Have you ever had a boss that just drove you crazy? Every day, you dream about telling him (her) exactly what you feel and dramatically proclaiming “I Quit!” Marina Shifrin actually lived out our dream and created some unique music chart history with her unique approach. Marina was working in Thailand for a video production company more concerned about their YouTube video views than the job satisfaction of their employees. So, at 4:30 A.M., Marina showed up early to work and created a interpretative dance video proclamation of her feelings. Set to Kanye West’s “Gone”, Marina told her boss (and the world), “I’m Outta Here!”
“QUITTING VIA INTERPRETATIVE DANCE!”
The Kanye West song, “Gone”, appears on his Late Registration CD released eight years ago. With Marina’s viral video (over 15 million views), Kanye’s non-single track recently exploded onto the charts. Billboard debuted the song at #18 on the Hot 100 and “Gone” reached #4 on the Hip Hop/R&B chart. Remember, this is almost a decade after Kanye recorded the song and it’s suddenly one of his biggest selling records of all-time while never being released as a single. And what about Marina? Queen Latifah offered her a new job as digital content producer for her new talk show!
