That Tom Cruise Scientology video

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

YouTube has already succumbed to the Church of Scientology's pressure, but you can still see the nine-and-a-half minute video of "Tom Cruise on Tom Cruise, Scientologist" on Gawker. (Via Wizbang.) Here's what Gawker has to say:

You have to watch this video. It shows Tom Cruise, with all the wide-eyed fervor that he brings to the promotion of a movie, making the argument for Scientology, the bizarre 20th-century religion. Making the argument is an understatement. The Hollywood actor, star of movies such as Mission Impossible, is a complete fanatic. "When you're a Scientologist, and you drive by an accident, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you're the only one who can really help... We are the way to happiness. We can bring peace and unite cultures." There's much much more. Let me put it this way: if Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch was an 8 on the scale of scary, this is a 10.

If you want to save a copy for yourself, here's a download link. And here's one for another segment of the same video, about his setting up a Scientology detox center in Manhattan after the September 11, 2001, attacks. (It's still on YouTube.) And another one of his speech at an awards ceremony, in which he speaks to dead L. Ron Hubbard. (It's also still on YouTube.) Right-click on the links and "save target as." (You'll need a player like VLC which can play .flv files.)

I'm pretty sure that Tom Cruise smoked a really large bowl before he did that interview.

He kept saying stuff like "we have to do this" and "we've got to do this" and other vague stuff. and then the cheesy laugh. He says "we are this" and "we are that" and "we can bring happiness", but he never elaborates.

I'm not sure I came away from that video knowing anything more about Tom Cruise or scientology than before I watched it except it confirmed one thing: freeeeeeak.

I hope I never have a car wreck in his vicinity...
