Viral video sensation: Best Buy camper is back on the job


- Best Buy camper Jarvis Johnson skyrocketed to internet fame after he waited in line for five days for Black Friday deals last week.

After he rapped for FOX 10's Marcy Jones, the video became a viral sensation -- viewed over 31 million times!

Johnson got time off from work to wait in line and on December 3rd, he was back on the job at the McDonald's drive-through near 35th Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

"I am back at work man, I'm excited to be here. I enjoy being at McDonald's," he said.

We first caught up with Johnson during his five-day camp out for Black Friday at the Best Buy store in Avondale. He wound up purchasing five televisions.

"I got a good deal. I got five 50-inch TVs and even got a tablet for Eduardo, my nephew and I spent a total of about $850."

After Jones interviewed him, the video clip became a viral hit, even making international headlines.  A Brooklyn artist even made a remix.

"I ain't come up with a McDonald's rap just yet, but I am coming up with a single," said Johnson.

While he does have plans for a single, he's back in the mix at work.  And when he's not giving customers their orders, he's busy giving away some of his haul from Black Friday.

"I think I did really good. I gave away two TVs already," he said.  "You know, I enjoy being a blessing to people."

He gave one of the appliances to his manager at McDonald's.
