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

Categories: Scientology

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.

Chill EB (from his Facebook)
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?
"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!

confidential to MOOG: new track for Chanology SF soundtrack??


Don't know who the commanding officer is but one of the oft shown grimacing certificate holders is David Pomeranz. http://www.officialdavidpomera...Talented composer and die-hard koolaide drinker.Wonder how much they fleeced the poor guy for?

Village Voice, huh? Quite frankly, I've never heard of you. Therefore I do not know how legitimate you are as a news source. According to your first statement about me you lack credibility. You claim I do not appear in the official video? For real??And this is the official video for the song? Really??!? LOLWho are your sources for this story? Whoever it is you should replace them. Fire them!They really make you and your blog look pretty silly. If you are the one responsible for researching and reporting this atrocity you call news you should submit your resignation immediately!In closing, I'd like to say that had you asked me politely I would have spent time to allow an interview.I would have even shared with you the video for this song. You could quickly tell it is not substandard, and it was filmed in the highest quality according to the video/film industry. Speaking of quality, should you spend more time on your research and less time trying to antagonize me the quality of your blog would not be an issue.


This reminds me a lot of the SGI's sing-along cult pep rallies. Swap a few lyrics, insert a "kosen rufu" and a "nam myo ho renge kyo" in there and poof! Its the SGI. Creepy cults are creepy.  Same shit different cult.


That was hilarious. I love how they make these flashy videos and promo pieces about how they can confront and shatter any suppression, but if you get one alone, they wither and cower in fear.  #lolscientology


...and would the two of us who watch the X Factor religiously please take a moment to acknowledge how truly mediocre Stacy Francis is. Thanks.


You are ALL out ethics jokers and degraders, you are CI to COB and I am very ARC-X with all of you. You should all END CYCLE and when you come back, start your A to E and your OW write ups. START!


The IAS video was worse than an "America's Got Talent" audition!  I wanted to tear my eyes out!

Thanks a lot, Tony!  It is going to take months to recuperate!

Watched the vdeo on youtube and was struck by the youtube selected related videos that are all about the IAS or The India Civil Service. Surely an opportunity for LULZ?


Scientology made this piece of crap?

Are we sure Ark Music Factory didn't make this video instead??


As someone on the outside of this entire issue,  the vitriol displayed against Scientology always confused me - please tell me you are all Atheists. Otherwise it comes across as one guy with a vendetta masked in journalism, a few racists that hate "rap" , or finger pointing Christians who think their way is the only way.  Again, I'm just watching from the outside, and I rarely see this many comments on any given issue...and aren't there a ton of cult like organizations to be taken to task? ie, the American two party system, the Mormons, Bilderberg Group, the fore mentioned Christianity whose main boy Jesus is about as mysterious as Xenu...I'm just sayin'...


so on 11/12 at 81st and Vermont Blvd in South LA, the Co$ opened a new community center attended by Congresswomen Maxine Waters and Karen Bass and LA City Council Member Bernard Parks. somebody please 'poon them with info about who they're funneling money into.


I think Lawrence Welk might be more the speed for this group of no-rhythm robots. (thank ya, thank ya, thank ya)

Scientology is like Lady GaGa, they both make beautifully produced garbage.


Why is it that nothing they ever do comes off as even remotely authentic. Gratuitous use of a Mercedes SL, FAIL. White, middle-class, Scilon slaves lipsynching and trying to act all "bad", FAIL. Dreadful architectural mishmash that manages to be both fake grungy and fake grandiose at the same time, FAIL. Photo of anyone in an ascot, FAIL.


These people need a psychiatrist.

I just viewed that Stacy Francis clip... or is it Francis Stacy.... oh well...

Her "personal space" is a big dark cloud.... she clearly needs at least two dozen intensives to clear that up.... and certainly half a dozen 'power levels' to "erase" that horrific frown on her face... 

But then again... an afternoon on the Santa Monica Pier and a trip to "Ben & Jerry's" for a double cone.... might just produce the same 'Results'....

Her choice.


LOL at the USUAL hate mongers "reviewing" Scientologists" performances in music.Jeezzz...can you guys stick at reviewing what you have more expertise on?I heard that the newest porn movies and the latest prostitution classified ads on Village Voice are worth to be reviewed by you all experts. Please leave ARTS alone, stick to what you guys are best at.:)


I never said the Copenhagen IAS video was the official video, Chill. I made it quite clear in the followup piece that we haven't seen the official video yet. But I would like to see it.

Should have mention yOu can see what the Independent scientlogists are saying here:


Okay we critics don't all like marty rathbun, the ex-scientologists often hate him because of what he did to them in scientology. I have no such axe to grind unless he starts to build another cult.

The thing is people often say scientology when they mean church of scientology, it's just easier.

As an atheist I view all theist religions and religions such as scientology as at best unnecessary for me. Where I object is when a religion is trying to get out of its box, like campaigning to have creationism taught as a science or when it abuses people.

Frankly people don't need churches to be religious. My take is if there is a god, which I highly doubt but cannot prove, then all religions are wrong that say you much worship god through them.

I doubt even belief in god is necessary to avoid hell if it exists, which I doubt.

I believe if by some crazy chance there is a god, heaven and hell they'll be a few sheepish athiests being invited in to heaven and a few shocked theists being directed else where.

I'm an atheist, but the criticism is pretty broad spectrum.

I was on God Discussion earlier and they think it's pretty crass too.

You should see what the Independent Scientologists are saying about it.

I get the impression those who watch it and listen to the lyrics find them in rather poor taste unless they're IAS members.

You have your own poon. You took a practise shot here and your poon is as true as statement.

As a local citizen your poons hit hardest and deepest.

Poon away and may the wind be at you back and the current in your favour.

My poon from the UK would barely scratch the skin, though it might leave a frestering boil.

Never heard of a cracker rapper. You sound a bit racist but your racism is kinda weird to me. Why would I be the cracker rapper? Going viral is in my favor you idiot! My video counts continue to climb. Reaching many more people I would otherwise not reach. The fact that you seem excited about something so trivial and petty let's me know your mentality. Go ahead. Keep working for me. Pretty soon the entire world will know about me whether they like me or not. There's a good chance I just man not like them too!

You have THAT right!  These Scientology created videos are perfect examples of individuals who NEED shrinks, or has the e-meter completely fried their brains?  


Come to think of it, I think this video was on MTV in 1987!

Scientology: turning dorks into greedy lying superdorks since the 50s



Coming from a guy who thinks Ron was a great writer and photographer and actor and singer and....

Dude, you have no business discussing art. You clearly wouldn't know it if it bit you in the siphon.


We wogs have Miles Davis and John Coltrane.  Scientology has The Apollo Stars.  And that about sums up the art topic.


I agree, Marcotai.  

L Ron Hubbard's artistic skills were above reproach.  He not only wrote and performed his own much-acclaimed songs.  

He also wrote the premier book about art, called "Art" which answers the age-old question "What is Art."  It also instructs exactly how to make art with practical tips.  

The book is a sequel to his other masterpiece, "All about Radiation."

SP 'Onage

You know what cracks me up about you Marcotai?

You comment here at VV with some degree of manners only because the media and the "World" is watching.

The true Marcotai persona is at, "Ask The Scientologist" blog. Your posts are vile, vengeful and full of profanity.

So stop frontin' here with your "holier than thou" bullshit!


"I heard that the newest porn movies and the latest prostitution classified ads on Village Voice are worth to be reviewed by you all experts. "

Do tell. I suppose you folks with superpowerz in the RPF gotta talk about something, eh?

I was initially drawn by Musto's bitchy comments muhself.

Now you just go run along and get yourself rehabilitated, ok?



1.  Please point out where anyone here was reviewing anything remotely resembling "art." 

2.  From whom did you hear the newest porn movies and the prostitution classifieds are worthy of being reviewed?  Please report to ethics immediately.


  Actually, he invented music in a previous life, 3 million years ago, with the name Arpen Polo.  You can look it up.  Unfortunately, he could not prevent the internet from being invented.


That's right! Thank you Billy.


Marcotai is not in the cult.  He just an unempolyed troll that likes to post idiotic comments and end each statement of stupidity with a LOL. 


That's total B.S.  I PERSONALLY invented music 3 million years ago, myself.   So that Hubbard guy doesn't have a leg to stand on. I even have proof!


LOL yes Thank you Billy. Nothing like watching the cult lap dog dive for a scrap covered in sarcasm


Cult member vs unemployed troll... What's the difference?Both are completely useless to society and will do anything for a free meal and a bit of pocket money.


The value of a troll lies in the straight lines thrown out that give people a great opportunity to drop some knowledge on teh noobs.


Correct!  Marcotai is not a Scientologist.  He's trolling both sides, trying to get a rise out of critics while, at the same time, making Scientologists look very bad.  Pretty good trolling, if you ask me.
