Trapped In The Closet

January 20th, 2006

I mentioned earlier the South Park episode Trapped In The Closet, the basic story is that Stan goes to a Scientologist Personality test center and the Scientologists believe that Stan is the re-incarnation of their founder L Ron Hubbard. At one point in the episode Tom Cruise turns up at Stan’s house (coz he’s a big Scientologist freak… errr follower) and asks him what he thinks of his acting, Stan tells him he’s “OK” but doesn’t think he’s as good as Leonardo DiCaprio or Gene Hackman, so Tom decides to lock himself in Stans closet (cupboard for UK readers). What follows is basically 20 minutes of Stan, Nicole Kidman, R Kelly and John Travolta asking Tom Cruise to come out of the closet and Tom refusing to admit that he’s in the closet…. clever? No. Funny? Hell Yeah!

However it seems Tom Crusie doesn’t find it quite as funny as I did. He’s threatened Paramount with a law suit if it ever gets shown again, which unfortunately means that it will never be shown in the UK. This isn’t a huge surprise since Tom has repeatedly sued people for claiming he’s gay.

Unfortunately the episode is incredibly easy to find on any file sharing system so I implore people not to go looking for it, and not to download it and not to find it incredibly funny. Because that would just be wrong!
