Viral HTC Evo vs. iPhone 4 Video Gets Kid Fired from Best Buy (The One)
Well, even though the video takes place at "Phone Mart," the kid who made it -- 25-year-old Brian Maupin -- works at Best Buy in real life. Or, he did, until his bosses discovered the video. It doesn't portray "phone mart" employees as the nicest people, and definitely shows (hilarious) disdain for customers, so Best Buy and Maupin are reportedly parting ways. D'oh.
What's next? Well, Brian will be pursuing his comedy/animation career (send us your next video, B!) and his anti-iPhone vid has racked up a mighty 1.6 million YouTube views in just a week. (By the way, Maupin didn't animate this one; he used a web toy called Xtranormal.) There's also a pro-iPhone response vid that's just as funny.
Both of the videos are below, and both are NSFW (due to lots of swears).
