Best Buy Un-Suspends Animator Employee. He Says Take This Job & Shove It

Remember that Best Buy employee who was suspended from his job for posting his “iPhone vs. Evo” cartoons online? Well, the box store’s star chamber has conferred and given the young man a stay of execution from his hourly gig. One hitch: He doesn’t really want to go back to working for Best Buy.

While Best Buy says it expects the no-longer-suspended employee to return to work on Friday, he tells the Kansas City Star that he won’t be there.

I’m not sure if it would be comfortable returning to Best Buy considering the circumstances… but I will definitely consider all options.

The 25-year-old told the paper he’s taking a leave of absence from the store to “survey my current career plans.”

As for why Best Buy had decided to lift his suspension, he says, “I guess they either made peace with the videos I left up or decided the others weren’t so bad.”

Just for fun, here are some of the videos:
