YouTube video goes Venti after singing Starbucks employee fired in Chowchilla

YouTube’s latest rising viral star just lost his job. Christopher Cristwell, 26, is making national headlines after he posted a video of himself on YouTube singing about his job at the Chowchilla Starbucks. In the video, he sings the song while playing guitar and wearing nothing but a green apron and his underwear: "It’s just a cup of coffee / Give me a break / I shouldn’t have to put with this making minimum wage." Well, now he won’t have to. He was fired on Tuesday. The video was picked up by a popular Starbucks blog last week, which quickly caught the attention of the corporate honchos. After several meetings with managers, he was sent packing.
