1. It's 4:30 a.m., you're at work, and you hate your job: What do you do? Dance, dance, dance out those frustrations! Then, of course, you tell your boss you quit in a video of that dance.

    That's what Marina Shifrin did after she couldn't take the frustrations of her job any longer.
  2. "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," Shifrin wrote on YouTube.

    "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."

  4. Shifrin posted the video on Sept. 28. Less than a week later it has garnered more than five million views and has been covered by media around the world. 

    Not to mention the water cooler chatter and massive support from people online -- perhaps also workaholics looking to bust a move in protest.

    While some people questioned Shifrin's methods, pondering whether she burned her bridges with the dance, most of the comments were from people who enjoyed her combination of quitting and Kanye West.

  6. Shifrin, who describes herself as a writer, comedian and waitress on her website, appears to be taking all the attention in stride.
  7. The video has already inspired a parody, but this time it's a stay-at-home mom who does the dancing.

  9. Oh, and in case you're wondering what Shifrin's boss said after viewing her video...
  10. Though most people don't make a splash online after getting canned, this isn't the first time someone has made the news by quitting in a spectacular fashion.

    Remember the guy who made this cake? 
  11. He left his border agency official job at Stansted Airport in the U.K. on his birthday by delivering this cake to management.

    "I think that's probably a nice way for an employee to leave and I hope they enjoyed the cake as well as the resignation," he told a TV station there.

    In 2011, a U.S. man also made a grand exit by having a band start playing the moment he gave his boss his resignation letter.
