“What you rappers could get is a job from me”-Kanye West
(AllHipHop News) Who said video producers can’t beef like rappers? This past Saturday (September 29th), former Next Media Animation employee Marina V. Shifrin used Kanye West’s “Gone” song in a video that effectively(and creatively) told her boss that she quit.
Citing a focus on quantity of views over quality of videos, Shifrin recorded “an interpretive dance” video voicing her complaints using the Late Registration track. Here is the video description wherein she details her reasoning for quitting:
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.
As of today (October 2nd) Shifrin’s video has recieved over 8.5 million YouTube views.
However, three days later Shifrin’s old job responded in kind with an interpretive dance video of their own set to the same Kanye West song. In the jocular video, the Next Media Animation employees detail the benefits of working at the job (including a rooftop sauna and pool).
No word if Kanye West, Def Jam or G.O.O.D. Music will take legal action on the use of the Kanye West song
