This new video by two people who call themselves “Pete” and “Hannah” popped up yesterday. It’s an awfully fun mashup of Scientology and old school video gaming, and the production values are very high.
The Church of Scientology is very clearly mentioned in it, and the church’s practices are solidly parodied.
But are Pete and Hannah pushing their little project a bit too far?
Over at IndieGogo, they’re asking to raise $45,000 to turn this into an actual game.
It’s true that the Church of Scientology is not the litigating nightmare that it might have once been, but it’s kind of hard to imagine that Ken Moxon or Monique Yingling aren’t going to begin to twitch once they realize what’s going on here.
After all, a parody video is one thing. (And it really is a darn good video.) But to raise money in the name of the Church of Scientology?
Yikes. This is one stunt that is going to be fun to watch!
