SA rapper icon Jack Parow created a social
media storm this week with the launch of South Africa's
laziest job competition.
Parow, who proclaims he has a ‘PhD in chilling
during the day', urged students and recent graduates seeking
well-paid holiday employment to apply for SA's laziest
summer job, where languishing in the garden in a deck chair
for 10 days is about the most strenuous requirement.
The search for three successful candidates - in
Joburg, Durban and Cape Town - was launched by Parow on
behalf of Husqvarna South Africa - leading gardening,
forestry and agricultural equipment supplier. The lucky

this job, where your bank balance goes up while you sit
down, ‘being lazy never felt so good', he says. Check him

‘The Automower® has revolutionised "working" in
the garden, allowing you to do other chores while it does
all the mowing for you. Or, of course, you can get on with
other fun stuff at the same time,' says Jacqui Cochran,
marketing manager of Husqvarna South Africa.
The Husqvarna robotic Automower® has a charging
station and is guided by a boundary wire. It is fully
automatic, even returning to the charging station when
battery power is low, and starting
to mow again once fully charged, without your
