Cheering Up Will Smith, and A Survey For You SPs! - 2013-06-06
You've probably heard by now about the brilliant Scientology parody "Cheer Up Will Smith." Pulled off by (we'd guess) some Times Square stand-up comedians (the place is lousy with 'em), the parody consists of a website, numerous videos, and even some in-real-life fliers posted in Times Square itself.
The stunt appeared in the wake of Will Smith's dismal new movie After Earth, which not only performed below expectations at the box office on its opening weekend, but endured a shellacking by critics who couldn't help noting its thematic similarities with Scientology.
Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are generous contributors to Scientology-related causes, but they're on the down-low about their own involvement with the church.
