Best Buy's Almost-Fired Associate Fires Back

Last week, we pointed to the bizarre story of Brian Maupin, the Best Buy associate who made funny videos on the side and who was almost fired for it. This week, Maupin tried to remind Best Buy that it should never torment a guy who buys pixels by the virtual barrel.

He posted a video about a guy who was called on the carpet by his boss, accused of having used Twitter to make vague innocuous comments that his superiors saw as vicious assaults on the corporate brand. How does Maupin dream this stuff up? Even though this video is not in any way related to Best Buy (cough), it's actually quite funny.
