Video interlude: Tom Cruise parody

by Mathew on January 29, 2008 · 2 comments

Just came across this, thanks to a Twitter post from Jason Calacanis: it’s a hilarious parody of the Tom Cruise video from a week or two ago, the one in which he was selling Scientology as the cure for all of mankind’s ills — the video that Scientology has been trying to get Gawker (among others) to remove, which I wrote about here. Actor Jerry O’Connell does a pretty good job of channeling Cruise, complete with slicked-back hair and a black turtleneck. The hand movements are right on, and the maniacal laughter is probably the best part. Be sure to check out the out-takes as well.

Last time I checked, the video -had been viewed about 1.7 million times. Not bad, considering it’s only been up there for a week.
