Well, this is one way to quit your job.

"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," said Marina Shifrin on her now-viral YouTube resignation. "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."

And with that, she's gone. She's gone to the tune of Kayne West's "Gone," and a nice bit of interpretive dancing. If this isn't the most meta way to quit a job where you produce viral videos, I don't know what is.

Shifrin works worked for Next Media Animation - the popular Taiwanese animation company that has become internet famous for their short, bizarre animated renderings of the day's hottest news items.

You can read her brief interview with Gizmodo from last year, where she talks about the hectic process of speed animation. I guess it all became too much to handle.

And if you're going to go out, there's nothing like going out with hundreds of thousands of YouTube views.
