The struggle for money is real, particularly in Toronto. But have you ever considered you might be able to make a decent wad of cash just by drinking a glass of milk? It might sound udderly bizarre but Jigsaw Casting's Toronto casting call is looking for lots of people to take part in an upcoming milk commercial and they're willing to pay some big bucks.

This is your chance to grab a group of friends and audition to appear in a dairy ad that'll be seen by everyone across the country. Not only that, you can earn around $1,500 in the process.

According to the posting, this campaign highlights individuality and diversity. They are looking for all kinds of people from all walks of life, including dancers and artists.

"People with style, big confidence and who radiate an energy of their own. All shapes, sizes, backgrounds and walks of life are welcome," reads the posting.

The initial application stage closes on Friday, January 24, with filming set for February 12-13, so you'll need to moooooove quickly to be in with a shot.

So what exactly is wanted here from applicants?

Well, Jigsaw has five roles available for the ad, some for individuals and others in groups.

The first opportunity, Nighthawks, asks for four friends between the ages of 19 to 25. The group should be made of "artists and creators who are energetic and look as though they would hang out all night and into the early morning." In the commercial, they will be painting a mural.

The second, the Master, is "an androgynous individual, in their mid-to-late 30’s, who radiates a sense of calmness and peacefulness."

The third role, the kids, will be five girls who must be aged 12 or 13.* Each should have a "confident, powerful attitude on their own that is amplified when they are all together."

Intriguingly, these girls also need to be comfortable riding a bike and/or electric kick scooter, if possible.

Next comes the Dancer, a female between the ages of 25 to 35 who "should have years of experience in contemporary/interpretive/modern dance."*

The last and final group, the Feast, will include five friends between the ages of 25 to 35 "eating together at a table, in a lively, energized manner."

Some of those descriptions might sound a little cheesy, but there's plenty of potential. If you don't happen to have a crew willing to try out, group roles are also open to solitary submissions.

If you're here for the money, they plan to pay you "approximately" $1,500 per person if you're selected. As you might expect, though, you must be able to safely consume dairy products to be in with a shot.

Interested? The full posting lists what is needed in order to apply.

If acting is your calling, or you just want to milk this opportunity for all it's worth, take a chance and try it out!

In a city like Toronto, casting calls are always occurring. For example, a recent posting called for a look-alike crew from "The Office."

An opportunity to earn four figures for starring in a milk commercial, though, probably does not come around that often.

The listing notes no acting experience is necessarily required, although any applicant must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident.

Make sure to enter your initial submissions by January 24 at 10 a.m. If chosen, you must also be available on January 27 or 28, February 3, 10, and 12-13.

Holy cow!
