Holding out for a Hero? Then watch this.

Here at AccountingWEB, we love it when firms do something creative and different. And we're also pretty keen fans of Bonnie Tyler, too.

That's why when we spotted this video from Manchester and Lancashire-based firm Cassons, we couldn't resist but share it. 

The firm's team have obviously gone to great lengths to create this ever-so-slightly cheesy but very enjoyable rendition of Holding out for a Hero, with some minor changes to the lyrics to gear them towards the heroism of completing tax returns and keeping HMRC at bay.

Have a watch and let us know what you think - if you've spotted any other interesting videos, comment below with a link (or even embed them) and we'll consider them for our 2013 video community awards!

I love it

It's brilliant. Find me some more, please.

I bet they had great fun making that, and the singer has a very good voice, too.

Cassons Heroes!

Many thanks for sharing our video - I must say that we have been completely overwhelmed by the feedback  on it!   We've said something about the making of the video here and following up Shirley's comment, you'll see that it was sung by Lareena Mitchell who featured in series 2 of BBC's The Voice.  She lives close to our Lancashire office. Please keep watching and sharing  Cassons Heroes!  Jill Murray, Head of Marketing, Cassons chartred accountants.

Well well done everyone !

Just perfect ! I used to work in a practice, though [fortunately] run my own businesses instead now, but it's great to see Accountants becoming ''User Friendly'' as it were !....

It was definately not an incomplete record there, on balance it didn't look like a trial, and both fixed and floating assets were very clearly defined......

Sorrrry ! Accountancy training never paid off for me I think !
