THE ‘NEXT EPISODE’ ROLE ($55,000+)

NextEpisode.png

In July 1999, Andre Romelle Young (more commonly known as … Dr. Dre) released “The Next Episode”.

This was the third single from his second studio album – featuring Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Nate Dogg.

Since that time … and as a result of his shrewd business sense, Dr. Dre moved on to producing albums for other artists and launching the wildly successful Beats by Dre headphones.

In May 2014 … Dre sold the Beats business to Apple … for a reported 3 billion dollars! Needless to say, he is now (by far) … the Richest Man in Hip-Hop!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing, really!

THE ‘BEE’S KNEES’ ROLE ($70,000+)

BeesKnees.png

The phrase “the bee’s knees” gained popularity in the 1920’s.
No one really knows, how the term came to be.

Some claim it has to do with the fact that as a bee travels from flower to flower (then, back to the hive) … it carries pollen on its legs. Naturally … the sweetness of that pollen is collected around their knees.

Others maintain it stems from the phrase ‘the Be all, and End all’ … which, when shortened and said quickly … sounds like you’re saying the phrase … “the B’s ‘n’ E’s”.

In any event … while we don’t know the origin … we do know it stands for something which is highly regarded.

What does this have to do with our latest role?
Well … nothing at all!

THE ‘PUZZLE’ ROLE ($50,000 – $55,000)

puzzle role

In 1980, the Rubik’s Cube made its worldwide debut … and became an instant craze.

Two years later … the record for solving the peculiar puzzle stood at 22.95 seconds!
29 years later, Feliks Zemdegs would break the 6 second barrier … solving the puzzle in a mere, 5.66 seconds.

Many believed that record would very likely stand the test of time … and breaking the 5 second wall was impossible. That is … until Lucas Etter arrived on the scene.

In November 2015 …  14-year-old Lucas Etter, obliterated Zemdegs’ record while also breaching the 5 second barrier! Etter solved the puzzle in a mind-blowing 4.90 seconds!

So, what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s most recent mandate?
Well … not much really.

That said … while you won’t be expected to solve the Rubik’s Cube … you will be expected to help our client put the pieces together with their rapid expansion efforts!

THE ‘MONEY BOX’ ROLE ($45,000)

moneyboxrole

Victor Lustig was born January 4, 1890 in Hostinné, Austria-Hungary (present day Czech Republic). Lustig was an extremely skilled con-man and is infamous for being “the man who sold the Eiffel Tower – twice”!

He’s also known for originating the “Rumanian Box” scam – aka the Money Box.

Lustig would approach an individual with a ‘machine’ he claimed could duplicate any currency placed inside it. The ‘machine’ was a specially designed mahogany box with two small slots and a number of levers and mechanisms that had to be carefully maneuvered to produce the duplicate currency.

To convince the person the Money Box truly worked, Lustig asked them for a $100 bill.
He would insert the bill into his device, and explain that the machine would take 6 hours to create the copy.

When the 6 hours had passed … Lustig would reach into the machine and magically produce a perfect ‘counterfeit’ bill (which was in fact, a real $100 bill he had pre-loaded)!

Lustig would then accompany the individual to a bank to authenticate the note.
Once the person was whipped into a frenzy (thinking they’d struck it rich) … Lustig would sell them the box for thousands and thousands of dollars.

Before delivering the machine … Lustig would pack the Money Box with 4 real $100 bills … which would provide him with 24 hours to get out of town … before the individual realized they’d been conned.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Absolutely nothing!

We’re sure you’d agree … Victor Lustig certainly didn’t care about providing his clients with a wonderful experience … but our client certainly does!
