Nick Gillespie: 5 Gov't Videos Every Bit as Terrible as The IRS Star Trek Parody
How bad is the infamous IRS Star Trek parody vid that cost $60,000 to make?
So rotten that William Shatner, who played Capt. James T. Kirk on the original series, tweeted "I watched that IRS video. I am appalled at the utter waste of US tax dollars." Even the IRS—which rarely admits mistakes—has apologized for the video.
Yet as Nick Gillespie explains, godawful government videos are a dime a dozen. To prove his point, he guides us through federal filmettes about everything from savings bonds to bath salts to White House parties.
Note: Due to the egregious waste of money involved, taxpayer discretion is advised.
