Lululemon hasn’t had a lot to joke about lately, with its see-through pants scandal, plunging stock prices, and the announcement that its CEO, Christine Day, is stepping down.

But the company decided to make light of Day’s departure with a fake job listing for the position of CEO, which included such requirements as “you use your third eye to channel innovation,” “can hold headstand for at least 10 minutes,” and “you already have a plan to bring yoga and luon to Mars by 2018.”

According to CNN, 160 people applied for the job before the company took down the fake listing.

In defense of the duped applicants, the job description doesn’t sound that ridiculous if you consider the fact that “Director of Possibilities” is an actual job title the company employs. —Lisa Elaine Held
