Rich Silverstein, co-founder of advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, is looking for a personal assistant – and he isn’t settling for just anyone.

“Have you ever looked greatness in the eyes – and cried because it was so damn beautiful it hurt your feelings?,” asks the hilarious ad, which was posted on Craigslist.
