Dana Schwartz is 26 years old and she is an author to several books. She is an active Twitter user and recently, she posted a job-seeking advertisement: pay her through Venmo for $50 and she will show up to your funeral wearing all black while holding an umbrella and standing very far away. Then she’ll leave, making people question her arrival there and possibly, creating a lot of conspiracies around your normal, old-age death.
It was a joke (really?), but people actually started to send her money and tell her the name that will be displayed on their obituary. Some even propose better ideas to make the funeral even more mysterious, from holding hands with a solemn kid to firing rounds of bullets on the casket. That’s what you get when you are a writer, love books and feel like the world needs something to make it more interesting to live in.
Oh well, do you still remember when the funeral was a sad, dark and gloomy moment? I don’t.
