For our fellow Scientology watchers, from our underground bunker where we keep an eye on all things Hubbard, we humbly submit this brief movie that should, we think, make a certain song immortal, forevermore.
Thanks must go to a very loyal friend of Runnin’ Scared, Xenubarb, who found this song for the ages tucked away in a website.
We’ve added some slides and some explanation to help you begin to understand the depth and power of this musical voyage. It’s best seen full-screen, so make it big!
Please come back often for more doses of our Scientology coverage, both serious and not so serious.
