Remember the 1-minute, 45-second dance video where Marina Shifrin tendered her resignation?

The video, “An Interpretive Dance for My Boss Set To Kanye West’s Gone,” by the graduate of the University of Missouri's School of Journalism went viral earlier this week after she posted it to YouTube.

The company, Next Media Animation has responded with “An Interpretative Dance From NextMedia set to Kanye West’s Gone.”

In the video posted Tuesday to YouTube, employees are dancing while text along the bottom says, “We work for an awesome company that hires based on dance skills ”

The video goes on to explain that employees eat lunch at their desks because there are no restaurants around, but there’s a rooftop pool and sauna.

At the end of the video, the message at the bottom of the video says: “We want to wish Marina well and let everyone know We’re hiring. We’re HIRING.”
