For the generations that have provided free technical support to grandparents everywhere since the ’80s and ’90s, it can be difficult to admit that the rapid pace of technological innovation is intimidating at times. There’s no denying things are changing fast. While business writers push endless streams of science fiction about robots taking jobs, technology […]
As much as we'd like to believe we're a great resource for CPA exam candidates, it's easy for candidates to get confused by the wealth of exam information floating around out there on the Internet. While other websites and forums can be helpful for those seeking support from other candidates going through the same misery, […]
Hard to say. But “Blockheads” would need to be careful.
It might have been funny if there had been glass in the window and our actor hit his head on it but otherwise we’re especially glad they didn’t involve any scenes with Miggs.
Following the ingenious reenactment of the beginning of Luke Skywalker’s father issues, the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs has delved into the classics, bringing us a scene from Casablanca.
Personally, I’m not crazy about this one. It’s bad enough that most of you haven’t seen the film but from an artistic integrity perspective, it really should have filmed it in black and white. However, I have to admit that the overwhelming smoke and horrendous French accent were nice touches. Other commentary is welcome at this time.

Pennsylvania CPAs Insist Accountants Are Funny in New Videos. Which Are Funny
Last year the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs went on a video production bonanza that incorporated Snuggies, public service announcements from the 1980s and your breathlessly judgmental friends. As impressive as those videos were, putting a CPA spin on a climatic scene from the best film in the Star Wars series takes things to a whole new level.
The breathing at 0:39 and the subsequent scream are priceless, as is the cough at 0:55.
The latest edition of CPA video marketing, courtesy of the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs takes another reality TV angle, parodying the show “What Not to Wear”. While our suggestion to incorporate Lady Gaga or the cast of Jersey Shore seems to have been overlooked for the time being, we’ve been assured by the PICPA VP of Communications that our suggestions are being considered. We won’t push the issue, as there may be better ideas.
Like perhaps, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”??? It’s a natural fit, amiright?
Sorry. We’re done submitting ideas. Here’s the latest:
Our tepid enthusiasm for this particular video is probably due to the fact that we’ve never seen “What Not to Wear” although we did love the “Breathlessly Judgmental Friend”. Seriously, doesn’t everyone have a breathlessly judgmental friend that you just want to punch in face?
While this parody wasn’t our favorite, we understand that there are CPAs in the Keystone State that probably enjoy this particular spin and it still beats anything we’ve seen from an accounting firm. Keep up the good work Team PICPA.
