They Can Do Better

This parody of the Tom Cruise Scientology videos is being greeted with much hilarity. Having been creeped out by the real deal (the most creepy part is the military salue Tom gives the head of Scientology as he walks onstage to accept his Medal of Valor--seriously, he holds it for like 30 seconds), I am not impressed by Jerry O'Connell's parodic skills. Ben Stiller would have done a better job, I think, but he's scared of Tom Cruise.

Apologies for the width of the embed, but this one is immune to HTML editing.

Sweet L. Ron Hubbard! Aaron and I have mind-melded, like Tom Cruise and John Travolta. We were just writing these Tom Cruise posts at exactly the same time. Spooky.

Sometimes the actual thing is so ridiculous as to pretty much resist parodying. This might be one of those cases. I mean, how do you top the original for spookiness and unintentional comedy?
