Woman quits her job through an interpretive dance to a Kanye West song

And when you thought you’ve seen it all… A 25-year-old writer Marina Shifrin, announced her resignation last Saturday by posting a video of her having a solo dance party on YouTube set to Kanye West’s song “Gone”.

Apparently there is no need for two weeks’ notice anymore; this is how you quit your job in the 21st century.

Almost immediately the video went viral, with now 8.7 million views. The video also got the attention of major news outlets around the world.

In the video, which was filmed at 4:30 am, she dances around in the office, while on-screen captions explain her reasoning behind the video and her resignation.

She claimed that the Taiwanese animation company Next Media Animation is “awesome,” and that her “boss only cares about quantity and how many views each video gets… I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content.”

She says she made this video “to focus on the content instead of worrying about views.” Quite ironic how this video went viral with over 8.7 million views. Her boss should be proud.

Today, in response to Shifrin’s video, the company posted their own video in the same format, wishing Marina well and to let everyone know that “they’re hiring” .

The response video used the same locations and format as the original video, as well as showed off some of their awesome facilities they offer, like a roof top pool, to entice potential job candidates.

Her boss also had some words for her saying he wished “Marina would have applied more creativity to her daily work as she did in this video”.

This video has already inspired a parody, featuring a dancing stay-at-home mom dancing that she quits.
