[PHYSICALLY-FIT MALE PROMO MODELS]

Good looking but rugged types are preferred. Must have an athletic build think Hugh Jackman. Must have the ability to stand for long periods of time. Must be a dependable team player. **Be available for all shifts (including a fitting prior to the event-date TBD) Flexible schedule a plus! Promotional experience a plus! Have an outgoing personality with exceptional people skills. Duties will include engaging with the public, relaying talking points, posing for pictures and distributing promo merch. Ambassadors will be provided a costume and may be in character.
Hey, I can stand up for long periods of time, have the body of former Green Bay Packer Gilbert Brown and I was thinking about Hugh Jackman not 20 minutes ago... wait, I think that means I have to look like Hugh Jackman. Never mind. Anyway, that's not a world into which many of us are privy, so I thought it might be worth posting here. (I'm assuming this is a public posting but if I'm violating something, that's my fault and I'll be happy to take it down immediately.)
