It's complete bollocks.

Why would they show Buddhists in their commercial? Isn't that like a Coke commercial showing a guy drinking Pepsi?
Scientologist believe Elron is the reincarnated Siddharta Gautama.
Read Hubbard's 'Hymn of Asia'
Considering he named a race of tiny, servile aliens in Battlefield Earth "Chinkos," I wouldn't be that surprised.

This would be an excellent ad for pretty much any product you could ever want to sell.
Good job, marketing team.
(Personally, i like the one that uses footage of the civil rights movement to talk about how great scientology is - I was honestly expecting it to be a bank or credit card company begging for forgiveness, but I was wrong.)
Also: potentially interesting experiment - reply on Youtube with a comment about Lisa McPherson or what-have-you and see how long it stays up, if it even goes up.
I tried posting a slightly negative but polite comment. No dice. Bunch of malevolent fucking whackos.
I think they're screening comments before they go up- I tried to sneak one through on one of my dummy accounts, let's see if it gets in.
Actually, it looks like at least 75% of the comments are from sockpuppet CoS accounts with no activity but praising and favoriting Scientology videos. Subtle!

This is a billion stars of evil. If this commercial ended with the word "humanity" instead of "scientology" this would be the only truly life affirming commercial in human history, but no, it's scientology, which means the first twelve drafts of this got someone beaten or worse. That just royally pisses me off.
Er, the ad for the Discovery Channel about liking the whole world is pretty life-affirming. Check it out.
I may be out of touch (almost definitely) but are there really people so desperate for some outside direction in their lives that they'll see this and go, Oh shit I should check this out it said I could know myself yeah that's what I've been missing all along SHIT YEAH! Scientology, here I come!
I mean, seriously? Are there really people who're going to pick their spirituality based on a one and a quarter minute spot they happened to catch?

My former roommate bought into this shit (see the previous Scientology ad for my description) because he had a congenital heart disease. 7 months of disability later, he was claiming to be a higher being. We will never talk again. Thanks, Scientology!

HEY THAT COMMERCIAL HAS SOME THINGS THAT I LIKE SO I MUST LIKE SCIENTOLOGY TOO

I nearly crushed my remote in my hand when I saw this on MSNBC. "I guess this is an okay commercial. Is this another one of those 'Human Element' commercials? SCIEN-?!" (gnashing of teeth)

"That sounds kinda kooky."
"WHY DO YOU HATE LIFE, SIR?!"

All of the youtube comments are rather creepy, except one that's just "booo". I'm surprised that one got through.

Hey look, a bunch of people raging about how a religion other than their own mainstream one is a false cult.
OH MY WORD, I APPEAR TO HAVE CUT MYSELF ON YOUR EDGE
