “+”, yeah?

So in the 10+ years since I started covering the brand, Nerf is finally offering a paid position on their social media. It’s not for very long, but who knows what someone will make of it? If anyone else gets it, I do hope it’s Sophie, aka Nerfers101. She’s one of the few active people in this community who is truly passionate about the brand and isn’t a slimeball.

Good luck to everyone, of course I will make a video, and this is one of the craziest opportunities I’ve seen in awhile. I may have additional thoughts once the selection is made, but we’ll see.
