Best Buy staffer makes sarky cartoon and gets the Best Boot

4 July 2010

A US Best Buy employee faces the sack this week after his bosses frowned upon a couple of animated videos he made that haul the piss out of mobile phone customers.

Although the videos (featured below, both NSFW) do not actually refer to Best Buy directly, the retail giant have decided that the fact that aspiring funnyman Brian Maupin has poked fun at the customers which he serves every day is enough to give him the tin tack.

Maupin has been suspended and expects to get his cards early this week. Whether or not he’ll be signed up by Comedy Central to make a series of these remains to be seen….

    I think these videos are well crafted and reasonably funny.

    lol so funny. I want to know what Brian thinks of it!. Got to be one nut short to spend 600 smackers on it and don't forget you need a hanger to boost the signal. lol @ Apples patch to correct the signal bar strength, they must think we are all mugs.

    You've gotta laugh at all these iphone haters. They just don't get it - the iphone is (relatively) stable, looks goood, feels good and just works (most of the time). For the vast majority, it does everything it needs to. Lol at all the uber geeks trying to prove their HTC p.o.s is better. Yes, they may do SOME things better, but the majority of people just.don't.care...
