Celebrity Redemption Through Comedy

It's incredible how easy it is for celebrities to reinvent themselves after they do something stupid that alienates their fans and the general public. And it appears that Jimmy Kimmel is more than willing to help scandal-smeared stars rehab their image with an effective dose of self-parodying comedy. Fortunately for us, the result actually is pretty hilarious.

First Jimmy Kimmel helps us forget all about Tom Cruise's crazy scientology documentary.


Then it gets even better. Remember when Mel Gibson got drunk and went on an anti-Semitic tirade? Nope! And you won't either, after you watch this inspired movie trailer.


This is truly funny stuff, but these videos also help you (and the celebrities) forgive and forget their troubles. If only it were that easy for the rest of us...

Hey, keep in mind that the rest of us don't have the media to worry about...

A valid point. And I'm not necessarily judging celebrities for their mistakes--we all make them--I'm just pointing out that it's very easy for celebrities to make and re-make their image. And the general public will eat it up. Look at all the comments on the Gibson video about how hilarious and awesome he is. These are probably a lot of the same people who skewered him after the DUI. Just sayin'.
