Scientology Chillin' With Hip Hop! A Video That Cannot Be Unseen

UPDATE: We take a look at the curious career of Chill EB, Scientology's in-house rapper, whose song was used for this video. And we also had a late night Direct Message conversation with him that should not be missed.

Oh my. Another jaw-dropping video produced by Scientologists for internal use has made its way to the outside world.

Take a look, and after the jump we'll tell you what we've been able to find out about this latest testament to Scientology hipness.

We believe that the track is by "Chill EB," a hip hop artist who credits Scientology with extending his career, such as it is. The name of the song is "Dauntless, Defiant, and Resolute," the title track of Chill's latest CD. (Chill himself doesn't actually appear in the video.)

The IAS is the International Association of Scientologists, a happenin' organization for which Scientologists are constantly hit up for expensive memberships.

Gosh, these folks sure love giving each other framed certificates.

I think I love this line the most:

"Psychiatry and SPs, you know we take them down!" And with that great gesture!

Who is this man?
Who is this man?

"AOSH EU" stands for, I believe, Advanced Organization Saint Hill Europe, which refers to an especially swanky Scientology facility in Copenhagen.

Can any of our European friends put an ID on the Sea Orger who appears to be the chief executive in this video? This is the best screen grab we could get of him, but he's all over the video, if you look carefully. [Readers are telling us his name is Bernd Körtel.]

We'll add more details when we can get them. We may need to wait for our European friends to rotate into the morning hours.


Should have done this last night -- the lyrics. Thanks to WWP, which got them from an IAS magazine:

Against impossible odds. And deceptive facade. One group outshines, man - just look at the signs. See we winning all over the place. Giving solutions to the world and the whole human race We ain't never gonna back down, leave town, play the clown. Phychiatry and SPs you know we take 'em down. See the purpose ingrained. It's burning in our blood. They the passing storm. We the unstoppable flood. See, cuz we the IAS. And we're dauntless and defiant. We confront even the giants, yo. Handle anyone barring freedom for all. Cuz you know when we win then nobody falls. So bring it harder y'all. Let's make it stronger now. Unite as one, answer the call. Come on, and we'll forever be the winners!

Chorus: IAS. Dauntless and defiant. So resolute. There's nothing we can't do.

Scientology ads and the PSA's. Let's play them 24/7, watch them clear the haze. We're lighting the path that Man has sought so long. And now the search is over, the truth is out, the mystery's gone, see. That's why I say there is no letting up 'til all the people are free. You know it's up to us. With Narconon and Criminon, Applied Scholastics. New AOs in the conts. Yo, it's truly fantastic. Cuz there ain't no limit to what we can do. So I wanna see you up your status. Yeah - you and you and you! And you too.

Chorus: IAS. Dauntless and defiant. So resolute. There's nothing we can't do.

From the VMs down in Haiti. Who saved so many lives. To the Cavalcades spreading the help so wide. You see we unite for human rights and restore for Man all that belongs to his life. The Way to Happiness. Brings the calm and the peace. Helping all reduce crime - even the police. Psychotropic drugs - we'll make a thing of the past. Expose the fraud of the psychs. And watch them dwindle real fast. We got islands of sanity 'round Ideal Orgs. Let's make the islands the sea by creating even more. The dwindling spiral. We'll turn it around. We got the greatest campaigns this world has ever had. So keep the force going. You know we'll never rest. Cuz as a matter of course. We be the very best. So stand proud, shout it loud. That we the IAS!

Chorus: IAS. Dauntless and defiant. So resolute. There's nothing we can't do.

UPDATE -- BREAKING NEWS! Stacy Francis got the boot from X Factor tonight!

Now she's free to go on tour with Chill EB? DM, set up the world tour!!

Here's the evidence!


ANOTHER UPDATE: More Scientology Super-Chill Hip Hop, Yo! Imagine our surprise to hear from our Down Under homie, Australian journalist Bryan Seymour, who wanted us to see another epic episode of Sea Org Raps. Take a look, if you dare, and on the other side we'll give you the excellent backstory...

Obviously, there's no way to explain what possesses a human being to put something like that on camera, but Seymour took apart Secret Millionaire star Carly Crutchfield and her "CCorp" in this exclusive investigative piece he did for Today Tonight. Check it out!
