Perhaps this is one for Helen Keller Services For The Blind? It seems a misguided and/or quite ingenious DC-area parent has come up with a plan to possibly scheme his/her son into having an extra-special birthday. That lucky son, who is set to turn 16, is evidently a huge fan of Lil Wayne. The thing is Wayne’s “schedule will not permit him to make it,” as the parent states in a Craiglist ad which calls for an impersonator. But here’s where it gets interesting:
“My son is blind so you do not need to look like the rapper just sound like him. I understand he grunts and mumbles a lot. I don’t care if you are 67 and Jewish if you can sing the songs you’re hired. Money is not an issue.”
The humble petitioner goes on to ask for video documentation of applicants’ best Weezy portrayal — “serious inquiries only,” of course. You can read the actual posting here as long as it’s available, and decide for yourself whether the parent plans on letting the birthday boy in on the plot. Thanks to Bomarr for the tip.
