A couple of elderly The Last of Us 2 fans are looking to hire a personal tutor to help them understand how to play the game. 

As spotted by @GenePark (opens in new tab) on Twitter, the wife of the elderly couple posted an ad to what appears to be Craigslist seeking a "PS4 Pro games tutor" in the San Jose area, USA. The job description asks for somebody who would visit the couple in their home and teach them how to play PS4 games, specifically The Last of Us 2 which they are "having trouble with."

The job listing requires somebody who "knows [The Last of Us 2] and how to work the controller". They also need to be fully vaccinated and have a lot of patience. Perhaps most heartwarmingly, the couple asks whoever applies to "teach without judging us, without getting frustrated or irritated for 2 - 3 hours."

We’re sure many fellow The Last of Us 2 fans would jump at the opportunity to become the couple’s tutor, however one person who has shown a keen interest in the job, and is perhaps one of the most qualified to teach in such a subject, is actor Shannon Woodward, AKA Dina’s mo-cap performer/voice in The Last of Us 2. 

The actor not only replied to Gene Park’s tweet (opens in new tab) with "Gene how do I apply?" but also quoted the original tweet (opens in new tab) with the caption "I will literally do this." Not only has this story warmed our hearts but also reminded us how much of an impact Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic game has had on its fans, from those who are well versed in all things PlayStation, and even those who are new to the gaming world.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
