Warner Bros. Holds a Google Hangout Job Interview with the Joker

Published on .

To promote Warner Bros.' video game, Batman: Arkham Origins, Sid Lee Paris came up with a fun campaign last year that let actual people interview for a job -- a hunter to track down Batman. The hiring manager? The Joker, of course.

Applicants could submit a job application, then get interviewed via Google Handouts by the Joker. 10 contestants won a chance to meet him for a final in-person interview with another baddie, crime lord Black Mask. In the end, player Samuel Vauthier emerged the winner and signed a 2,000 euros/month contract to "hunt down" Batman.
