Submission + - This IRS Star Trek Parody is absolutely real. And they spent $60k producing it. (youtube.com)

An anonymous reader writes: According to the AP, the IRS is being scolded for spending $60,000 dollars on an elaborate parody video that played at a 2010 conference. "The video features an elaborate set depicting the control room, or bridge, of the spaceship featured in the hit TV show. IRS workers portray the characters, including one who plays Mr. Spock, complete with fake hair and pointed ears. The production value is high even though the acting is what one might expect from a bunch of tax collectors. In the video, the spaceship is approaching the planet 'Notax,' where alien identity theft appears to be a problem."

You can find the hilarious and/or nausea-inducing video on YouTube.
