A former employee of the coffee shop chain Starbucks has become famous on the internet after he uploaded a video of himself singing a song, which subsequently got him fired from his job.

He recorded the song in July and since then it has gone viral. The twenty five year old said that he was surprised at how much attention his video got and he has received thousands of messages of support on his Facebook page. He said “I’m surprised that people are enjoying it so much, I really made the video just for my fellow co-workers and closest friends.”
