as mentioned in the thread before, the kid lives in Kc & works @ Best Buy. When they found out it was him, BB considered firing him & even put him on suspension. When one of the Tech blogs posted his videos & mentioned what BB was threatening to do, there was a backlash & BB backed down. What's even cooler is Paramount contacted the blog & asked for the kids contact info bc they were interested in him for a possible job opportunity....

The Independence Best Buy employee who lampooned iPhone fanatics, and who used online cartoons to make fun of his employer’s customers, has been invited back to work.

But Brian Maupin says he won’t be showing up.

“I’m not sure if it would be comfortable returning to Best Buy considering the circumstances,” Maupin said in an e-mail to The Star, “but I will definitely consider all options.”

For now, the 25-year-old hourly employee said he’s planning a leave of absence “so I may survey my current career plans.”

Maupin created an Internet sensation with a video of two animated characters — someone looking to buy the new iPhone 4 and a sales person — that descends into vulgarity as the buyer gives clueless reasons for wanting the latest Apple gadget. That has drawn more than 3.3 million views on YouTube. He also posted a satirical rebuttal that derided the HTC Evo 4G phone available on Sprint’s network.

Those short videos did not mention Best Buy. But some earlier videos he made, and that had far smaller audiences, mentioned the store and made fun of customers. Last week, Maupin has said, he was suspended because of the videos.

This week, Best Buy said that he could return to work.

“It’s important to note that our investigation involved three videos that were posted in late June because they were openly disparaging of our employees, our customers and our vendor partners,” Best Buy said. “Our investigation is over, and these videos are no longer on the Web. Contrary to rumors, Brian has not been fired, and is scheduled to return to his job at Best Buy this Friday.”

Maupin described that statement as “a 180 from what they were saying (last week), but I guess they either made peace with the videos I left up or decided the others weren’t so bad.” In any event, Maupin said he didn’t plan to go to work on Friday.

I don't care because I missed it the first time around and that's funny as hell.

Thanks for the repost!
