Warning, PR stunt ahead: On Monday, the upcoming Vegas show, “Puppetry of the Penis” publicly laid down a job offer for Zayn Malik, the guy who just quit the boy band One Direction.
“Puppetry of the Penis” is a non-sex adult show in which dudes make animal balloons out of their body. Producers on Monday offered Malik (via the media) “a job as a puppeteer.”
“The show will donate $100,000 to testicular cancer research for every week he stars in the show,” a news release (which featured a few double-entendres) promised.
After Malik quit One Direction, 480 employers in Britain reported that employees requested “compassionate leave” time to go home and cry all day, according to the British press.
The British press is not always 100 percent believable but it is always 100 percent readable.
The Guardian newspaper ran this headline, after he left the group to focus on his personal life: “Zayn Malik had it all. Now will he go back to the same old bedroom and the same old football posters?” (British readers can read long headlines!)
This human-puppet show, a hit on Broadway and legit stages around the world, makes its Vegas debut April 14 at The Jewel Box, adjacent to the Erotic Heritage Museum, 3275 South Industrial Road.
If you would like to try to get this job, and earn far, far less money per week than $100,000, you can email email@example.com to ask if you can try-out from noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
That’s mere hours from now. You better YouTube the demands of the job. They are considerable.
