Was the interpretive dance resignation all just a ruse?

The company have hit back with their own dance skillz.

SO YOU MAY remember the girl who quit her job using an interpretive dance to Kanye West’s ‘Gone’.

But was it all a viral stunt to drum up some buzz around her former employer, Taiwanese animation company, Next Media Animation?

According to Marina Shifrin, she quit the company due to putting her whole life into the job, while her boss only cared about quantity and views of videos produced.


Well he’d be pretty happy now, wouldn’t he?

The resignation video has 8.8 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on Saturday, and describes NMA as an “awesome company that makes news videos”.

Next Media Animation, in a sharpish move for an overworked company, decided that their employee had found the perfect formula to reel in the hits and made their own interpretive dance video to accept Shifrin’s non-conventional resignation letter.


The whole thing’s a HR nightmare if you ask us.

In more important issues, you should watch this work at home Mum attempting the rebellious dance. We’re waiting on the rebuttal from her mortified kids.
