Application of the Day: Guy Submits Snapchat Video Resume for Job at Snapchat

- -

Elski Felson wants a job at Snapchat, but instead of submitting a traditional resume, he created one using the app.

“Personally, I hate paper resumes,” he says in the video. “I don’t think a piece of paper can encapsulate anybody. So I decided to make you a ‘My Story.'”

He then goes through the requirements (presumably for this Community Support Specialistposition) line by line to prove his worth.

Watch him demonstrate that he is and expert spreadsheet wizard, multi-tasker and ugly selfie sender among the other qualifications listed on the page.

“I’ve been searching for a professional job for almost 8 months now. I’m totally fed up with the system,” he writes on Reddit. “Applying online over and over and hearing nothing back… it’s a disheartening crapshoot.”

Well hopefully Snapchat will catch wind of the video and at least grant him an interview for putting in all the extra effort.

Weasel Riding Woodpecker Inspires Hilarious WeaselPecker Meme

- -

Essex photographer Martin Le-May captured this epic moment on Monday, in which a weasel is soaring on the back of a woodpecker. It was Tweeted out by birder/wildlife photographer Jason Ward where it quickly went viral and had many people wondering if it was real or photoshopped. It’s apparently very real.

As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

He added that the woodpecker managed to get away, while the weasel wandered off into the grass.

Real or not, you can’t put a picture like that online and expect to walk away meme-free.

Here are some of the best responses from Twitter of the #WeaselPecker:
