Maybe This Busy Season Video Will Get You Fired Up For the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Premier … Or Maybe Not

Full disclosure: I’ve never watched a single episode of “Game of Thrones.” I realize I’m in the minority here. It’s not that I don’t want to watch it; I’m just too cheap to buy HBO or HBO NOW. My wife and I started paying for Netflix two years ago because we were told all the GoT episodes were on there. Come to find out we were given some bad information.

Through the years, Going Concern has whipped out some GoT-inspired articles, like when Caleb explained how the series parallels the world of public accounting. I don’t get it, but a lot of you probably will.

I do know Sunday is a big day—not only could we see Phil and his blue KPMG hat win the Masters (he’s in a four-way tie for 12th as I write this), but the premier of the final season of GoT will be airing that evening. And it’s also the eve of the finale of Busy Season 2019.

So, of course, Philadelphia-based CPA firm Drucker & Scaccetti made a video that combined tax season with medieval-looking people in medieval-type outfits in a medieval-type setting. The firm calls itself the “Tax Warriors,” and that’s the premise of this video.

No, there aren’t any dragons. No, there aren’t any raunchy sex scenes. And no, there aren’t any beheadings. But if you like nerdy-looking accountants dressed for battle holding swords and shields, then this video is for you.
