The Ernst & Young Las Vegas Office Should Try to Nab This Guy for Their Next Singalong

It’s fair to say that of all the fine accountants that participated in the E&Y video from earlier this week, none of them will be bagging a Grammy any time soon (regardless of what the E&Y bigwigs say).


That being said, there is at least one accountant out there who must decent enough pipes to garner this headline:

The Singing Accountant set to be this year’s Susan Boyle?

Not surprisingly, the young lad is a little timid:

Christopher is an accountant who lacked confidence to follow his singing dream. After years of hiding his talent, his family finally persuaded him to pluck up the courage and audition for the show.

“I’ve come to Britain’s Got Talent to audition today mainly from pressure from my parents, more than anything else. They’ve been telling me for years and years that I need to do something like this.”

If Simon Cowell says this, “I think you have a really, really good voice,” then that’s a pretty good indication that you’ve got a better than average singing voice (unfortch there’s no video at this time).

As opposed to what he might have said to the E&Y LV peeps, which we might be something along the lines of:

A) That’s the worst performance I’ve ever heard.

B) That would make my labrador howl uncontrollably for hours.

C) That explains why your pay was frozen.

D) I know Jim Turley, and when he gets wind of this, you’re all going to be fired.

E) Now I know why Lehman Brothers failed.

Now you go.
