Super Bowl: Scientology Ad Promises "The Age of Answers" (Video)

A still from Scientology's Super Bowl ad

The ad comes as the church deals with fallout from a buzzy Sundance doc.

The Church of Scientology has aired a Super Bowl ad in light of ongoing controversy over a Sundance documentary centered on the religion.

The ad features voiceover accompanied by quick clips of footage including a person hiking, a DNA strand and a close-up of an eye.

"We live in an age of searching: to find solutions, to find ourselves, to find the truth," the announcer says in the ad. "Now imagine an age in which the predictability of science and the wisdom of religion combined. Welcome to the age of answers."

This is not the first time the church has paid to air an ad during the pricey platform. Scientology ads aired during the Super Bowl in 2013 and 2014 as well.

This follows the doc Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief debuting earlier this month at the Sundance Film Festival. The church has launched a Twitter account to discredit the film, which focuses on Hollywood's connection to the faith.
