55DSL (55dsl.com) is looking for two young and gifted individuals to join its team. For 55 days, between August and September 2006, the task of these two “Junior Lucky Bastards” will be to provide the international young- and street-minded brand with a daily 55-second report on what’s hot, interesting and new from locations all over the world.

The two must be especially skilled in interacting with complete strangers, be willing to do stupid stuff in new places and be able to stay alive in any situation. In addition, they must be familiar with different media and arts, especially video and webcam reporting.

This unusual job opportunity was launched at the beginning of March through the 55DSL website and will be supported by additional banner ads through international portals such as MTV.com until May 31.

People interested in applying for the positions can send video applications showing their personality, sense of humor, lust for life and ability to live intensely at least 55 seconds a day.
