A grown man posing as a 'living elf on the shelf' available for hire on Craigslist will give you the creeps.

'Elf on the Shelf' up until now had always been a small toy placed around the house to remind kids that Santa is always watching. But now the elf is available in human form and can be hired for any holiday themed events.

From the Craigslist - Boston ad:

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]

Prankster, or a real life nightmare? I guess there's only one way to find out.
