People Interview for World’s Toughest Job in Delightful Video with a Twist

04/17/2014 at 08:50 AM EDT

Having a rough week at work? Hey, it could be worse.

You could have a job where you have to stand up almost all the time, constantly exert yourself and work 135 hours a week (or more!). You could be stuck with no vacation time and no time even to sleep, and the workload will actually go up on holidays.

Oh, and degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts are required. And as for the salary – how does $0 annually sound?

A Boston advertising agency recently posted a job listing online for just such a hell job. Millions of people saw the job ad. Only 24 masochists applied. Their job interviews, held via webcam, were secretly recorded and turned into the video below.

It’s great to see their reactions to the interviewer’s questions, and there’s a wonderful twist at the end that makes everything worth it.

Turns out the world’s toughest job can be one of the most rewarding, too.

Is This Modern Chateau Kim & Kanye’s Over-the-Top Wedding Venue?

The Chateau of Versailles doesn’t have its own Darth Vader, and Marie Antoinette never actually strolled inside her palace’s aquarium lounge. But why should that prevent Kim Kardashian and Kanye West from having all that and more for their upcoming May nuptials should they so choose?

While in Paris earlier this week Kardashian and fiancé West tended to details of their upcoming wedding, which included a visit to Chateau Louis XIV.

The opulent estate, built between 2008 and 2011, is a modern reinterpretation of the traditional French chateau. It boasts 10 super-luxurious guests suites, its own nightclub, indoor squash court, sauna and health spa, indoor/outdoor swimming pool, movie theatre, gourmet kitchen and extensive wines cellars.

And when trying to keep up with the Kardashian clan and their love for all things lavish, this seems to fit the bill perfectly.

The inspired creation of businessman Emad Khashoggi, Chateau Louis XIV sits on an historic site in Louveciennes, 20 minutes outside central Paris, making it a perfect location for wedding guests – like Jay Z and Beyoncé, perhaps? – who might prefer staying in the City of Light.

Despite its modern luxuries, the chateau still has some classic touches. There is a moat after all!

But unlike any other moat in Europe, this one has sunken aquarium walls and couched panoramic seating. This jaw-dropping details inspired Kardashian and her walk-thru companion, Balmain designer Olivier Rouseteing, to snap a selfie.

Similarly, among the chateau’s many centerpieces are grand stairwells and terraced balconies is a three-story high cupola dome with a painted ceiling inspired by the one over at chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte (the site of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s 2007 wedding reception). Theirs, however, did not have climate control, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, air conditioning or electronic windows to shut out daylight or create romantic evening lighting with a one-touch control.

Oh, and did we mention the cornfield-sized garden maze?
