Here at HV HQ, we often discuss the Quick Hit versus Something Worth a Damn strategy. “Traffic” is the worst word on the information superhighway, but it is also how most content creators pay the bills.

Quality v. Quantity, it’s what led this video news network employee to quit, and to do so in spectacular meta-commentary fashion:

Kanye West would be so proud.

The Huffington Post caught up with Marina Shifrin, the world’s foremost interpretive dancing quitter, who left her job at Next Media Animation:

In a Skype chat with The Huffington Post, Shifrin wrote that the Taiwanese work environment is very different from the American work environment. She got no lunch break and her boss was constantly changing her schedule and responsibilities. After her managers failed to help her, she decided to make the video.
“I understood that it was a risk, but I never named the company or my boss and I mean, have you seen my dancing? How can anyone take that seriously,” she said.
Shifrin said her first move is to come back to The United States. After that, she plans on looking for jobs at companies that value creativity and their employees.

Here’s the question: Does this video make Shifrin more hirable because of her wit and principles, or less so because of her public bashing?
