Todd Babiak is an entrepreneur and the author of Come Barbarians and Son of France. In this segment, he shares the strangest job experience he's ever had.

My strangest day job was actually a night job. I was going to a rave party at a nightclub, and the nightclub owner, who I knew a little bit — probably for nefarious reasons — phoned me as I was getting ready and asked if I would come, because his go-go dancer was sick. So he paid me $500 to take off my clothes and stand on a riser in my underwear and dance. My strangest job for sure.
