    Yeah it's a little extreme for Best Buy to go to these lengths but you got to watch out for these things when working for a big corporation. The same for posting stupid stuff on social networking sites like, "Man, I got so hammered last night."

    When you post stuff on YouTube, Facebook, or where ever, with your name attached to it, it's there for the whole world to see.....even if you do have your profile set to private. People just don't think anymore.

    There's no mention of BestBuy or any affiliation there of. It's pretty ridiculous. I hope he sues for wrongful termination if he's fired. That will surely make BestBuy look bad to investors, not this silly little video.

    I believe he had other videos that pinned him
    to the crime in which he deleted at their
    request, but refused to take down the video
    for i4 vs. EVO as it had nothing to do with
    Bestbuy.

    well Best Buy will probably get hit with a lawsuit as the vids have NOTHING to do with them...

    That's really a shame.. I saw this video a few days ago and have shown it to everyone that I can think of. I am huge fan of the iPhone but this video is a classic. I hate Best Buy anyway so this is just one more reason not to shop there.

    Some of the funniest videos I've seen in a long time. And the ironic thing the dialogue is the truth.

    So do we know what happened with his job situation? I'm willing to send Best Buy and email that I'll no longer be shopping with them if he gets fired.

    Kidding? No. But of course it's not that hard for me as I don't go there as much as I used to. I mostly buy Amazon now. And there are other options for me to get stuff elsewhere. I'd be more willing to do it though, if he hasn't been fired yet, but is still suspended. In the hopes of maybe, possibly, slightly helping out. If it's already all done and over with... I could go either way.

    And of course... this is only if he cares. If he's happy to look elsewhere, then whatever, it all doesn't really matter.
