I just posted this Tom Cruise MTV Movie Awards video promo last week, in which Tom’s Les takes a shot at a young Tom Cruise which led me to openly wonder whether I should have even been aware that the MTV Movie Awards still existed. Alas, Tom Cruise doing these Les Grossman promos is almost enough to get me to start paying attention. Note that I said, almost. I don’t think I have seen an MTV Movie Awards show in its entirety in a decade, if ever. Still, getting Cruise to send up Twilight luminaries Robert Pattison (pretty funny) and Taylor Lautner (not as much) is a brilliant marketing move, something that the block M has been pretty good at throughout the years. So here are the latest videos from Tom’s super Hollywood movie mogul. I think they’re funny enough to post and as I said before, I respect Cruise for doing this and at least attempting to stay relevant to the younger generation.
Could Cruise have a possible full-length spin-off with this character? Hell, MacGruber got made. I am interested to see how well the upcoming Mr. and Mrs. Smith knockoff Knight and Day does for him, as I think it might be one of his last gasps at being a big time star. It better at least hammer on the similarly themed Killers, just sayin’. Now I have to go wash my hands and check to see if I got my “hood pass” revoked for posting anything with Pattison and Lautner in the title. Sellout. “Get back, you don’t know me like that.” Enjoy.
