On the heels of the release of the embarrassing Star Trek and Gilligan’s Island spoof videos, and in the midst of a major scandal, a new Internal Revenue Service video has been released: a music dance video featuring some of the same employees who performed in the now-infamous Star Trek video.

The latest video was unveiled Friday by Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee ahead of a report that is expected to be released by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration investigating wasteful spending at IRS conferences. Last February, following the release of the Star Trek and Gilligan’s Island videos featuring IRS staff, Ways and Means Committee Oversight Subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany, Jr., R-La., requested all IRS produced videos.  The two original videos created a furor, and the latest example of the IRS’s creative efforts is likely to do the same (see IRS Lifts Veil on Star Trek and Gilligan’s Island Videos).
