Korean people are usually quick off the mark for money making enterprises but it looks like Germans beat them to it with this idea from Ananova.

More than 300 Germans are renting themselves out as would-be protestors.

The protestors rent themselves out for around £100 on website erento.com.

A spokesperson for the site says there has been a demand for the service.

According to the site there are various reasons why ‘protestors’ are hired.

According to local German media, organisers of a recent march in Munich hired a group of protestors because its own adherents were too old to stand for hours waving banners.
