NewsFeed knows it said it would give up the guilty pleasure that is Charlie Sheen news. But we just couldn’t resist sharing this little piece of information with you.

You read that right – 74,040 people want to work for the recently unemployed star. And that’s just the count from Monday to Wednesday.

Sheen posted a listing asking for a “hard-working, self-motivated, creative, resourceful and social media savvy individual” who will “work closely with Charlie Sheen in leveraging his social network,” according to this posting on Internships.com, which is Sheen’s first Twitter sponsor. The posting itself was a paid promotion. So what does it take to be Charlie’s social media intern? Just 72 characters. That’s all Team Sheen is asking for from applicants, which we bet is why so many people figured they’d apply.

Charlie, we really do worry about you. But even NewsFeed has to admit — this Twitter stunt is pure marketing genius. (Via AP)
