An unidentified Boston-area man has taken the "Elf on the Shelf" Christmas tradition to a new--a far, far creepier--level.

In an ad posted five days ago on the Boston Craiglist page, the man posted the following:

For $100/hour I will come to your holiday party dressed as the Elf on the Shelf and sit in any location you assign me while I stare emptily at your guests for the duration of the event.
I specialize in holiday themed events, either yours or an un-expecting friend's, but I also offer contracted private investigation and babysitting services. Please inquire about these rates, as they are negotiable based on the task at hand.
My services have been in high demand this season, so I now require at least 48 hours notice in advance of any bookings and appreciate your understanding.
Thank you, and happy holidays!
[whatever you want my name to be]

I personally think $100 per hour would be worth it to have this weirdo randomly show up at the Christmas parties of all my so-called "friends" who forgot to invite me...but I'll pass on the babysitting service, I think.

Would YOU hire this guy to be your living Elf on the Shelf?
