If you're stuck at home with nothing to do, why not make some cash while you're at it? This casting company is paying thousands for stories about social distancing in Canada for a commercial and there's no experience needed. Staying at home has never felt so good.

The GROUNDGLASS casting company is looking for "real people" to be featured in their commercial series. The only qualifications are that you need to over 18 and a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

"Are you doing something to help others? Has this challenging time helped you reconnect with your family? Have you figured out an innovative way to maintain routines or business?" reads their website.

They're asking you to share stories, tips, and self-isolation life-hacks. They just need to be raw and unscripted experiences.

All filming is done at home, through Skype, Facetime, or your own recordings. They don't have a set timeline yet but they're looking for people to apply fast.

We're all bored out of our minds at home anyway, might as well spend some of that time on a lucrative side hustle.

In order to apply, just fill out this form and include your funny stories in self-isolation, pictures of you or the people living with you, and a short video of yourself telling your amazing story.

If you get shortlisted, you'll also need to go through a criminal and social media background check.

It's definitely tough being forced away from your friends and family.

But people around the country are finding ways to fight off isolation, whether it's singing from the balcony or practicing their sweet dance moves.

And though it's hard, at least you're keeping indoors, unlike others. Officials say social distancing is one of the most effective ways of stopping the spread of COVID-19, and they say it's everyone's duty to stay at home.

With everyone cooped up indoors, things are bound to get weird eventually. Thank goodness we can channel our weirdness into this creative outlet and make cash while we're at it.
