One man in San Francisco is offering his service on Craigslist. Specializing in Ikea furniture assembly, he offers to put together the pieces all while entertaining the furniture owners by singing opera.
Assembling any furniture piece with less than detailed instructions is frustrating to say the least. One man in San Francisco is offering his unique service on Craigslist.
Specializing in Ikea furniture, he offers to put together the pieces all while entertaining the furniture owners. 27-year-old Charles Vickery is the man behind the ad. He promises to bring tools and his singing voice to the home of his clients.
Specifically he will sing opera or DJ, depending on the homeowner’s preference, and assemble the furniture. Vickery also pledges to take along gin, vodka, scotch, craft beer and whiskey with him to the house, so the clients will be able to join him for a drink while he's working.
Vickery recently branched out and opened his own business after realizing the task outsourcing company TaskRabbit would only allow him to perform standard jobs without any added fun extras.
Vickery stated “I think we all want more than just a transaction. We want something authentic; something that helps remind us that we're all in this thing together. And perhaps something with a touch of class."
Vickery also offers a super upscale tuxedo and White glove furniture building experience for an extra cost.
