It's Scientology TV ad season as the Super Bowl approaches - here's what to expect - 2018-01-03
It's always fun, this time of year, to see the reactions when people unfamiliar with the idea of David Miscavige's PR aspirations suddenly realize they've seen a Scientology ad on their television, and they take to Twitter to have the mother of all freakouts.
It never fails. Each year, we see viewers go completely nuts over the idea that Scientology has paid to run a short pitch on their TV screens.
You'd think they'd be used to it by now. Five years ago, for 2013's Super Bowl, Scientology advertised during the game for the first time. Why then? Well, we agreed with Mike Rinder that it was probably a direct result of Debbie Cook asking, in court testimony in 2012, about the money that Scientologists were supposedly paying for publicity campaigns.
