Debuting on Feb. 10, 2010 (in time for Valentine’s Day), “If I Were an Auditor” tells the story the story of two auditors who view their relationship through the lens of certain accounting and auditing-related concepts.
The idea for the video and song parody lyrics was developed by Edith Orenstein, author of the FEI Financial Reporting Blog. The video was produced by the Maryland Association of CPAs.
The song is a parody of “If I were a carpenter”, a hit folk song of many decades ago. This duet is sung by Steven Zelin, the singing CPA, and Edith Orenstein. It is available for I-tunes download.
Several financial and accounting bloggers appeared in the video, including me. It was a great time. Mostly I was just there to look good, which is all I wanted. Don’t you know any good wedding needs rice throwers? Although I don’t get over to Second Life enough, it really is cool.
Coming later this week to The Summa will be interviews with the video’s singers: Steven Zelin and Edith Orenstein.
Other interesting stories on the video are, “A-list of accounting bloggers visit CPA Island to film music video” and “Accounting music video launches in time for holiday” and CFO’s “Would you marry and auditor” and “A Little Valentine’s Day Accounting Humor & Playing on Second Life” and “Auditors in Love“.
