Boobies.

No, not spiffy. Spoiled brat should be drifting around, jobless, wondering why her stupid stunt didn't pay off.

Instead, she gets rewarded for being a privileged trust fund baby.

Blargh, that puppy thing at the bottom of the page just destroyed me. I have to hug my kitties.

Was the obvious tag asleep? That's the first I.thing thought of when I saw this. Someone offers her a job that's 'better' than the one she quit. In a month she will realize all jobs are pretty much the same and she won't be able to dance her way off the next one.

She should hold out for Queef Latina.

So make your own video that gets 14 million hits and then you can get rewarded for being whatever you are.

This. Also, if she had been a he, the internet and Dramaqueen Latifah would not be throwing praise at the self-entitled douche that thinks it's appropriate to behave like that. Instead, she's a free, creative, self-empowered woman in a man's world.

Taiwanese News Media Animators... Are these the folks who put out those hysterically funny re-workings of American news stories? I used to love those.

Yes.  And her complaint was they valued quantity/views over quality.  Go figure.

Did she not do any research before she took the job?

Better yet, nevermind.

And I hate to break it to you...but she's not even a real queen.

I don't get why some of you are calling her an attention whore as if it's a bad thing, sometimes drawing attention to yourself is good. In her case, it got her what sounds like a much better job.

I'd say there's a lot of butthurt in this thread, but it looks more like jealousy. Get over yourselves people, just because you're stuck in a crappy dead end job (or more likely unemployed) doesn't mean everyone has to settle for a shiatty life like you did.

You cracker b*tch.  Queen is her first name. It's a black thing.  You wouldn't understand.

Their response video was outstanding, but sadly not animated.

I have a feeling that she wound up watching one too many torrented episodes of The Newsroom and got delusions of grandeur. He employer wasn't exactly a paragon of The Fifth Estate, and no one ever really watched them to get Fareed Zakaria level insight into the world. They just wanted to be entertained by the silly CGI, which was reflected in the number of hits the videos received.
 
2013-10-06 04:40:33 AM  
Having just watched her ex-employer's video "We're Hiring" I have to say everybody came out of this looking pretty good.
 
2013-10-06 05:11:11 AM  
Anyone know if they used the actual Taiwanese animators for the video in the new The IT Crowd?
 
2013-10-06 05:59:49 AM  
I thought it said "Lalo Schiffrin" and got excited..


Then I realized it was just another attention whore. :|
 
2013-10-06 06:35:40 AM  
At first I was like "meh".  I mean, that was pretty lame, but she didn't name names, directly identify the company or even the market she works in, etc, so it was just mildly sarcastic and not really full-on douchebag.

Then I watched the company's response video and I lol'd.

//It also seems like there weren't any actual hard feelings, and clearly she actually put in notice and stuff or she wouldn't be being hired by someone else to work in the same field, so not feeling the outrage.

To be fair, I also work a job that has me in at 4:30 AM every day, and it IS difficult to have any kind of decent life with that schedule.

Mix in a boss who is a piece of shiat, and it's a recipe for suicide.

My supervisor seriously LIVES at work. I'm not exaggerating. He doesn't have anywhere else to go. Sleeps at his desk, often snoring so loud that it can be heard in other rooms. His work station is filthy. Literally every person at the place hates him because he's such an a-hole that he goes out of his way to start fights with people not even in his department. He hasn't been fired because the folks in corporate think he's useful for some reason. Anyone with a brain and eyes can clearly see that he's a colossal loser and utterly incompetent.

Jebus....Why am I putting up with this?

I gotta go look for a more acceptable job. Thanks for the inspiration, video production girl!

Life is not a machine that necessarily yields result "A" when handle "B" is pulled.
Get over yourself.
 
2013-10-06 07:53:54 AM  
Lets see. This whiny biatch quit her job because she had to make some sacrifices and her big meany-pants boss only cared about views and results.  So I assume she spoke to Queen Latifah and they agreed that she she wouldn't have to make any sacrifices or be productive, right?  Cause I'm sure the television business is very laid back, low stress and doesn't care about stupid shiat like ratings or quality anything.

I made a video that has over 1.2 million hits, and another with over 500,000 hits... do I win a cookie, at least?

I can not help but think that this is a work. She told her bosses, who she has a good relationship with, that she wanted to quit, and they told her to do a video about it. They get publicity and she gets a job with a short lived, insignificant talk show.

It is just too perfect.
 
2013-10-06 11:32:09 AM  
Oh come on - this is obviously staged. She told the boss she was quitting and he said - make a video about it!

Sadly in this day and age its usually simple homelessness but it wouldn't hurt to check Meghan's list.

I would imagine Queen L's talkshow won't last all that long and this whiny loser will be on the job market again.  Except this time, she'll be yesterday's news and will have to settle for an even shiattier job she doesn't like.
 
2013-10-06 03:20:05 PM  
And Queen Latifa will fire her once she realizes this kid is just another whiny, lazy, useless Millenial who needs constant praise, attention and validation for doing the bare minimun required of her.

Lucky you, maybe you've found your match - Marina Shiflin.  The two of you can "whine" and dine your lives away together.  Oh wait, she's not miserable anymore...  Nevermind...
