Video: woman quits job by dancing to 'Gone' by Kanye West

Marina Shifrin scored huge viral hit


A disgruntled video news producer has scored a massive viral hit with her resignation video, in which she is seen dancing to Kanye West's 'Gone' video. Check it out above.

Marina Shifrin posted the video online after becoming disillusioned with her job as a video news producer, and the pressure from superiors on quantity, rather than quality in her work. The video shows Shifrin dancing in her office, shot at 4:30am in the morning, to Kanye West's 'Gone' track. Now out of a job with her former employer, a future as a dancer must surely beckon.

Discussing her choice to quit in the way she did, Shifrin wrote online: "I work for an awesome company that makes news videos. I have put my entire life into this job, but my boss only cares about quantity, how fast we write and how many views each video gets.

"I believe it's more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings."

She later revealed on Twitter that her resignation had been accepted.
