(KPLR) - Do you ever dream of quitting your job? Well, Marina Shifrin's first job after graduating from Mizzou was as a Comedy Writer for Next Media Animation TV in Taipei, Taiwan. She dedicated her life to making other people's funny viral videos. Now, Marina has become the viral video. She told her boss she quit through a music video she posted to YouTube. That video now has over 700,000 views.

In the video's description she said, "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."
