Scientology bragging on how well its Super Bowl ad did is the best thing ever - 2018-03-01
Scientology has been airing slick ads during Super Bowl broadcasts since 2013. This year's commercial was unusual for several reasons, as we pointed out when it first showed up. As in past years, Scientology aired the ad during local spots in some markets during the big football game, but then in national spots during prime time in the weeks following. In particular, this year the church bought national spots during Olympics coverage on NBC.
The social media response, as always, was derisive. People are generally stunned to see a Scientology ad on their TV, and Scientology's reputation has never been worse.
