Stars & Stripes is reporting that the Department of Veterans Affairs spent a grand total of $52,000 on this video played at a conference for employees. The point? An actor imitating George C. Scott’s performance in Patton is the master of ceremonies as a number of Human Resources professionals explain the importance of the VA to employees of the VA currently attending a VA conference. 

The House Committee on Veterans Affairs got a hold of the video and released it to the public. 

At 15 minutes long and $52,000 in total, that comes to $3,500 per minute. Was it worth it? Check it out:
