Accountants are normally reserved, professional and controlled, but a new type of accountant is taking social media by storm, the dancing accountant.
Dressed in his signature accounting ‘uniform’ that includes a tie, glasses, sweater-vest, and obligatory black briefcase, once a week the Dancing Accountant performs a one-man ‘flash mob’ style public dance, which is uploaded to his YouTube channel.
After attending a music festival a couple of years ago, the character was born after the Dancing Accountant realised that his unique dance moves were being copied by a group of people standing behind him. Unperturbed, he continued before realising that the crowd of imitators soon grew, until almost fifty had joined in.
“It was then I realised that people just enjoy seeing someone let loose, and that’s where the idea of the videos came from.” Viewers suggest the location and make song requests.
Is this totally crazy? obviously the bank didn’t like it because they called the police
Does this help to improve the image of accountants?

Why not. Shows that accountants are fun and intersting not just grey suits. Good for moral and team building.
Just checked him out on Youtube – Great stuff, not sure it would go down well over here?? But he must be a CIMA Accountant surely?
