COLUMBIA (AP) - The dance video that a University of Missouri graduate used to quit her job is a viral sensation.

The Kansas City Star reports that Marina Shifrin performed to Kanye West's "Gone" in the 1 minute, 45 second video. The former employee of Taiwanese company Next Media Animation explains that she spent the past two years sacrificing "my relationships, time and energy for this job."

Hundreds of thousands of people have watched her utter the words "I quit." The journalism school graduate said in a recent blog post that she was sick of writing for "clicks" and felt the overall quality of journalism in general has suffered greatly in recent years.

Next Media Animation is known for creating animated satirical news and entertainment stories.
